Such a shame to see them go. I guess on line purchasing is killing them. Best Buy is next !

Also, people love shopping from their recliner chair and not having to,go,out to a store. Malls are closing all over America now, 200 this year!

Besides the trend towards on-line shopping, my personal experiences at RS suggests that the following contributed to their demise:
1. Poor sales staff training.
2. Limited product selection, unless you wanted a new cellphone.
3. Empty product racks.

I remember pre R/S days going to the drugstore to test your radio tubes.......way back in the 50's.

Jim, thanks for the memories…

I can still remember the smell of dust burning off the tubes as they were tested.
