Have you read the latest Parma Hobby News?



Parma Hobby is closing its doors after nearly 22 years in business. On Tuesday, July 5th, we will begin to sell off all of the stock in the store at greatly reduced prices.

All items not currently selling at reduced pricing, will be marked down 30% (except magazines). Any items already reduced in price - with double pricing stickers (Retail Price marked down) will be further marked down.

Bob is selling some of the items he has used on the winter train displays over the years. Some of these items are rare. They will be on display with the sale prices clearly marked.

The shelving and display cases are available. Ask Bob about pricing.

It's been a great run and a whole lot of fun, but the time has come for us to move on to other things.

Bob, Sandy and Chris wish all of our customers/friends a wonderful and hobby-filled future. All of you have enriched our lives beyond measure. Some of you have become especially dear to us and we will miss you. We will miss ALL of you.

Thank you for your support, your creativity, your wonder in what you created. That was the best part --- so much beauty, individuality, creativity, passion ----- thank you, thank you, thank you.

Bob, Sandy and Chris
