Gooch's to hold open house this weekend

If there's any such thing as a Winnipeg tradition, then Gooch's Bicycle and Hobby Shop certainly fits the bill! They've been in business since 1927 and has had four generations of the Gooch family running the store.

Veteran model railroaders have seen their shop move from Portage Avenue to Sherbrook Street and back to Portage Avenue again. Their present location is at 1046 Portage Avenue, by Garfield Street. They're now located in what used to be a video store - now there's a business trend that's come and gone! But the demand for bicycles and hobbies supplies goes on and on!

 On December 5th and 6th they're holding their 15th annual open house. There will be lots of displays by local modellers from various hobby groups across the city, including our own Ron Einarson.

Hours are from 10:00 to 5:00 on Saturday, and from 12:00 to 4:00 on Sunday. Call 204-956-6571 for more details or email

Our own Ron Einarson will be sharing his award-winning modelling expertise all this weekend at Gooch's annual open house.
