Huge Liquidation Sale: Metro Hobbies Melbourne Swanston St

Due to the compulsory acquisition of our Swanston Street store by the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority, we will be closing our doors after 30 years of trading. Starting this Saturday, 29 July, we will be having a massive stock liquidation, with markdowns across the entire store on all stock at our CBD store only, so get in quick to get big discounts on quality brands in store! Doors close on 1st September.

Don’t worry though, we expanded our Box Hill store last year to a much larger location meaning that we can continue to grow this store and the product range on offer. We will also be relocating the same technical expertise from our CBD store to our Box Hill store and we are only a phone call or email away. We will continue to look for more opportunities to expand Metro Hobbies in the near future.

Image
Includes Meng, Takom, Kinetic, Hobby Boss, Eduard, Dragon, Miniart, Roden, Special Hobby, Aoshima, Zvezda, Zoukie Mura... EVERY BRAND except Bandai

Image
ALL Diecast, hobby supplies (glues, paints, tools, airbrushes, materials), jigsaw puzzles, games, Nanoblock, railway scenery, rockets & engines and kites!

DISCOUNTS APPLY TO CBD IN-STORE PURCHASES ONLY. EXCLUDES BOX HILL AND WEB STORES

Let's give the good ol' Swanston Street store a proper sendoff. Pay us a visit soon!

You know what this means... they're acquiring it... COMPULSORARILY! Get Dennis Denuto onto it lads.

Seriously, what a sad day. I've spent a small fortune in that shop over the years. Thanks Metro (and VHC) for supporting the Melbourne modelling community during your CBD tenure.
Cheers,

Hey Rod, thanks for the kind words of support. We're not going anywhere except out of Swanston street. Good ol' Metro Hobbies in Box Hill is still here, and you'll find a few familiar faces here from the CBD. Hope to see you soon!

Very sad to see you guys leaving the city store - it's been very handy to stop in and pick up bits 'n bobs on the way home from work in the evening.

Thanks for sharing, there are many who share the sentiment. Please drop by and have a chat with us, share a yarn or two about the shop. If you're in the eastern suburbs, Metro Hobbies Box Hill will have those bits 'n bobs! Cheers!
