YORK-HobbyTown USA is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony to launch the opening weekend of its new location in Village Square at Kiln Creek shopping center. Prior to the move, owners Scott and Kelly Dayton had been operating the shop from its former location within Jefferson Crossing Shopping Center in Newport News for the past 16 years.

The couple decided it was time to look for a larger space and moved to A.C. Moore’s former location within the shopping center. The York County location provides an additional 2,300 square feet of space, allowing for more radio-control hobby materials, scale models, and educational materials for science, technology, engineering, and math.

“It is with genuine excitement and great happiness that my wife, Kelly, and son, Michael, and I announce the grand opening of Hobbytown within Village Square,” said Scott Dayton in a prepared statement. “Providing our customers with hobbies and games to continue making memories with their families or explore more ways to spend your time has been and will continue to be our mission. Only now, we have a larger space to build, tinker, and play for the York County community.”

The Daytons own four HobbyTown stores in Virginia and run franchises in Virginia Beach, Richmond, and Fredericksburg in addition to their location on the Peninsula. As well as hobby and STEM merchandise, the chain also specializes in collectibles and toys.

“HobbyTown’s grand opening is just the first in a long lineup of exciting tenant openings at Village Square at Kiln Creek through 2022,” said Mark Pendleton, president of Breeden Realty. “We’re proud to bring the store and its offerings to residents in Yorktown and neighboring areas.”

The ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 3pm on Friday, June 10. Store hours are 10am to 8pm Monday through Friday, 10am to 6pm on Saturday, and noon to 5pm on Sunday. For more information, call 757-890-4515 or visit the store’s website.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
