Following a major earthquake, which destroyed over 180 buildings in the central business district the civil defense people closed off a large area of our city, Christchurch.
Included in this area was our local hobby shop Acorn Models.
I called them a couple of weeks after the quake not realizing that they were shut down. I wanted a bottle of of slow setting ca.
The phone was answered by Jan who told me they were operating out of a garage and that they could supply the ca but would have to deliver.
This they did that afternoon. No extra charge, just good old fashioned service.
Today I noticed the door to their store open, I stopped and went in. There was Jan sorting through the goods, putting them back on the display stands, all this in the dark as power hadn't ben restored, but, yes they were open for business.
I want to thank Jan and Gary for the spirit they have shown through this most difficult time and wish them all the best for the future of Acorn Models.
