Welcome to Kapiti Hobbies!
Welcome to the new year!
We will continue to try to bring you a great range hobby products from around the world, there are still challenges in the stock situation.
Mercifully GW has come back online but are still experiencing many out of stocks, obviously affecting what we can get from them for you! Due to ongoing difficult stock situation GW is experiencing, in terms of increased demand on top of greater shipping difficulties, and into that mix now Xmas freight issues, they have capped new releases to one of each item per retailer for launch date. The idea being that all stores should get one of each that way. Restocks on subsequent weeks will vary dependant on stock availability at GW.
General restocks are coming through each week, but there are often out of stocks when we try and order.
Army Painter and Warlord Games ... Army Painter are still operating from a normal stock range but there are out of stocks from time to time... Warlord are still operating from a reduced stock range in general, although new releases are still coming through it seems.
Vallejo ... we are still awaiting a significant restock order to arrive at some point, last we heard their shipping container had been delayed in Singapore by a month… all I can say as, as soon as we are able we’ll be ordering up and will have a large outstanding backorder hopefully completed too …sadly still no specific ETA…
Northstar in UK are dealing with us again. However it may be a while before we put a restock order in as we have a significant stock of Perry plastics to sell through first.
Gamersgrass and Greenstuff World appear to be operating normally now and orders are coming through.
Our Aussie connections Aetherworks and The Combat Companyare operating but again stock situation is patchy
Please note increases in shipping costs from overseas suppliers like Northstar, Greenstuff Word, Aetherworks, TCC etc have meant we’ve had to disable the “buy while out of stock via ‘Pre-order’ feature“ as we cant predict whether new stock will be arriving and selling at previous retail prices.
If you have any queries or concerns about stock levels or orders placed that have yet to be fulfilled, please drop us a line and I'll get back to you as soon as I am able.
Thank you, from everyone at Kapiti Hobbies and ParaparaumuBeach Pharmacy, the team is here and ready to help you!
We hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Probably the best range of hobby stock under one roof in the Wellington Region! And if we don't have it in stock we can probably order it in.

All have various criteria for order placement, so advise us of your requirements and we will see what we can do for you.
INVENTORY: At the start of 2020, we were able to synch our store inventory to our website. We have also enabled products to continue to be purchased as they go out of stock, by enabling a 'pre-order' setting in such a case, thus you can still place your order and we can order in the stock to fulfill it. If for some reason we are unable, eg. if product is now discontinued or long term out of stock with supplier, we will refund the purchase. As with any such stock control arrangement, it is rarely 'perfect', so if you absolutely need to confirm something is in stock before ordering, just drop us a line first.
Pricing, Loyalty and Deals:
Our website pricing will typically reflect manufacturers RRP.
We do have our in-store Loyalty Scheme, for our customers. For every $75 spend, you will be rewarded with a $5 voucher off your next purchase. This is also applied manually to website orders, where virtual vouchers will be emailed back to qualifying customers.
We also offer our "Games Workshop" Club, for every $100 of Price Matched product , we issue a $5 voucher.
We will also offer to PRICE MATCH other New Zealand based competitors price, at our discretion, but such price matching would NOT routinely qualify you for Loyalty spend too!
SHIPPING COST CHANGES
Dear, all this is to advise that our Economy parcel carrier (Castle Parcels - part of Post Haste) has decided to add an extra delivery tariff for delivery to Residential zoned addresses. The extra amount is $2.50 .
This charge can be avoided by having your parcels delivered to a work/commercial address.
For those of you in Lower North Island, (Palmy and southwards to Wello.) if you still want your parcel delivered to your home address, you will find CourierPost is the cheaper option and a better service too.
So please double check your shipping selection when you make it.
Thanks for listening!
You can also find a selected range of pharmacy items, from our main store, in the Pharmacy Collection in the Catalog.
Where a products inventory level states “Pre-Order”… this means the item is currently out of stock, but allows you to still purchase the item and we will order it in for you. This will typically apply to either up and coming New releases, or just regular out of stock items that will be restocked shortly.
If you have any concerns about our stock levels, or have a query about a products availability, just drop us a line, any time and we’ll et back to you ASAP. Thanks!
