Wasn't sure if this should go here in General or maybe in Props but just saw an article that lists 75 California Radio Shacks that are closing and wanted to bring it to the attention of fellow California DIYers. Been to a couple of them for parts and kits for halloween projects and will say I will miss the convenience of running into a store to pick up a project box or such. Bay Area looks pretty hard hit by the closures. We have a few Fry's Electronics in the Bay area but not as many and not as convenient. Sad to see this.

Here's a link to the Business Insider article with the list of stores across the country that are closing:

These closures represent 36% of their chain stores. All on the list will be gone by April 1. Close out sales should be happening now.

Here in Canada they all left the franchise and changed their name due to an inflated "fee" to use the Radio Shack name. They became "The Source" but sadly their numbers are dwindling. There's only one left in my area now. I rely on them for parts and components involved in recording and processing my music, and the odd electronic gadget for the home. I hope we don't lose the only one we've got left.
