I drove past Smart Hobbies today and noticed big closing down banner on the doors. This CV19 story is hurting badly :(

Not that I doubt the effect of Covid but it seems they decided to close before lockdown already

Smart Hobbies Hi Geena, yes it is a closing down sale, will be closing end of March. Trevor was on sick leave and as of March is no longer involved at the shop. He will be pursuing new business interests still active in the field of hobbies.
