Fun Times Hobby & Cycle’s Retail Store is closing!!!


Yellow Pages made negligent errors in our ads in the 2013 directory and on their site. The mistakes cost our business in excess of $300,000.00 in lost sales due to customers not being able to find us because we were virtually invisible. Yellow Pages admits it was their error but takes no responsibility whatsoever for their errors. The lost sales resulted in us being forced to close our Red Deer store in August 2013 and downsize to our Lacombe location. The loss of cash flow has finally taken its toll and we will be closing our retail store January 2015. This is the third set of errors Yellow Pages has made. First in 2006 when we opened in Olds they listed us in Airdrie, in 2009 when we moved to Red Deer they made another error on their site making us invisible for anyone looking for us on mobile devices. The combined lost sales in 2006 and 2009 were in excess of $200,000.00

Sadly we simply can not afford to operate any longer. As the lost sales resulted in lost profit to reinvest in stock and keep staff, as well as the stress has caused me and Lavonne many health issues due to the stress. We opened first in 1984 in BC and will miss our many customers.

I will be going to work for Red Deer Toyota as a product advisor. If you are in the market for a new or used vehicle be sure to come see me. I would love to be able to help you find the perfect vehicle at the right price.

Our Name Fun Times says it all we are all about FUN!! We specialize in model trains, hobby supplies, bicycles, bicycle parts and service. We are a family owned operation.  We are always here to answer any questions you may have about our company or our services. You will not find any snob attitudes as we realize that people have different levels of interest in hobbies and cycling. We welcome families and kids though we do ask parents keep an eye on their children so our displays are not damaged.

So when the weather gets too miserable to go outside we have lots of fun things you can do inside. Model Railroading is a great Father/Son or family hobby. It is educational as you learn history, geography, geology, botany, electrical, engineering and many other things. Kids will learn even a lot without even realizing it.

We also have a lot of models in various skill levels you can build. From Cars, to rockets, tanks to planes we have a wide variety.

When the weather is good we have bikes to help you keep fit. Cycling is a great way to stay in ship not to mention lower your transportation costs. You get 500+ miles to the gallon. Just kidding! But you will save gas, vehicle wear and tear, and it is good for the environment too.

Gordon the Proprietor has over 35 years experience as a bicycle mechanic and over 40 years as a model railroader and model builder. He has built over 40 model railroad displays on various scale and sizes. Jason is an avid N scale model railroader with many years experience.

Whether you need Model Trains, Model Kits, Other hobby Supplies, or Bicycles, Bicycle Repairs and Parts, we have what you need at prices you can afford. At Fun Times Hobby & Cycle, our goal is to provide you with friendly, professional service of the highest caliber without breaking your piggy bank.
