Glasgow’s Independent Geek Store
Opening its doors to Glasgow, Scotland in June of 2014 Geek-Aboo took on the task of opening up the Glasgow’s geek market to a whole new audience. With a growth in popularity of the Marvel & DC Comics movie series’ and the ever increasing success of programs like The Big Bang Theory – more people are being attracted to the characters many of us have read about and followed in comic books and graphic novels for years. This naturally increased the demand for merchandise associated with them, keeping an eye on the most popular geeky trends we source a wide variety of gifts, collectables and memorabilia for all levels of Geekery.
Where to find Geek-Aboo
You’ll find us around half way down Queen Street – one of Glasgow’s most popular shopping streets, we are located between the Clydesdale Bank and the Army Recruitment Office. If you are coming by car, there are a limited number of metered car parking spaces available on Queen Street, we are also only a short and flat walk away from both Glasgow Queen Street and Glasgow Central train stations.
