An enthusiastic R/C modeler, Bruce Holecek, founded Tower Hobbies in 1971 with only $800 and a dream. In just a few short years, his dream evolved into the world’s most respected, most popular mail-order hobby company!
Tower Hobbies’ reputation as the world’s best hobby store holds true forty years later. Today, the company has over 300,000 loyal customers, and the number continues to grow each day! Mr. Holecek’s dedication to providing first-class service and affordable prices is a testament to the company’s lasting success.
Over the past four decades, Tower Hobbies revolutionized the hobby industry in many exciting ways. One early innovation (toll-free “800” telephone lines) made it possible to reach more customers. Tower Hobbies’ annual catalogs, another key innovation, function as sales tools and as valuable sources of information.
In 1994, Tower Hobbies revolutionized the industry once again, becoming the first hobby company to have its own web site. Upon launch, TowerHobbies.com was an instant hit with customers, who helped make it the winner of the prestigious BizRate Circle of Excellence Award ten years in a row.
