Radio Shack
« on: March 07, 2015, 02:52:50 PM »
Just a heads up, Radio Shack will be out of business by the end of the month. I've been by a couple times to pick up a few electrical tools and supplies while they last, 60-70% off.

Radio Shack's problem is they didn't change with the new technology. Which is kind of ironic with them being a techy store. With the ease of internet shopping now they didn't stand a chance.

I might stop in and see if they have anything left for soldering and electrical supplies.  Not holding my breath, each time I needed stuff they seem to have less and less.

That's too bad...I don't go there often, but have bought plenty over the years. They had some oddball stuff that most stores don't carry.

I'm sure many of you know about it, but in case you don't and have never been, this place in Needham is like Radio Shack on steroids http://www.youdoitelectronics.com/
Please spread the word to all local Jeepers!!

I've been to RS more times this month then all the other times combined.
Picked up 10' split cable tubing to finish off my current engine bay project.
Nice hands free LED head lamp
3' weather resistant LED strip for my 6 project
40' 12g AWM wire
Couple tubes of heat sink paste
Silicone grease
The head lamp was 60% off, everything else was 70-80% off.

i went to the 2 nearest stores to me today.  neither of them had any sales.  also, their shelves were fully stocked.  i'll have to check back later as i know that they were closing stores in waves.

There may be a limited amount of stored opened because their franchised.

You know those double cabinets with the slide out doors they keep all the small parts in like diodes and such I bought 2 of those for my shop, their selling all the fixtures as well.
Their at 70-90% off on everything and will drop the prices again this Thursday.
