I live in the Conejo Valley....an area in Southern California just north of Los Angeles. In the time I've lived here (on and off since around 1980), I've seen probably 5 or 6 hobby shops come and go.

I don't think a single one lasted more then a year or two...except one...Marty's Hobbies in Thousand Oaks. It's been here since I can remember, and it's still around. They have great service, they usually match online prices, they and seem to get along well with the big distributers. Its seems the opposite of every LHS story I hear. Not sure what their secret is, but it works.
