We've never done this before but we thought we would give it a try.  Starting today through July 4th we are offering an ADDITIONAL 10% OFF all web purchases when you use the Promo Code: summer


That's an additional 10% off of everything in the web store on top of our already discounted prices!  As always you also get FREE SHIPPING any time you spend $150 or more and ship to the lower 48 states.  


We hope you can give us a try and find what you're looking for to keep your summer railroading rolling.


In order to get the additional 10% savings you MUST enter the promo code.  You must also select FREE SHIPPING to apply that discount as well.  This offer is valid ONLY in our Web Store at www.aaronscitytrains.com  We will not be offering the discount for any phone orders or in store purchases.

That sounds good, I'll check out the sale section.  Hope you can add some additional MTH locomotives to the sale selections.


Aaron, I have to say your hobby shop gets 4-stars!  I bought two MTH ready to run sets from you guys right before Christmas that were severely harpooned by UPS, you guys exchanged the sets without having to wait for the claim process.  The team that takes the phone orders was very pleasant

and patient.

Thanks so much for sharing your story.  I remember that UPS disaster.  Just glad we could get you the sets in time.


All of our stock is always on sale.  We generally discount between 7%-13% off of the MSRP so don't just look in the "SALE" section of the sight.  This 10% discount will be on top of the discounts we already offer on everything.  Hope we can service you again soon.

Just a reminder to all you O Gauge lovers that today and tomorrow are the last two days to take advantage of everything in our store being an ADDITIONAL 10% off of our already discounted prices. You can combine this promo with our always FREE SHIPPING offer for any sale over $150. The promo code is: summer


 You must enter the promo code at checkout to get the additional discount and select FREE SHIPPING As your shipping choice.  


Pease take advantage of this as we rarely do these types of promotions and I think you will find that we already have really good prices and tons to choose from.  


I hope we can service all of your needs.

I was going to stop by recently, but your store is only open 10 hours, two days a week right now. I have to admit that that really bothers me. Sorry, but I'm not going to go out of my way to patronize your store when Stockyard Express is open everyday. I have tried to spread my purchases between your store, Stockyard, and Mercer Jct. but if you are going to run a mostly web based business then you will be competing on price alone. There is no value add if I can't get in the store.

Sorry to hear about that and I totally understand. It's unfortunate but in our local market of Akron we simply don't have the foot traffic to the store during the summer to support being open any more hours in the summer. We simply lose money.  So while I sympathize with you we have no other choice during these summer months or we would have to close our doors forever.  Hopefully when we get to September and we resume our normal hours we will be able to service you in person in a way that is beneficial to you.  Thanks for your patronage.
Thanks so much. Just saw your order. Thrilled they will ship to you for free as well! Hope you love them and let us know if we can do anything else for you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Happy Independence Day to the forum members!  


Its the last day to take advantage of our incredible pricing and FREE SHIPPING. Just visit www.aaronscitytrains.com and use promo code: summer


You'll get an extra 10% off of our already greatly reduced prices plus if you spend over $150 you always get FREE SHIPPING!  


Everything in the store qualifies for the discount. Nothing is excluded. 


Thanks to Bob and Chuck for their orders this morning!  You guys rock!


Happy shopping and have a safe and joyous 4th of July!


Thank you,


There is a fishing tackle store in Akron, Ohio called Land Big Fish. It is located at 3333 Manchester Rd. Akron, Ohio. Great place to buy fishing lures. How close are you to them? I was thinking maybe some day I would like to visit this fishing tackle store and after I'm done there, I would stop at your store. 

Hi Jim,


We are only 12 minutes away from there. We'd lovve to have you visit so let us know when you are coming to town. Another thing to do in Akron would be to catch the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad from the Northside Station. It's a terrific ride through the valley and stopping of in Penninsula is a great idea. 


Hope to see you here in Akron soon. 


Take care,


Hi Craig,


I'm pretty certain the red presidential set is sealed in the box but the guys are in the shop tomorrow and we can confirm. We will extend the 10% discount one additional day tomorrow so once we know for sure if you decide to buy it online you can still use the promo code: summer to get the added discount. 




thanks, for the extension


Have a New In Box, question as well !!

can now go about getting some outside of work items accomplished,


Hope everyone had an amazing Fourth!  


Due to popular demand and some customer questions we have decided to extend our Summer Savings Deal one more day.  Now through the end of the day we will continue to offer an additional 10% off of everything in our on-line store. That's on top of the already every day discounted prices. You also get FREE SHIPPING on any order over $150. This will be the last day we do this so please take advantage. 


Craig, Bill replied to you today to let you know the Presidential Set is factory sealed.  


Thanks again to everyone for their patronage. 


Take care,


Aaron, maybe next year if you have a 10% sale, give a the 10% discount to everyone regardless if they are ordering online, standing in your store or talking to you on the phone. That way, you can do away with the promo code. This way all of your customers are treated the same.

Oh yes for sure. We had never done this before so I wasn't sure if we'd be able to handle it in person or on the phone with our point of sale system but we are now ready for it so next time it will be able to be executed very way possible. Thanks.

Thank you Aaron for your sale.  I picked up the Pennsy GG1 blow out at an even better price with free shipping.  I look forward to it arriving Tuesday afternoon.  Ed G

Crap!!  Missed it.  See what having three daughters playing tournament softball will do to a fella!!! Oh well.
