The business was founded in 1969 by Al Kimbrough as a small engine repair shop. He gradually expanded it to include sales and service of chain saws, outboards, lawn mowers and small engines.
In 1977 Charles Kimbrough retired from the navy and came into the business. In 1978 we introduced computers into our operation for inventory control. Then in 1983 we formed the computer division to sell and service computers and accessories.
In 1988 Al died and Charles continued the business. 1992 marked a new direction for Al's Repair Inc. With the formation of the A & E Railroad, a division of Al's Repair. The new division was to be a special order model train store only. That didn't last very long. We are now a full line hobby store.
In 2013 we branched out again by obtaining our FFL (federal firearms license). Since we have phased out all lawn & garden and chainsaws, there was room for expantion.
