The Shack to Get Back Into Parts Again?

From the 6/2/11 ARRL Letter:

In the Shack: RadioShack Looking for Suggestions for DIY Parts

Back in the day, RadioShack was the first place many of us looked for parts. QST construction projects routinely referenced RS part numbers, and the Shack even sold 10 and 2 meter transceivers. What goes around comes around, and RadioShack is now looking for input from us, as members of the larger DIY community, on parts we’d like to see them carry. There’s a video explaining what they’re looking for, and a place to add comments.

Now, before you all start complaining that there going to charge double for whatever it is that they will carry–and they probably will charge double for it–consider that you’ll at least be able to get the parts you need when you need them.

    I’m not sure where the comment about “charging twice the amount” comes from. I get parts all the time from the RS store at the shopping center at Stadium and Maple and their prices don’t seem to be out of line.
