(12-07-2010) After reading all the previous reviews, I can only surmise that most were written by the owner(s) or employees. They certainly don't sound like honest opinions but rather poor attempts at writing advertisements. Other than that, they must be old, VERY OLD! Some time ago, D&J was a great hobby store, but that period has come and gone. I've heard that they are under new ownership and have been for a few years now which makes sense watching them go down hill over the same time-frame. Specifically, the employees are clueless and uncaring, and the stock seems like your in a Dollar Store with junk that was dis-continued from suppliers.

this place has everything from obsessive model building supplies to extreme crafters. It is overwhelming how much they have, and I did get a little lost with option anxiety. The guys there were super knowledgeable and helpful.

These guys are kinda weird, but they know their stuff. You need a specialty item, this is the go-to place. I am building a fabulous Halloween costume, and this place had not only what I needed, but more extravagent items to take it to

My boyfriend and I love playing board games. There are only a few places to go around here that have the wide selection of games we're looking for. While scoping out the local comic shops, we asked if there were any places to go for games and someone recommended D&J. We were amazed when we walked in the door. Their selection is outstanding (and i'm not just talking about board games). Every time we have gone there the employees have been really helpful and have even helped by looking up a game to see if they could get it for me. We have and will continue to recommend this store to our friends.

Pros: great selection, good parking, good location

I loved the store the minute I walked in, but as soon as i found what I was looking for, an announcement came over the loud speaker stateing they were closed. No one asked me if I needed help, so I asked an older guy and he was rude about it. I asked if I was the last person in the store and he said "Yes and they won't wait for long," and walked away. He was very rude! I had no idea the store closed at 6:00 pm in the evening. Most working parents are just getting out of work . Not a good impression at all!!!!

The first time you walk into D&J Hobby, it's almost overwhelming because they seem to have endless aisles of every hobby, craft, and toy item you can imagine. Once you wander around, you realize what a resource this store is. We've shopped there for everything from Perler beads to Yugioh cards, for D&D manuals to puzzles. This place should be your first stop for any hobby related need.

The first time my son walked in to D & J he said "This is the place for me!" They have everything including Thomas trains, trading card games, slot cars, electric trains, science kits, model railroad supplies and more! The only negative is that some items are a bit pricey. This is also a great place for adult hobbyists and crafters. They have a great, helpful staff. If you or your kids are looking for some fun, this is the place to go.

Have been to this store many times, and I like the collection they have. The older guys (late forties and above) seems to have a very rude nature. They are very impolite in answering questions and tend to discriminate you based on your skin color. They simply profile you based on your skin and behave rudely, as I have seen them talk very politely with people of their type.

They constantly watch you as if you are some shoplifter or something. And once you leave the store they come running behind to the parking lot asking for your receipt. When asked why they discriminate; they claim, they do this with everyone even though I saw him standing behind the register and did not ask a single white for their receipts for the 30 minutes I was in the store picking up things. What do you call this?

Given the nature of the job they are doing, they should have that reaction, I guess. At this age, if this is all they do, they've to have a big 'L' tattoed on their forehead.

Got a present for my best friend there and the service was a huge part of making this Christmas gift one of the best I've given. The team at the Radio Control counter made sure that I had everything needed to get this buddy going with an R/C helicopter. He's thrilled with the 'copter and I'm sure we'll both be going back for more.

BTW, their price was $20 less than one of the mega-hobby stores on the web and I got first hand help on much needed accessories and how to get started (over about a 30 min visit).

Thank god for D&J Hobby's. There are many places like it around and with my husband's and son's love for toy trains, they make life wonderful. They are always very helpful and almost always have what we need in stock and even what we don't need.
Their toy train selection including train parts is excellent as well as craft supplies. It's a hobbiests' dream come true.

I remember growing up near D & J and how much fun it was to go down there and just look. Now since I have kids they enjoy the trip as well. They have everything for the hobbyist in you. RC's, trains, boats and airplane kits you can build from scratch to the scrapbooker in you. I have always enjoyed D & J's.

Whenever there is a school project to build, we head right over to D and J Hobby, they literally have every craft item you can think of. We can rely on them to have all the crafty items we need for any project. Additionally they have a unique selection of dolls that are very reasonable.

This store has been a favorite ever since I was a young adult and interested in doll house making. I always wanted to dream away the hours playing in one. I did one year make my little girl her very own dollhouse.

PROS:
CONS: models, doll houses

This is the best store for all of your crafting needs. Adhesives, paint, floral, beading, you name it. Oh, and they?re great for trains, planes and all kinds of models. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. It?s comforting to know that D&J is still around giving great service with a great selection.

D & J has some of the bizarrest combinations of supplies i've ever seen in a single store. There are few other places where you can find artificial leaves and airplane models gracing the same shelves. Pretty much a one shop stop for all things hobby related. I personally like coming here because there's a great selection and it's a good place to scope out new hobbies before really diving in.

I have 3 boys, so finding a place to see and buy trains is a must! D&J Hobby has a wonderful selection of trains of all types. My husband and boys both find plenty to ogle at. The store does a good job of organizing the merchandise and the staff are knowlegeable and friendly.

This is the best store to find everything you'll need in one place. They don't necessarily have the best deals, but because they have such a huge inventory, it can save you a ton of time driving from one store to another. You can find cool gift ideas here. They have childrens kits - which are perfect for school vacations or birthday parties.

D & J Hobby and Crafts has absolutely everything one could need to complete any toy model or craft. I recommend this craft store to anyone who needs materials, however, be warned that their customer service isn't the best and most of the staff there doesn't know much about the inventory.

DJ's has every detail you can think of when it comes to your hobby. There are dolls, knitting, models of every plane, car or automobiles you can think of. They are more likely to have what you need than not and if they don't have it, they'll be sure to tell you where you might be able to find it.

Personally we go here for the board games. They have a ton of games you would never have heard of before, but are great. It seems that their staff has also played everyone of those games as well. They are well knowledgeable and easy to approach.

Highly recommend D & J's for their staff, selection and stock. Their prices are a bit high, but I'd rather go to one store to buy what I need than 10 just to find the best price.
