Welcome to Green River Hobbies

Open for In-Store, Pick-up, Curbside & By Appointment

Scout says… “Christmas is coming and it’s time for train sets.  I’m ready and waiting for all my friends to visit with biscuits.  I even have a face mask to wear if Mom can figure out a way to keep it on my nose.”  

Updated November 17, 2020 – As Illinois rolls back to Phase III – We are still open and allowed to have customers within the store with certain restrictions.  Because of space restrictions we are limited to 3 people in the store at any one time so we ask that you call ahead and schedule an appointment if at all possible.  The capacity sign is back on the front door – if it is turned to No Entry – please wait in your car and give us a call and we’ll let you know when we can allow you in.  Other Illinois guidelines to keep in mind:

  • Face masks are required. Scout will insist – if he has to wear one – everybody does. (available for purchase at cost if you don’t have your own)
  • Hand sanitizer is provided at the door.
  • 1-person per aisle and social distancing is requested.

For those of you wishing to keep your social distance – Curbside pickup is still available; we also have a pick-up window available off our parking lot.  Contact us via phone during business hours or email to place an order, and we will schedule a time for pickup (Please provide your contact information so we can confirm your order).

To help with your curbside shopping we have placed lists of our more popular inventory items on our website under the Products dropdown.  It is still a work-in-progress but you can check the lists for item descriptions, model numbers and availability.  Please send us an email or give us a call to confirm availability and place your order.  We are always happy to ship orders – we are noticing delivery date estimates from our shippers are slowly becoming longer and longer the closer we get to the holidays – please shop early so we can get you everything you need for the holidays.
