Local Hobby Store to Close
Pat Dwyer has been in the hobby store business for 60 years. Her store, Hobby Land, will close it's doors on August 31. She originally started her business in a small A frame building on Central Ave., then she moved to another location downtown, then eventually opened her business in Holiday Village. Not sure of the exact year, but the Great Falls Sporting Goods Store was closing downtown and Pat saw it a a good central location and she would have lots of room to expand her hobby business. Many of us will miss her. It's a sad thing when a local hobby store closes, and that is not a good thing for local hobbyists. Now they have to get all their stuff via mail order. Sometimes that is cheaper, but it sometimes takes longer too. Many a time I needed a part for a airplane project, and I was able to go downtown to get it the same day and keep on pace with my project. We will miss you Pat, and thanks for servicing the Great Falls area for 60 years.
