BREMEN -- The hobby store has some not-so-new owners. Bremen Hobbies has been bought by the son of former owners Martha and Dale Heuberger, Andy- and his wife Theresa.
With the purchase, the new owners have a few changes in mind for the store. New products and an increased line are all part of the plan, just as soon as they clearance out all of the old products. Cake decorating supplies, crafting supplies and art supplies will all be gone from the store soon, to make way for even more model trains, cars and airplace sets, which is the store's biggest market.
Bremen Hobbies opened in 1961, out of Dale Heuberger's home dog grooming shop. The hobby store was in the basement. As the hobby store became more popular, less pet supplies were sold and more hobby were sold and the store morphed itself into a hobby shop. An avid model marker himself, many of Heuberger's own models are on display throughout the store.
