Model Crafts and Hobbies has been my go-to brick-and-mortar since I fell back into the hobby a few years back now (in fact, it was walking past their shop window almost daily that made me bite!). I came across these listings on TradeMe looking for display cases - link - and can't help thinking they look very familiar. Is MC&H just having a re-fit of the shop, or is there another hobby shop close-down on the horizon? :dry:

Closing down. Too many years of bad management and poor service. Think it was always on the cards after Peter H sold the shop and Mike R left.

Hi All

Has it been confirmed Modelcrafts and Hobbies is closing down?

I could ring them but they're not really into customer service!

Regards

Paul

They close for good at Xmas time according to the current owners although there are one or two people expressing an interest at taking over but no offers to date.
