Winter Is Here Again

This week has seen the weather turn ugly in some areas of the province, prompting us to remind our customers that on days that the weather is questionable, please call ahead to verify that we have made it to the store.  The number there is (519) 364-1390.  While every effort is made, there have been situations in the past couple of years where road closures have prevented us from getting to the store.  If we are unable to get to the store due to weather we change the message on our machine to indicate this, so calling ahead is highly recommended during the nasty weather of the winter months.

Great Gift Ideas

The gift giving season is here once again and we welcome everyone to fill out the on-line wish list to help us steer in the right direction those shopping for you.

We have many great gift ideas, for all types of price ranges.  From main gifts to stocking stuffers we have many items in stock for all levels of the hobby (gift cards are also available).

Special of the Month

Our special of the month for December is as follows:  Purchase $50.00 or more of Woodland Scenics products before tax and receive 10% off those products.

Check out the listing of those that are in stock.

Boley Vehicles End

It has recently been announced that Boley will no longer be making their 1:87 vehicles.  We are receiving the last orders of these in the next few weeks, and then after that it will only be the stock that is in the store that will be available until it is sold out.  So for best selection, shop soon to avoid disappointment.

Consignment Area

As many are aware, we maintain a consignment area in the store as well as listing these items on line.  Over the last few weeks we have received many treasures which we have added to the catalogue.  If you are searching for some deals, or a hard to find item, you need to check out the consignment area.  Stock there comes and goes so check back often to see what has been changed.

If you have items that you would like to have added to our consignment area please contact us to arrange for your items to be added.

Clearance Items

We have recently done an update to the HO product catalogue to reflect items that are on clearance prices.  Any of the items with -CL at the end of their product number indicate a clearance item and reflects the new clearance price while stock is available.
