Slot Car Corner Canada is Closing Down
Posted by on
Here’s the short version of the story (see «The Long Story» note for the longer and more detailed explanation):
After 10 years, Slot Car Corner Canada will cease its activities once all the inventory is gone. No new stock will be added. It has been fun while it lasted and I’ve made some great friends by selling quality slot car products across this great country but also all around the world.
I’m shutting it down now because I need more time to enjoy the hobby, and other hobbies also. Also, doing business in Canada/Québec for a hobby that is mainly based in Europe and the US has never been easy but it’s getting more difficult each year. Brokerage fees, currency conversion fees, higher shipping costs and people doing everything to avoid paying taxes means that Slot Car Corner Canada can’t compete on equal terms with other slot car dealers.
A growing inventory also means more room to store the products and I have reached the limit of what I can do in my house, even surpassed it. Those are the main reasons that explain why this is the end of the road for Slot Car Corner Canada.
Thank you for being there all those years, you were all great customers.
And don’t be surprised if you get a call or an email one of these days because I’m in your area. I still have that dream of travelling across the country to do some slot car racing with some of you on the great tracks that you built in the last decade. Have fun!
