The Groton Hobby Shop is one of the last old-time hobby shops. Located at 129 Main Street in the heart of downtown Groton, the store is open six days a week—Tuesday through Sunday.

Offerings of the Groton Hobby Shop include: Magic the Gathering® gaming, role-play and board games including Dungeons and Dragons®, a large assortment of doll house miniature items, Lionel trains, MTH trains, Bachmann trains (as well as other manufacturers of O, HO, and N-scale trains), model rockets and their accessories, one of the largest selections of plastic models in the area, model paints and glues from Testors®, Model Masters®, and even paints and other models from WarHammer®. Is that not enough? Then check out the coin collecting accessories and the limited selection of remote control items and novelty toys as well. There is something for everyone here!   There are even some remote control boats in stock and ready for you to have fun with.

Speaking of Lionel trains, a new window display is going up soon featuring a working O gauge Lionel layout. The shop is a Lionel Value Added Dealer which means that we have items that other stores cannot get. There’s a large selection of free catalogs—come on in and relive your childhood perusing the offerings!

Every Friday night, the Groton Hobby Shop offers Friday Night Magic®, a gaming event that is sanctioned by Wizards of the Coast. The event starts at 7pm and generally runs until around 11pm. Being a sanctioned store, prizes and other promotional cards are available for your Magic the Gathering® experience that most stores cannot get. We also offer free pizza from Groton’s Main Street Pizzeria, cookies, chips, and beverages at no cost during Friday Night Magic®.

The Groton Hobby Shop is open Tues-Saturday from 11am to 7pm. Friday nights, they are open until 11pm and on Sunday from Noon-5pm. Find the Groton Hobby Shop on Facebook to be kept alert to specials, events, and new products.
