Hobby Shop of the Month-Hobbytown, Columbia, SC
HobbyTown of Columbia is one of our newest sponsors. It used to be located in the Northpointe Shopping Center, in the Northeast part of town, but the new address is 326 St. Andrew's Rd, Suite E, Columbia, SC 29210. They have a good selection of parts, radios, RC Cars, models, quads, boats, and even planes. They have a large section devoted to the model train enthusiast.
You'll find Kites and other hobby interests, but their specialty seems to be off-road RC Cars and Trucks, in all price ranges. In addition, you'll find everything from wheels and tires to bodies and paint and everything in between. There is even an RC racetrack on site. These guys are experts in the field.
Planes range from trainers, gliders, Scale, and 3D, primarily electrics. They've got plenty of Dubro goodies, glues, push-rods, and other knickknacks. I've used them extensively, when I need that one more piece to get the plane ready to fly.
Hours are 11 AM to 7PM Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. On Friday they stay open until 9PM. Saturday is 10 AM to 8PM and Sunday, noon until 5 PM.
