Hobby Shop Prepares to Shut Down
Michelle San Miguel
A longtime business in Bismarck is closing shop after 18 years. Dave`s Hobbies, located off of Main Avenue and Mandan Street, is going out of business. Owner Dave Brandt says competition from chain stores and online sellers has hurt his business. The shop became well known for its model trains, as well as its craft items.
But Brandt says hobbies like building model trains aren`t so popular with customers anymore.
"The idea of doing something that takes a week is unthinkable to anybody anymore."
Dave`s Hobbies closes Monday.
