The Model Shop was established in 1951 at the Deansgate location.........so it's been there for 62 years! I totally agree with your comment there, there is nothing model shop wise left in Manchester city centre now. It will be very missed, but especially the guys who work there who have become such good friends over the years.

In the past 4-5 years , I've seen model shops close in Wigan , Warrington , Liverpool and Manchester . My local town of St.Helens saw 2 shut down 10 years ago . Now with the demise of Modelzone , that's it , game over COMPLETELY for my area .

Well yesterday we found out modelzone Sunderland has redundancy notice given to all of us .... And apparently it's due the the Bridges shopping centre (mall landlords) management will not allow the shop to pay weekly rent from the administrators for the premises!!! Mmm yet l read my NOTICE TO STAFF details and reads... "In addition, we are proposing to dismiss as redundant all 333 staff employed across each of the comanys stores" under section 2.

I feel for all those facing redundancy - I've gone through it myself on no less than five occasions.

I just commented in another thread similar to this - and it seems that the comradeship and specialist knowledge found in these places is the greater loss.

Websites like this do a great service to help us all as a community with a common interest and it seems that soon, this is all we'll have.

fireflashfive thanks for the info on the age of the Manchester shop.
Now I've worked it out properly I've actually been going in for more than 40 years!!!!
