What other store can you walk into and find HALF of this stuff? Obviously nothing will compare to the endless warehouse space of online stores, but even Radio Shacks located in mall still have four sets of parts drawers and at least a wall's worth of tools, connectors, enclosures, and parts. They're certainly supporting the "tinkering" community more than any other national retail chain.
