I braved the snowstorm today in Lansing, MI to check out my local hobby shop. As I was paying for my stuff I was making small talk with the guys there. They told me that they are going to close up around the end of February.
I am seriously bummed about this. They've been here in Lansing for almost 30 years. The next closest hobby shop is about 1 1/2 hours from here. But, between declining interest and online sales they just can't compete in a town this size any more. Jack "the 109 nut"
