End of the Line for Hobby Shop

Hobby Shops have been closing for years, its a sad trend. Competition with on-line retailers, direct sales from manufacturers, mail order, and rising business costs have put the squeeze on the local Hobby Shop. Soon, we will not have any left.

Here is an article from about a Hobby Shop closing in Pennsylvania.
Taylor’s Hobby World in Clarks Summit has less than two months left. The owners intend to sell the building by the end of April. They say it’s time to close up shop.
