I was under the impression that Brookhurst had gone out of business. Was this a mistake on my part or is the Brookhurst I ran across this morning by mistake a new incarnation? If it is, is it under new management?

Seems to be doing OK

I get monthly emails. Still going strong!

Never heard that they left.

I visited the shop a few times this summer, still there.

Larry Huber, the great Brookhurst Hobbies guy I'd see at conventions, retired or left Brookhurst a few years ago; maybe that's what you heard.

They seem to be a bit lost with Larry gone, management can't seem to make up their mind.

I was there last saturday and bought stuff.

Certain pages on their website are quite freaky. The Peter Pig AWI line refuses to load sometimes.

Also, their response to emails is nonexistent.

It's an awesome store – just wish they'd get the kinks worked out.

Ordered several times in LH's day, and had wonderful, timely, courteous service, mostly 15s and a few 20mm lines. More recently, I visited and thought the store was a hot mess, and bought nothing. Post-LH communications have also been frustrating, to put it mildly. After a couple of misfires, I moved on. I wish them well just the same.

Several years ago, I was onsite looking for some 20mm figures. Almost all of the 20mm were stored in the attic. Larry asked me what I wanted and when I told him I didn't really know and could he bring them down. He smiled and allowed me access to the attic storage area. There were around 5 – six foot metal shelves filled with boxes of 20mm. I spent a good hour and could have done more.

Glad to hear they are still around and that Larry could retire.

If the same guys who were in charge after Larry Huber left are still there and their idea of service remains the same I'll send my orders elsewhere.

I was there yesterday and bought stuff. Organized service is not a specialty of theirs, but if you know what you need/want you have a decent chance of finding it.

Since Brookhurst is in California and I live in Louisiana I don't think I'll be dropping by any time soon. I was referring to their mail-order service which, after Larry Huber left, took a nose-dive. It got so bad that I gave up on them entirely and I don't think I was the only fairly regular mail-order customer to do so.
