SHOP HAS NOW CLOSED. UPDATED 30th March 2019

 Former staff have purchased the remaining railway stock from Gee Dee Ltd, which closed the shop doors for the last time on March 30th.

 

 With the consent of the owner they have registered Gee Dee Models Ltd as a new company, which initially will be online with a view to opening a shop in a new location sometime soon.

 

 The retiring owners of Gee Dee wish all concerned all the best in their new venture.

 

 After over 70 years supplying our customers with model and hobby products, the Heathcoat Street shop has now officially closed down

We would like to thank our many loyal customers over the years for their much valued support.

Keep watching for updates to this message.
