Hey thanks for the heads up, if you don't tell me, I guess I will never find out.

Re: Great Hobbies

I have not had any issues with my online orders. Last was a month ago and took a week to deliver.

Re: Great Hobbies

I've done a fair bit of business with Great Hobbies and always had excellent service. Fast shipping, well-packaged so arrived intact. Prices are reasonable, not the cheapest but fair.

Re: Great Hobbies

Me Too. Quite a few orders, two .60 size kits, one medium size electric foamy, two O.S. electric motors, etc, etc.

Never a problem. Delivered to the other end of this large and beautiful country on time and without a scratch. Would order again in a heartbeat, if I had any money left...

Re: Great Hobbies

I picked up an order at the Charlottetown store yesterday. I think it epitomized why I always prefer doing business in person.

- They know me as soon as I walk in.
- My order was ready to go
- They insisted on opening the box of the ARF I was buying, to ensure that all the parts were perfect (and they were).
- Even though I placed the order some time ago, and it had been waiting for me for a couple of weeks, they still gave me (without asking) the anniversary discount on the whole thing.
- As always, they helped me carry everything out to the car. Again, without my asking.

So on the whole, I think GH is a pretty tough act to follow.

I *do* have a concern regarding the Charlottetown store though. Ask I predicted when the shipping business centralized in Mississauga, the amount of newly-released product making it to that store has dropped off considerably. I had to order my new H9 Thunderbolt and specify pick-up. From watching the online inventory, I've seen DX9 radios arrive several times at other locations... I think this store received one, once. Before Christmas. The new ParkZone Mosquito, also out for several months? Several deliveries to other locations... but not PEI. I "get" the business requirements behind it all, it's just sad to see the "home" location slowly dying.

Re: Great Hobbies

Used Great Hobbies for years, with trusting service. But lately I have had a few issues with orders, it seems to take longer; but that may be the mail service cutback ? Last Dec. I had an order which was late and finally I got a tracking number which I took to the post office and they tracked it to the wrong warehouse in my city and it still took three working days to come across town. Xmas rush may have caused this.

Re: Great Hobbies

I haven't ordered much on line for a while but I need a few things now so went to Hobby Wholesale's site - you guessed it!

Changed AGAIN!

Now their past websites have not been the easiest to navigate but this one is just bad! Key words in the "search" kept bringing up... "no items found", the home page has nothing for sale on it, it took me quite a while to find anything at all. Then most of the items listed had "no image" and "no product info".

A couple of E mails put me on to what I want - I think. We will see when it arrives. I am hoping this site is not complete and will improve with time.

In spite of my negative comments earlier about Great Hobbies, their website is very easy to get around in and I found what I wanted there in just a couple key strokes. Now if we could combine the G.H. website with the H.W. service we would have a real winner!
