It's really a shame too, I remember when you went to a gas station, back in a time when the attendant would check the oil, water, tire air pressure and wipe the windshield while he was putting .39 a gallon gas in your tank. Inside he would have a cigarette machine, soft drink machine, some oil, and anti-freeze.
Now they sit on their ***** behind a counter that has so much stuff on it you can hardly hand over the money for the gas YOU pumped.
Hobby Shops are getting the same way with all the junk they have on the shelves.
They tend to follow the rule, "if you sling enough mud on the fence, some of it will stick." They're attitude about the hobby industry is, If I stock enough junk somebody will buy something. So many hobby shops are looking more like toy stores than actual hobby shops.
Hobby Lobby used to be a good supplier for to me. But I haven't ordered anything from them in a long time.
I've always tried to support my local hobby shops, but sometimes you have to go to where the product is. The one place I liked the most was Circus Circus. Now that was a hobby shop.
