That's correct, nowhere did it say Dockter's was closing. Here's the article: http://www.madison.com/archives/read...75072:BUSINESS

my bad

Someone told it to me and showed me the article but i skimmed it obviously not closely enough.

anyway that is good news. there needs to be someone out there to keep rc performance honest. They are 10 miles round trip closer to me and have always done right by me.

Shane, can you remove this thread?

If Hobby Horse wasnt so expensive......


Seen items there that were 20% HIGHER than even Dockters for the same thing. If I'm not mistaken, Hobby Horse had a online store also but was not user friendly.

One thing I've noticed over the years is hobby stores do come and go at times. We went from having 3 here in Janesville to just 1 now and that one is slacking.

hobby horse is even less user friendly in the store.

I was in there a couple of years ago and stood at the counter for 15 mins, two people were behind the counter and one person was in the back and no one ever offered to help me. I wouldn't go back there if they were the last shop standing. I don't know how they stay in business, i'da fired the whole lot of them.

No kidding. I asked if there was any gas boat clubs in Madison and they got snippy with me.
