Rider’s Hobby Shops have been providing hobbyists with great selection and great service for over 40 years!  Every member of the Rider’s team is a hobby enthusiast.  Because we are as passionate about our hobbies as you are, we always strive to deliver outstanding customer service.  Our knowledge of, and passion for, hobbies, along with our expert service and unmatched selection is what makes Rider’s “the better hobby people”.

We opened our Flint store in 1977.  For 20 years we were on Corunna Road, before doubling our size to 6,000 square feet in a 1997 move to the Lin Cor Plaza on Linden Road.  We opened our Grand Rapids store 1987, doubling the size of our 28th Street location to 7,500 square feet in 2002.  With our million dollar plus inventory at each location, we are mid-Michigan’s largest hobby shops.

Rider’s Hobby Shops are your one-stop source for all things hobby related. We carry a broad range of hobby projects, tools, and accessories. Whether you are an avid Radio Control enthusiast, Model Railroader, Model Builder, Model Rocket enthusiast, Gamer, or anything in between, Rider’s has the hobby supplies you want.
