FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
B&B Hobbies is acquired by Daniels Hobbies and will open a New Retail Location on August 4, 2017.
The recently acquired B&B Hobbies of Hudson, Florida will open its doors as Daniels Hobbies at 17510 US-41 in Lutz, FL
LUTZ, FL. August 3, 2017 – Opening to the public on August 4, 2017, Daniels Hobbies will bring new movement and energy to Lutz and Pasco County. Radio control hobby enthusiasts in Hudson, FL and Northern Tampa have been shopping with B&B Hobbies for 30+ years. The recent acquisition of the business assets by Daniels Hobbies of Norwalk, Ohio will bring over 38+ years of hobby experience to the new retail location. Daniels Hobbies will offer over 300+ brands of radio controlled hobbies (cars, trucks, planes, helicopters and boats), drones, rockets, and more.
“We’re hobby enthusiasts ourselves. We purchased our childhood hobby shop, Daniels Hobbies, with the desire to bring back that neighborhood hobby shop experience,” stated Kurt and Rob Gornek. “We believe the B&B customers, and new customers alike, will appreciate our customer-centric focus and that neighborhood hobby shop experience. We strategically positioned ourselves within 5 miles of Lake Park RC Track to help fulfill that desire to buy and drive.”
The relocation was required due to the previous location of B&B Hobbies in Hudson having a non-transferrable lease and new terms were unable to be negotiated. While we recognize that the relocation may disappointment some in the Hudson community and further north, an extensive search for commercial real estate was conducted and we decided to place ourselves strategically in Northern Tampa so that Daniels Hobbies can recognize future expansion North and South with our new facility positioned as a center hub. With easy access from Rt. 54, Rt. 41, I75 & 275, Dale Mabry Hwy and 589, the new location aims to serve hobbyists throughout the Greater Tampa area.
Kurt Gornek states, “I hope to see those as far as Brooksville, Spring Hill and Lakeland coming to visit our shop. We want to share our passion and 38+ years of experience with the surrounding communities. We’re your local community hobby shop and hope to help you get started in hobbies or remain active with your hobby. Daniels Hobbies focuses on open market pricing so you won’t pay more than you would expect to pay at any other major online retailer. We offer price matching with major online competitors, special order discounts and we also offer an industry-leading customer loyalty program as an added benefit for shopping with us.”
Regular business hours are daily (seven days a week) 10:00 am – 6:00 pm at 17510 US Highway 41N in Lutz. You can reach us by phone beginning August 1st at (727) 862-4849 or visit us at: www.DanielsHobbies.com
