THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED BUSINESS!!


We appreciate you supporting our business! But in light of our Governor's announcement, we will only be here Saturday, March 21st (10:00 am to 5:00 pm).

After that time, we will be closed until April 7th

Please limit your time in our store ~ dart in and out for the safety of you and our staff.

We value each of our customers and wish you all the best! We hope that we can still be able to ship items to you if you are need of a hobby supply. We will keep you posted!

We all need to do our part to "lessen the curve" of this out break! We hope to see you when this is over and we can all breathe again!

Thank you all for your understanding!

Greg Bosak and Staff

A word from your local hobby store . . .
We hope this e-mail finds you in good health. The situation with the COVID19 virus is changing rapidly. We are encouraging all of our employees to follow CDC recommendations and to stay home if they are not feeling well. We plan to stay open as long as it makes sense and does not put anyone at risk.

We understand a lot of you are going crazy in your homes, but please remember "social distancing". Please make your visit as short as possible or better yet ~ call us (773-775-4848) and we can ship items to you. We want our employees and you to stay healthy and safe during this time!

I have been performing maintenance on two o gauge trains from my youth in order to 'gift" them to my grandsons. Some work was done thru the store and some work was done by me. The repair and replacement work thru the store was completed as promised and is excellent. I ordered parts for the work I was doing down to an order for two screws that totaled $2.22. These guys are knowledgeable and helpful and the stock in store as well as on line is superior. Go to shop around, talk about issues or buy a .25 cent screw. They treat you as a very important customer every time
