All good things come to an end. We got the info confirmed over the weekend. Paul and Theresa Scopetski are finally going to call it a day and enjoy their retirement after 50 years in business. At this point everything in the store is on sale at 30 - 60% off.
The shop is about a two hour drive for me. I’ve been making a pilgrimage up there every couple of months for decades. What a fantastic shop. I will miss it, but everybody gets to retire sometime.
Yes, unfortunately all good things must come to an end. Spare Time Shop has been around a long time, but it’s too bad Paul couldn’t find a buyer. C’est la vie.
I’m about 4 hours away from Marlborough, MA, in Syracuse, NY, and I tried to make the pilgrimage once a year or every other year. I’m heading to Rhode Island for Thanksgiving, so I should be able to visit one last time.
Spent many a dollar there since the early 90’s. While not a huge fan of paul I respect what he did for the hobby and wish him a very enjoyable retirement.
