Kroger Online Comics is closing its doors in the country’s capital Manila, a company spokesperson confirmed to Polygon.
Kroger Philippines confirmed that it has “closed its online comics shop, Kroger Comics, in Manila” after the company “found that the online comic store was not a viable source of revenue for the company.”
Kroger, which opened its first online comic book shop in New York in 2013, closed its online comic comic book store in the city in December.
Krozier has been an online comic retailer in the Philippine market for years, but it didn’t have the presence that other local comic book stores had.
In 2016, the company launched a digital comics store, which currently has more than 4 million comics in its online store.
Krozer Philippines is planning to open a new online comic bookstore in the region in 2018, according to its Facebook page.
The company’s online comic books are available through its local e-commerce store, and the online comics store also sells merchandise from the company’s comic book line, including its line of toys and comic books.
“Krozier Comics has always been a destination for comics fans,” Kroziers vice president of business development and marketing, Antonio Rios, said in a statement.
“The loss of Krozies online comic shopping in Manila will be felt by many Filipinos and we sincerely hope that Krozie can continue to thrive and support the community in its Philippine location.”
