According to the Shreveport Times, Hobby Lobby is going to open a store in Shreveport, La. IT'S ABOUT TIME!!! I had heard rumors of this since the old K-Mart in East Gate Shopping Center had closed down. The rumor was eventually it was going to open up there. But according to the newspaper it is going to open in the old Service Merchandise building. This is great because it means I will no longer have to go to Texarkana, or West Monroe to get the 1/2 price deals they have on occasion. It is scheduled to open the third quarter of 2005. :thumbsup:

Bossier Hobby and Craft?

What about Tom Dobbin's place, i'm pretty sure it's Bossier City Hobby and Craft. He moved from his old location several years ago to a nicer area of town. Is he still open? Used to be one of my favorite customers! He always had a HUGE selection of plastics, some of them pretty old too.

Excellent news about the Hobby Lobby! I have been making special trips to Alexandria to go to the Hobby Lobby there, but I actually go to Shreveport more often for other shopping (the wife loves to shop)...this is good news!

Oh man Jon, you are so lucky. It's unlikely anyone will ever put up a Hobby Lobby in desolate Youngstown.
Still I can't complain too much. Youngstown still has two fine long established hobby shops. Boardman Hobby and Amer's Hobby shop. I know both owners well and neither of them plan on folding anytime in the near future.

Bossier

Tom doesn't have many big sales that i know of, but is truely worth looking up if you live in Bossier. He's also big into RC stuff. When i met him in the mid 80's he still had the late 60's early 70's Corgi and Dinky Sci Fi stuff in the original displays and in the box! ;)
