There was a Radio Shack about one block away down on the corner from my house. See pic below. Once and a while I walked there to pick up a cap, resistor or a battery. etc. and it had been there forever. I noticed this weekend while driving by the signs are now gone, the windows were papered up and two big dumpsters are out in front of it. Anyway, its not surprising, but it was really convenient having it there. Ever since the Circuit City's and Best Buys came on the scene Radio Shack has been slowly dying.
