Who Is Outer Limits Boro?
Outer Limits Boro began its existence nearly fifteen years ago as Timely Treasures, an antique and collectibles store started by Randy Pearcy at the store’s original site, 1115 Memorial Blvd. in Murfreesboro. That location specialized in collectible knives, old tools and appliances and other antiques of all shapes and sizes.
And it also carried comic books – lots and lots of old comics from every publisher and every decade up to that time. Over the course of the years, the comics became a bigger and bigger part of the store, eventually overtaking and supplanting the other offerings within its walls.
Enter Chris Dyer. Chris was the successful owner of three comic stores in Tennessee located in Madison, Franklin, and Lebanon, and he approached Pearcy about making Timely Treasures the fourth Outer Limits. Although, Pearcy and Dyer never actually became partners, the store did undergo the name change and became a semi part of the chain.
After 9/11, Dyer got out of the comics business completely, selling his stores to individuals in each of the towns they represented. Pearcy continued with his store in Murfreesboro, until selling it to Chuck Cagle in July, 2006.
Outer Limits Boro operates under the idea that customers are family and deserve to be treated as such. Not a geek or nerd haven by any means (although they are integral parts of the family), OLB is proud to claim lawyers, doctors, pharmacists, engineers, professors, and law enforcement officials in its customer base. College and high school students abound. Horror and fantasy enthusiasts co-exist with Wolverine and Batman fans. Toy collectors share space with Magic fanatics. And unlike Washington DC, Democrats and Republicans actually find common ground within our walls.

The Outer Limits Boro Crew
Most people believe Chuck Cagle owns Outer Limits, although its more a fact that the store owns him. Health and frustration conspired nearly five years ago to persuade Cagle to buy Outer Limits from it's first owner, Randy Pearcy. Healthier now (and a bit less frustrated) he's making a living from a life-long love affair with comics and pop culture. The new site is a culmination of the dreams he and wife, Barbara (who Chuck lovingly refers to as LadyLimits), have had for the store ever since they bought it. Chuck's a Superman guy – although there's a soft spot in his heart for the old 1970's Avengers – and doesn't play any games. But he'll still shoot the occasional three-pointer when his knees permit.
Chase Cagle has been his father's right-hand man for nearly four-and-a-half years, and he never lets Dad forget it. Magic the Gathering and Heroclix are his games, although he'd rather be outside playing basketball and following the Boston Celtics. When not handling the Outer Limits Boro Ebay operation, Chase (more jock than geek) is known to ride motorcycles, write rap lyrics, and co-moderate the OuterLimitsBoro Facebook page. And, wow, you should see his Flash shrine!
Outer Limits Boro's ace Magic the Gathering guru, Steven Ardary, has called Murfreesboro home for the last six years. An avid baseball fan, Steven needs little introduction to the Outer Limits faithful, as he's made the store his home base for over four years, proving to be one of the store's most valuable assets. When he's not formulating some hipster plan to rule the universe, Steven is running Magic tournaments, catching up on Green Lantern and Daredevil, and helping moderate the OuterLimitsBoro Facebook page.
