“Chico, California, November 16, 2007 – On Tuesday November 13th, Hobbico decided to close the A Main Hobbies dealer account with Great Planes Model Distributing. This account was closed without A Main Hobbies’ knowledge, and Hobbico/Great Planes will not provide any reason for closing this account. The A Main Hobbies dealer account with Great Planes was in good financial standing. Since the morning of Tuesday November 13th, A Main Hobbies had been trying to reconcile this situation with Hobbico/Great Planes, and on Thursday November 15th A Main Hobbies received a final phone call from Hobbico/Great Planes indicating their decision is final and will not be changed.
Due to this change, for an uncertain period of time, A Main Hobbies may no longer be able to offer certain brands of products for our customers to purchase. Some of these brands include:
* O.S. Engines
* Great Planes
* O’Donnell Racing
We apologize to our customers who have purchased those brands from us in the past and will no longer be able to purchase parts and accessories for them through A Main Hobbies. We will have a limited supply of these brands of products available at special prices until our stock is gone.
