About Us

The Hobby Centre opened in May 1986. It has relocated 6 times and is currently in its biggest and, in our humble opinion, best location to date. Lots of major road access, great parking and space to display our large selection of products and space to hold meetings, classes and special events. We are a full time hobby store, and we carry a varying array of hobby products. Our specialty is scale models but we also carry many other lines. We didn't carry Radio Control products, but since the closure of Fred Z's Dynamic Hobbies we have started to expand in that area too. We have sold comic books as long as  we have been open but due to declining sales and interest in the genre here, we offer a subscription service and do not buy or deal in back issues to any extent. Model Trains, aimed at the beginner in HO and N scales, Model Rockets, Diecasts are a few of the other lines we stock.

Our hesitation to sell online prior to this has been that we are basically a store that carries a lot of things, but not a lot of any one thing. We will do our best to try to keep our listings current and relevant but given such a fluid inventory we cannot guarantee we'll have everything we list all the time (but we'll do our best to get it quick if we can and tell you what is going on).

Thanks for visiting our site and we look forward to serving the needs of hobbyists everywhere we can.
