I wish. The neartest one is about 700 miles away. I went to one in California once. Cool place. Maybe if RS does fold, Fry's will expand to fill the gap here on the east coast.
But as it stands, RS is pretty much my only local source for components unless, and I have several very convenient locations around me.
The independent places, like Williams Electronics, where I used buy my telcom supplies, have all gone, too.
