This is an unfortunate turn of events, but HPH will have to shut down for good in a few weeks. The last several months have stretched my cash reserves to their limits since business wasn't very good since the winter. :(

However, that means that EVERYTHING in the store is on sale. Come in ASAP to get the best deals on the "good stuff, " as all the rest will be found on eBay shortly.

I'd like to thank those of you that have supported the business, and I'd like to take this opportunity to remind all of you to support your local shops whenever possible. :)

:( :( :( :( :(

This is certainly very disappointing news none of us want to hear. Running a local retail hobby shop is very difficult to say the least these days with the mail order companies the internet and ebay. There is a upside however. Hopefully, now if you decide to stay involved in RC you will be able to become one of us (just hobbiest's) again. You can be more flexible on your racing schedule as far as day(s) to race and forms of racing. Maybe I am being selfish again because I want to hang out with you on race days which has not happened much in the past year or so.

One thing to keep in mind Barry, the business may have failed,,,,,,,you did not!
Best of luck in all your future endevours.

As a former LHS owner( for a very short time) I know how hard it is to juggle a full time job, new family and a hobbyshop. Not easy at all. Sorry to hear about this. I'm still trying to recover the great loss, keep your head up and good luck in the future. Don't let this get you down. Every thing happens for a reason.
