IMPORTANT TARIFF IMPACT NOTICE
On September 1, 2019, the US will impose a 10% tariff on Chinese imports which will affect Bandit’s Hobbies Limited & Bandit’s Model Trains products arriving on or after September 1, 2019. Unfortunately, our suppliers cannot absorb the entire cost increase and we expect them to raise prices on items we will be receiving after September 1, 2019. We anticipate that the price increase due to the tariff will be in the 5% range, but that may vary slightly depending the manufacturer. Customers with items currently on backorder that will shipped after September 1, 2019 will be subject to the added tariff cost. If you have any questions, please call us at 843-393-3333.
THE BANDIT NEWS FLASH:
Bandit's Hobbies would like to thank all of our loyal friends and customers for their business and continued support over the last 28 years. Our business has been built on our reputation of providing competitive value, friendly service and customer satisfaction. Our internet presence today utilizes those same principles that were the foundation for the success for our "brick & mortar" shop. Our online business plan is working well as we have gained over 2400 new internet customers since the January of 2015.
Our relocation in 2014 has allowed us to downsized and become more specialized. Departments that in the past had taken up floor space without generating much revenue, have been eliminated. Our primary focus is now directed towards Model Railroading, Plastic Models and surface R/C Vehicles. Items necessary to support our new focus such as batteries, battery chargers, parts, paints, decals, layout & model building accessories, scenery, etc. are now in stock. We will always keep the option open to add new product lines depending on customer interest and demand.
