Another Houston Hobby Shop Bites the Dust

July 26, 2014 at 8:26 pm | Blog | No comment


On top of the recent loss of Larry’s Hobbies in north Houston, comes the news that M&M Hobbies, a long-time fixture in Bellaire, is closing. I talked to the owner and he said they would be gone by the third week in August. Model railroad stuff is at %40 off and books are %20 off. Kits have not been discounted, but if spend enough money (say over $150) you can probably get a quantity discount. They still have quite a bit of paint in stock if you are in need of any, including Tamiya spray paints and Gunze spray Mr. Surfacer.

Also, if you have a built model in one of their display cases, you need to go down to the store and get it. They have contacted those people they have info for, but there are still models that need to go home.
