Stop by to see us at Hobby Shops near me in Norwalk, Ohio or Hobby Shops near me in Tampa, FL. Over 38 years serving as a Hobby Store.
Daniels Hobbies was actually named Daniels Hobby and Electronics, and was the brain child of Marc Daniels. Marc had a keen interest in model flight and electronics repair as a teenager and found himself fixing TVs for friends and family around Berlin Heights, OH.. and flying anything he could get his hands on in his spare time.
With support from his parents, Sid and Jenny Daniels, and with a small loan from his Uncle, Marc opened Daniels Hobby and Electronics way back in 1978 and from there the story began. Daniels was the childhood hobby shop of the current owners Kurt and Rob Gornek. Kurt, Rob and Shanin also founded RC Overstock, an online retailer with warehouse operations in Norwalk, Ohio.
Together, Marc, Rob and Kurt are still focused on customer service first and share in the responsibilities of running and growing Daniels Hobbies. We'd love to meet you and invite families and enthusiasts of all ages to stop by the shop and start their journey through everything from airplanes, cars, trucks, buggies, boats, drones, and much more.
We've outgrown our home roots and are gearing up for the next decade. In the spring of 2016, we preformed a full renovation on our original location that we served our customers from for the last 38 years. Due to the overwhelming response and growth, we sadly have run out of space for inventory. We recognized a need to relocate to offer a comfortable showroom and continue to expand our product lines. We now have a fresh, vibrant retail space in Downtown Norwalk. It is just a short drive from our original shop. Fresh, bright, clean and new with completely new inventory. We want your shopping experience to be a good one, and that starts with a comfortable, clean and modern environment. We are excited to see each of you in our new LARGE retail location.
Stop by and check out the goods, tell us your story, and let us know how we can help. We strive to make Daniels the place where everyone feels welcomed and inspired to learn more, do more, and grow their skills as hobbyists.

You won't find anything on our shelves that we wouldn't proudly own ourselves. The most common thread between everyone at Daniels is that we all appreciate a good hobby experience above everything. No, you don't have to spend a fortune for a good experience. Good hobby experiences come from picking the right products that meet your skill level and making smart buying choices where VALUE is always greater than the price tag. We vet all of our products before we put them on the shelves. We want to foster a long term relationship with our customers. Many folks have been loyal customers since we opened almost 40 years ago. Good advice, helpful guidance, and vast product knowledge are just some of the values we hold dear and work hard to execute every day.
RC hobbies can be very technical. Radio system programming, power plant design and configuration, parts and repairs...they can make a newcomer's head spin. There's also a lot of BAD advice out there online, so we pride ourselves in helping you make the right decisions up front and keeping you on the water, the road, the dirt, or in the air after things go wrong.
After all, if you aren't crashing and breaking them, you aren't using them! We offer reasonable rates for everything from simple repairs to complex rebuilds. We're also more than willing to take the time and help you understand how to fix it yourself.
Let's face it, we can't stock everything! We can, however, get it to you within a few days. We place orders every week on Wednesdays. Get your order in by Wednesday at noon and we'll have it waiting for you on or before the following Wednesday. We do ask that you prepay for any non-stock items but try us out and you'll find we're cheaper than anyone else on most everything we sell, you pay zero shipping, and we stand behind your product - get that from an online store!
