BEST HOBBY SHOP (1999)
Can't find that metal die cast, 1:18 scale model of a 1947 black Cadillac ragtop convertible you've been looking for? It's here at the Hub Hobby Center, along with everything else the hard-core hobbyist needs. The expansive Richfield store features aisle upon aisle of goodies for model citizens and anyone who's seriously--or just casually--into radio-controlled cars, boats, and planes. You'll find a wall laden with hobbyist magazines, too. It's also your one-stop shop for boomerangs, water pistols, rubber-band guns, water balloon slingshots, puzzles, games, kites, and marked decks of cards. You can't beat the breadth and depth of the selection, which boasts over 35,000 items in the more than 10,000-square-foot showroom. And the employees are expert hobbyists themselves, which always makes for great customer service.
