Thanks Gerry, that was one of my favorite hobby shops to visit back in the day when I lived in the Northern Burbs! I understand that they have shrunk the model section considerably and there is more R/C than ever there, much like Al's Hobby Shop in Elmhurst.
The car/truck part is 1 aisle and not stacked. Model railroad stuff is all but gone. RC is where the money is at and they were always big on it. Don Philips does come up from Saint Louis every few weeks to stay in touch.
Even when I lived in the Seattle area, I would stop by when visiting my in-laws and would mail order from time to time. I'll miss it when I move back.
