HOMETOWN HOBBIES

3/16/02: Things are moving slowly (thanks to the insurance company's dawdling around), so it's looking like it will be April before we are able to reopen. So far, the merchandise has been removed, and the interior repairs and cleaning should be finished by the end of next week. The insurance adjuster is supposed to return next week to make a final judgement on the fixtures and carpet---we are hoping he will agree that they need to be replaced, since they are all heavily stained by the smoke and soot, even after intensive cleaning efforts. Once he makes his decision, we will be able to complete the refurbishing of the interior, and then start receiving merchandise shipments. So at this point, everything still depends on the insurance company, unfortunately. We will update again as soon as we have anything new to tell you. But for now, we're shooting for the first-to-middle of April.

2/14/02: The store will be closed until further notice due to the damage caused by the fire at a neighboring store on Sunday. The insurance adjusters have come and gone, and it looks like everything in the store--from merchandise to shelving units to display cases to our telephone--is a complete loss. Hopefully, the insurance company will act quickly to enable us to rennovate, restock, and reopen in the shortest period of time. At the moment though, we don't have any idea of what kind of timetable we're looking at, although we are hoping to reopen by the middle or end of March. We will continue to update the situation here, so keep checking back for a more definite reopening date. Regarding merchandise---the only merchandise which was not in the store at the time, and therefore is still saleable, are the following: Chronopia and WarZone miniatures and gaming books, and Pokemon and Star Wars collectible card card games singles. These may still be ordered through our email address. All other merchandise was in-store, and is now gone. Since we will need to restock everything, we would really like to hear your suggestions as to what merchandise you would like to see in the store on a regular basis. Please email us with your suggestions---this is an excellent opportunity for you to make this your kind of hobby shop.
