Hobbyking to open its first retail store in Sydney
Posted: 08 Mar 2011 at 10:26pm
As part of Hobbyking's expansion we will be opening our first retail store in Sydney, Australia within the next 60 days.
This store will be stocking both locally aquired R/C gear and HobbyKing products, it will also act as a HobbyKing service center.
This is a pilot program and once the bugs have been ironed out, replicated in other regions. I will be posting more information as events unfold.

I'm glad it's not in Melbourne.

Thing is - what will the retail shop offer that isn't available online?

Being the service centre, does that mean you can take your warranties in and swap them over??

It'll be nice of a local retail store means they stock more of the "non AUS warehouse" type items locally.

Yes Gouch - that's where it gets interesting. I'm guessing that their retail pricing will be about the same as the mailorder+postage from the NSW warehouse. If it's markedly different, then HK will then be essentially in competition with itself, which wouldn't make sense.
