I remember a Radio Shack from decades ago also, and back then, it was a cool place to go. There were no RC toys, no cell phones, just interesting (for the time) electronics. Those new fangled triacs were over there on that wall and the LEDs were individually packaged on the racks. It was a place that sponsored electronic hobby clubs meetings and had enclosures that we could open up and see if the parts would fit. The guy that owned it was a ham radio operator and had some of his more obscure contact cards on display. A couple of us nurds, although we didn't know we were nurds then, would prowl for a hour gathering up just the right set of parts to make a nixie tube that we stole from a discarded stereo work.
Please don't abbreviate Radio Shack to "RS".
IMO Radio Shack lives on the ignorance of multitudes while we who know better are a small minority.
Got mine through Amazon for $27.50 shipped.
