Be aware that Tower's coupon codes only apply to shippable items. I just tried to order and so many items were on back order that I could not reach the coupon level. Then there is always the annoying message on other items. Quite sad to see this happen to a good long standing company with one of the best paper catalogs out there.

I just ordered a starter box for my old Duratrax truck that was on my wish list from Tower. Figured I better get it, since it looks like NOS and probably will be gone forever soon.

Well, here's some more news: Sam's club has closed 260 stores in five states including Illinois.
As predicted there is now an ongoing retail outlet extinction.

As a hobby consumer, its hard to keep up with the changing market. I believe in brand name stuff, but when I've just slapped down over a grand for a new Losi short course truck with a tekin brushless and lipo setup, its going to take a while before I can buy again. Its not like the old days where I could have picked up 2 or 3 Tamiya cars and radios and have been good for a year. $400-$500 RTR price tags are starting to become the norm. What newbie is able to get into that game and try it? Then we have the FAA on our backs making me feel like a criminal every time I pull out my quadcopter.

Kudos to Tower for calling me about a problem with my credit card. A nice lady called and the problem got fixed.
