Unfortunately the story I hear about Nonstop Hobbies is that he is moving. He may continue his online store. Best of luck Marc I will miss you as I am sure others will. He has free shipping on in stock items over $100. in Canada

As an online store myself, I can answer your question. The LHS's have a store front, that means they have to cover $2,3,4,5,000 rent EVERY month. Which is why I don't operate a store front. My store room is in my basement, my office is a spare bedroom, less overhead.

Gravity works. I've tested it......often!!!

Canadian Distributor for Super 'Phatic! and other Deluxe Materials products " Sorry Chris that doesn't cut it as an answer. if you re read my post it SAYS these 4 online hobby shops are local hobby shops also Nonstop has a store in Palmerston Hobby Wholesale ,Great Hobbies ,RC Wings and Wheels also are local hobby shops in the towns of origin. These are the online stores whom are $30 or so less than the LHS in Kitchener and Streetsville. I would believethat these stores would have to charge their online price to walk in customers.Online stores are competitive with one another. LHS not all but some have the feeling they can charge what they want as you have no where else to go
