KRACKERS, a comics and collectables shop in Taunton, has held a place in the hearts of all local fantasy fans since 1980 and become deeply rooted in the town's culture.

The shop, found at 5 Bath Place, has seen success over the years, but its secluded location means many who stumble upon it were not already aware of its existence, something owner Anthony Peach attests to.

"Lots of people don't know it's here," he said.

"They discover it, come in and go 'oh, this is great!'.

"People who find it (Bath Place) always come back."

67-year-old Anthony has worked at Krackers since it first opened 44 years ago, when it was run by his mother and brother.

“We’re still here, we’re still in Bath Place," he added.

“We’re still going strong.

“Come along and see what we’ve got inside - we’ve got a range of games, pop figures, manga, graphic novels, and more.”

The shop started its 'Krazy Karpet Sale' earlier this year, which includes discounts from 20 per cent on almost everything in store.

The sale is still going, and fantasy lovers can benefit from discounts of up to half price on selected comics.
