What a great question. Hell yes to answer. There were several in this area. The one I miss most was a small local chain, I think 3 or 4 stores, was called Hungates. Loved going in there and always found something I needed or had to have. But when I was a kid of 11 or 12, I would order model kits. Mostly Revell, and I think directly from them. Sure had a lot of fun building, then destroying most of them.
