Bundaberg Hobbyworld is closed

Hey folks.  As of today the 14th of October 2011, Bundy Hobbyworld has closed for good.  Many thanks to those of you who were loyal supporters of the shop.  I couldn't have lasted as long as I did without your patronage.  Also, a huge thanks to the guys who helped me pack and remove what was left!  It would have been a much, much harder job without your help.  You all know who you are :-)

Closing down sale!

Closing down sale starts immediately and ends at close of business on the 7th of October 2011.  I'm taking up to 40% off everything I have left.  So, if you're looking for a bargain, now's the time!

I'm happy to continue ordering items in until I close, but it's a cash up front deal and normal retail pricing applies.

Bundaberg Hobbyworld is closing down.

Well folks, the time has come to move on. As such, Bundaberg Hobbyworld will be officially closing its doors as at the end of October this year. I've tried in vain for over 3 years to turn this business into something more than a just-scraping-by enterprise, but it's simply not to be.

It's disappointing to discover just how little help is available for someone in small business in this country. At every turn, any request for assistance has been met with absolute disinterest. If I didn't know better, I'd say the government and banks *want* small business to fail. There's no other explanation for the complete and total lack of compassion encountered when attempting to seek assistance to remain solvent. The obstinate, inflexible and downright unhelpful attitude of both entities is something you have to experience to fully appreciate. Unfortunately, I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy, so if you're reading this and considering starting a small business, save yourself the trouble and just go fishing instead. After 12 months of being an unemployable welfare recipient, you'll be eligible for more assistance than you can poke a stick at.

To those of you who have been loyal supporters of the shop, thank you very much for your support and I'm sorry to be leaving you without a dedicated hobby shop in town. To those people who persisted with purchasing online and then expecting free help, well, I think I've made my opinions of that behaviour rather well known in the past, so we'll just leave it at that.

September indoor date has changed

The date for our September indoor session has been changed to the 13th, which is a Tuesday, due to a scheduling conflict with a council function.
