Great Hobbies is a retail and mail order supplier of model related hobby supplies, serving model builders since 1984. Although our focus is primarily radio controlled models of all types, we also carry other lines of products such as plastic & die-cast models, model rockets, wooden ship models, control line, free flight, kites and neat toys.
We are Canada's largest radio control dealer and have four locations for walk-in trade; one in Edmonton, Alberta, two in Ontario, Mississauga and Ottawa, and one in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Please refer to our Contact Page for more information on locating our stores.
Great Hobbies headquarters is located in Prince Edward Island, home of "Anne of Green Gables" and the Confederation Bridge, the world's longest continuous span bridge over ice covered waters (only in the winter).
Our business has grown primarily by word of mouth through satisfied customers. Our philosophy is to build the business one step at a time so that our customers can remain satisfied with our service and that we maintain tight control over product and service as we grow. We intend to be around to serve you for many years to come.
We are proud to say that our order fill rates are very high, and, more often than not, you will find us filling your order completely, the same day you place it. Of course it is impossible to have absolutely every item in stock all the time, but our close attention to inventory flow, with the help of our computer system and our high order frequency, will offer you a service that is virtually unparalleled anywhere in the country. These factors will also ensure quick turnaround on any part you wish to have specially ordered or an item which may have to be backordered.
If you have any questions or suggestions for products or services, of any nature which you would like to see us consider, please feel free to pass them along to us. Generally, if we are not handling a product, it is because few people have asked for it or because sourcing it is consistently a problem. We also appreciate any constructive criticism you can give us to help serve you better.
Our goal is to provide you, our customer, with a wide selection of products, at the lowest price possible, backed by outstanding customer service. Be sure to check out our seven awesome reasons for shopping with Great Hobbies!
