HobbyTown Experiences Sales Growth Over the Holidays

“According to a National Retail Federation survey, fewer consumers shopped over the Thanksgiving weekend and those who did, spent less. HobbyTown same-store average Black Friday sales were up 5% over 2013, contradicting the national retail trend. We continue to build momentum for a strong Christmas shopping season and hope to outpace the NRF forecast of 4.1% growth for holiday sales.”

-Bob Wilke, President of HobbyTown

UPDATE: HobbyTown is proud to share that we continued to have a very successful holiday season through the end of December. It was the best on record! Merry Christmas and happy holidays.
