Something to consider...

Pep Boys is an auto parts store. Many of their customers are do-it-yourself car buffs that change their own oil, do minor maintenance on their own cars, and are generally mechanically savvy. To me, that equals a much higher percentage of potential customers that will fix their broken RC's to play with them another day versus those purchased at a department store or online.

This could be a very, very big step for the hobby.

Thats an excellent point. I also feel that it actually helps the hobby shops. I think as people get into the hobby and want to upgrade, they'll seek out what the hobby shops have to offer. I'd be surprised if Pepboys stocks after-market parts...
