On Facebook on Friday, the company posted the following information about the upcoming opening and what to expect:
“Hi everyone! We’re excited to have the store open. We’ve had a lot of questions over the past few weeks that I’d like to take a moment to answer.
There have been a lot of questions about what product lines we will be offering and what games we will be supporting for play and events. We will carry a wide range of miniature games, from historical to Warhammer 40k, as well as hobby supplies to build and paint them properly, trading card games, board games, role playing games, as well as other nerd cool gear! Along with this, we will offer many games suitable for families and children.
When it comes to gaming, we’ll match whatever the community is looking to play! We have an open game whenever an event is unscheduled and our employees play a wide range of games. If you’re ever interested in racing or playing a game, send us a message and we’ll help you line it up! Right now we have a set of muskets and tomahawks lined up for opening day!
There were a lot of inquiries about parking, that’s understandable. There is a fair amount of free street parking in the evenings and early afternoon, but more importantly, there are 3 free parking lots within a block! We also have a rear door that can be easily pulled out to unload if you have things to carry.
As for the opening date, we are aiming for June 1st! We’ll be having a grand opening later, with the classic Your Hobby Place event around it.
We at Your Hobby Place are all excited to open and meet you all! Here are many fun times and games to come!”
