I got wind of Mac closing his doors and like many of you that attend events there I was anxious to find out if this affected the field and events that go on there.
Just closing the shop. Everything else will continue as is. I plan to work on the field, play with a few models (aircraft type Smile), go to fly-ins, and have all of the events. Had a birthday Monday...69. Have been running the shop by myself and there is no time for anything else. Havenít done any sport flying in forever. About the only flying I do is the B-29 at events. So Iím going to change all that and kick back and enjoy whatever time I have left. Looking forward to it!
Greetings From Hodges Hobbies;
After a run of a little over 30 years Hodges Hobbies is closing the doors. I've decided it's time and will be winding things down over the next few months. I don't have a definite timetable or definite plan yet but things will grind to a halt sometime in the near future. It will be business as usual as the inventory goes down and expect some sales starting now with 20% off of everything in the store. Take care, Mac
Hey Mac, it sounds like you are getting your priorities in order.
WELCOME to "real" retirement!
I'm looking forward to being able to visit with you again at SEFF 2014. I think maybe this time we will have more time to visit and maybe even just sit by the fire and watch the evening go by.
