We're Moving The Store!

The deal was verbally finalized today! After beginning Modellbahn Ott Hobbies in 1983, we moved out our first store location in Boyertown in about 1987 and into the Gilbertsville Shopping Center. We stayed there about 2 years and moved into our present location, 1/2 mile away, in about 1989. We've been in our current location for just about 20 years and our building grew from 2000 sq. ft. into 4200 sq. ft. in 1993. In addition to the showroom, we had an 1800 sq. ft. room on our lower level where we had slot car tracks, storage and eventually war gaming with miniatures. The 2000 sq. ft. basement under the original store was used for storage. About 8200 sq.ft. total in both levels. We are moving 2 miles into what used to be the Tru-Glo (and formerly K-Milk) businesses next to a Final Results Fitness Center just off of Rt. 100 at Grosser Rd., one mile south of the Rt. 100/Rt. 73 interchange. We will occupy a space of roughly 11,000 sq. ft. It will allow us to have a 6000 sq. ft. showroom, a 2200 sq. ft. room for Indoor RC racing, an outdoor RC track, a large pond for RC boats plus more showroom and storage. There will also be the possibility to set up an RC Flying Field on the property. We're very excited about the changes we see in store for 2009 and beyond. We'll keep you updated.
