Valley Hobby grand re-opening

A Prescott Valley hobby shop called Valley Hobby has changed hands, moved, and will be the subject of a grand re-opening on Sunday, Nov. 26.

Tyler Schaefer, a United States Marine Corps combat veteran, bought the store earlier this year and reopened it at a new location in October.

The store was previously in the Safeway shopping center in Prescott Valley for about seven years and before that it was on Valley Road for about 15 years.

It is now located at 6594 E. 2nd Street, Suite C, between American Muscle and Truly Nolen.

The grand re-opening event will have a small radio control car track in the parking lot, a raffle, hot dogs and refreshments for all who participate.

For more information, call the store at 928-775-4071.

Local antique shop closing

Prescott Downtown Antiques will be closing its doors on Thursday, Nov. 30, to start a new chapter of business in Texas.

The store’s owner, Marla Festenese, said she has been grateful for all her customers — and their dogs — over the years.

“A huge hug and thank you to all the great four-legged regulars — Prince, Emily, Jack, Mica, Cody, Rodeo and all the other special visitors,” Festenese said. “You have all been a very special part of my life and will be missed.”
