At least you have a Radio Shack around. I believe they have all closed down up here except for one in Owatonna, about 75 miles away. You could always go the online ordering route.

I get most of my stuff from Digikey.

Typical Radio Shack doofus probably did not have any idea what you were talking about.

Used to drive me nuts when I could walk in Radio Shack and know more about their stuff than the employee did but the employee would insist on helping me. But just be thankful you still have a Radio Shack bear by.

Radio Shack's website usually has a stock status on items in store, at least last time I bought something from them, but that was a while ago....
