Spotlighting 51 Locally Owned Businesses In West Broward

The Project

We know people prefer to buy local. In fact, national companies are now branding themselves to look and feel like local businesses. Our mission is to help small locally owned businesses in the West Broward community expand their reach and grow their online presence.

One of the biggest challenges for locally owned businesses is establishing a strong community network, so that potential customers can find and choose local. This challenge is intensified by the ability of nationally owned businesses to invest large sums of money into branding, advertising and online networking.

We believe in supporting and investing in our local community. That’s why we started the Fifty One In project. Over the next year, our goal is to spotlight 51 locally owned businesses in our West Broward community. This will bring targeted information about them to the web, where the majority of people turn today to find what they are looking for. We also will promote local events and “live local” ideas, so you can easily follow what’s happening in your neighborhood to get out & get to know your neighbors.

These spotlights are just the beginning. We aim to build a quality comprehensive network for our community, so our neighbors can choose to support each other. If you are a local business owner, please contact us for more information about receiving a free spotlight.

Crossroad Comics

crossroad comics thanos captain america Crossroad Comics fights the good fight to provide quality customer service and the lowest subscriber discounts for comic book lovers in West Broward.


Located between Commercial and Oakland on N University Drive, you’ll see the big red COMICS & GAMES sign outside and the glow of the green lantern emblem in the front window.


This quiet comic book store has an extensive inventory of classic comics and the newest books. You’ll find several displays of busts & statues, a variety of other memorabilia and board games. Check out the New Comics Wall towards the back.


The difference between Crossroad Comics and other comic book stores is the personal customer service and the deep subscriber discounts. The knowledgable staff members are easy to talk to and often go out of their way for their customers. Subscribers receive a 20% discount on New Comic Wednesdays, which is double the discount of competitors.


One subscriber, who first moved their pool list from the competition to Crossroad Comics because of the selection and discounts, added “the best perk of Crossroad Comics is getting wrapped in conversation with the staff. New Comic Wednesdays are my favorite day of the week.”


Crossroad Comics is located on 4952 N. University Drive, Lauderhill, FL 33351

    This was the notice on their Facebook page – “Greetings to all the customers and friends of Crossroad Comics & Games. As some of you may have heard by now, I am in the process of leaving the business and am selling the store to Past Present Future (PPF). While PPF has big plans in store, Sam and Chris will still be there to support all of your comic and gaming needs…so although PPF is returning to Lauderhill (now with 3 stores to better feed your habits)…the friendly faces you already know will still be there as always. Thanks to everyone for your support and business over these past 5 years and I hope you continue to support the shop for years to come! Regards to all…Alan, Owner – Crossroad Comics & Games.”

    • We are hearing news of an expansion for the store! Here’s the lastest: “Past Present Future is happy to announce that we are adding Crossroads Comics & Games in Lauderhill to the PPF Comics chain of stores. We will be adding dozens of new product lines to the Lauderhill location over the next few weeks! Look for our Grand Reopening of our 3rd location in September.”
