Hi everybody,
I don't know if this is in the correct forum or not but I figure that this is an event for me so...
If you live in or around the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania area, it's a Hobbytown hobby shop, and the grand opening is tomorrow (Saturday, July 12).
It's in the Robinson Town Center in Robinson Township. It's located in the former Pier One Imports storefront, across from the Ikea store.
They quietly opened the doors on Monday (I assume to get their feet wet and work out any last minute bugs). I stopped in on Wednesday to take a look and was very pleased by what I saw. Lots of plastic on the shelves of all sorts. Plenty of planes and cars and a pretty good amount of armor kits too. Also, lots of tools, paints and misc. supplies as well. What surprised me was the selection of ships that are available. Unfortunately for me, not much in the way of figures but I can hope that may change. Lots of other hobbys represented too.
All good news for me! :-) And hopefully for you too.
