In the fifteen or so years I've been flying, we've lost three good Hobby Shops in my area. There is one still open about seven miles away, but during the winter months it is open very limited hours due to the high heating costs.
I purchase whatever I can from this shop but it is difficult to catch them when they are open. Many times they do not have what I am looking for. The owner is very good about ordering whatever I need and usually cuts me a break on the price. The difficulty is if I order something, it could be two or three weeks before I can get to the store when it is open. The next closest shops are over an hours drive away. Under these circumstances, mail order works best for me.
