What's New?

Due to the latest Government announcement on Sunday 29 March, as of Wednesday 1 April we have taken the very regretful decision to temporarily close the doors to the public effective immediately and to only offer mail order and eBay sales sent out weekly.
This is to both comply with the revised edict of avoiding public gatherings of 2 or more which is virtually unworkable in a shop environment, and also to protect both staff and their families, as well as our customers and theirs from any risk of potential social transmission of the Covid-19 virus from shared contact.
We hope these measures are short-lived and we can return to normal opening hours as soon as possible, but that decision ultimately rests with Government and Health Authorities giving us the all clear to commence safe trading again.
We would like to thank all our customers for their support and understanding, and wish them and their families the very best in staying well in these difficult times.
Hopefully you have already got a stockpile of hobby products to enjoy in your home isolation while we wait to re-open ;-)
Kind regards,
The Albury Hobby Centre Team
