Waterlooville Model Centre, which has been established in Waterlooville for as long as I can remember … is closing at in June this year on expiry of the lease.
I am sad to see this type of shop close – the owner is knowledgeable, supports local groups and the shop is a break from the homogenised high street we have today.
My suspicions were aroused earlier this year when the sign-age blew down in the gales and was not replaced.
As Waterlooville Model Centre enters it’s twilight years – do take look around and pick up an Aixfix Model if only for old times sake.
So what will become of this retail unit … will it become another charity shop (hasn’t Waterlooville got a full complement today) or perhaps another small startup?
