Preparations are underway with the retailer to hold the first of several events celebrating two decades of trade, and a new product is to be revealed.
Kernow Model Rail Centre (KMRC) is to hold several events to celebrate its 20th year of business. Its first will also mark the third anniversary of the opening of its Guildford Branch with a special in-store event on Friday 29, April.
The Guildford branch opened on May 1, 2019 (read story here) and was chosen as a location as being familiar to KMRC, following the then regular exhibition attendances in the area, and noting there was a lack of dedicated model shops in the locality.
The event at the Guildford store on Friday April 29 will include a new exclusive product announcement, a range of special offers available only to those that attend on the day and sneak previews of a number of not yet announced forthcoming releases.

Visitors will be able to meet members of the Guildford branch team and have the opportunity to speak with Chris Trerise, Managing Director and Graham Muspratt, Development Manager. KMRC's team member Simon Paley will also be on hand to sign copies of his book: Colour Light Signalling for Model Railways.
Chris Trerise, Managing Director, said, “As the Kernow Model Rail Centre enters its 20th year of business we felt it would be good to start our celebrations with this event at the Guildford branch that also marks the anniversary of the first expansion of the business. We've since expanded even further with the opening of our dedicated mail order warehouse in 2021.”
Chris added, “We will be having further events and special offers throughout the year to mark our 20th year milestone, so keep an eye on our website and social media channels to find out more.”
The Guildford store is located at: 75b Stoke Road, Guildford, GU1 4HT and is open between 9.30 and 17.00.
