  • I don't recall a time that I went, probably no more than 10 at 2 stores in Houston, that I was not annoyed by the group of people behind the counter with no regard for my wait much less the 1 to 3 actually working a cash register. The almost acted as though I was an inconvenience to them. Add to that, the paranoid scrutiny as I enter and exit the store. On the floor, it was pretty much vacant of employees. They seemed to gather near registers registers and preoccupied with each other or some less than apparent task more than customers. Micro Center, EPO, and other stores for me!

  • I worked for Radio Shack from 1979 to 1991. I worked in almost every mall in my city at some point. A whole generation IS missing out on an important part of culture. Actually interacting with product before buying it, getting clothing advice from store staff, eating what was often surprisingly good mall food, being able to make a day of browsing a new mall. Several of my friends even met the girls they later married at malls. Letting malls and mall culture die will be seen as a major step in the fall of our civilization.

  • Big box stores and online shopping have virtually wiped out electronics stores. The primary exception is Micro Center that is located near colleges and universities. Best Buy box stores are on their way out because it's all throw away or cloud software products. When Radio Shack went from selling quality electronics and parts and equipment to cheap import flashy things they went bye bye.

  • I used to get 3D printing filament at the Fry's here in Indy. It was a great place to go, the prices were better than online and they always had different material and color types avaliable. After Covid the shelves started to go empty, it was clear they were gearing up for the closing before they announced it. I could also find odd video game accessories that you wouldn't find at Gamestop or Walmart. When I was a kid I would GBA and DS games there too. Man, I'm gonna miss em.

  • They have all gone in the uk Maplin Electronics closed 2 years ago I can remember back in 80s Tandy Stores (Radio Shack) in the uk and they went in the 90s and pc world have reduced it's stores so are they next ? It is a specialized market and some over expanded the number of stores and over diversified into selling other items like drones and mobile phones but it did not work

  • I think you missed one of my mall favorites-Victora's Secret. Don't believe they are still around, or maybe they are getting ready to be booted. A mall without one of these can't be called a mall. The purpose of today's malls is to give pretty, young things a place to show off their beauty and outfits that almost cover their bodies. Gee, I love going to the mall.

  • I really miss Radio Shack which was Tandy’s here in UK, as a kid I used to Save up my Pocket Money to buy as much as I could afford in Tandy’s think first thing I bought was an Airband Radio and electronics 200 in one kit and Radio Scanner with UK Radio Scanning Directory, electronics kit helped me learn electronics, and I used to buy all my electronic components and electronic booklets from Tandy’s and Radio Shack batteries, I loved Tandy’s so much that when our family went to USA for a Holiday my first thought after recovering from jet lag, was where is the Nearest Radio Shack except my parents wouldn’t let me go to one, when I was older I even tried to get a Job at Tandy’s except it was that time when they went out of business at least here in UK then I used to Shop at Maplins for my electronics till they also went out of business here in UK, I used to love a Science Fiction action drama show here in UK called BUGS that used to have gadgets some made up but some of props come from things I remember seeing in Tandy’s catalogues and in one episode of Bugs Season 4 Girl Power they were hiding name of shop but I could tell it was Tandy’s in that episode girl who is electronics genius is being chased and hides Artefact inside a Speaker in Tandy store with a transmitter so can trace signal and in that episode there supposed to be to much rf interference so they go around electronics shop switching off every electronics device on display. Bugs UK TV series episode where Radio Shack/Tandy makes a brief appearance 28:00 and 38:17 etc: nlworld.info/key/video/wKKVmanQhqR4i4Q

  • I remember some of those stores, I think you're off the mark on the smart phone though.. that might be true in the last 10 years but most of those stores was in bad shape or long gone before the smart phone ever was even thought of. Same thing happen to arcades.. you can see some of them around still around but they've had to morph into bars and restaurants mostly.. kids now do not know what they're missing hanging out at the arcade on the weekend.. as much as we've gained with the internet we've also lost some things. Remember before everyone had the internet and you'd wait each month for that print magazine to come.. and you'd read about the news games coming out? I use to sub to gamepro.. they're long gone. now games come out almost hourly and information is a google search away which is great in a way but it also makes everything less significant.. the bar to excitement is so high now.. nothing is special. Incredible universe was pretty bad ass but I can tell you why they went out of business at least in part, their prices was quite high. I loved compusa selection and prices was usually decent but their CS was right up there with the BMV/DMV, god help you if you had a problem with something.

  • IMO, there are plenty of electronics to go around still, but most of these big stores were too slow to adapt and too bad at online marketing to remain relevant. There's no way the US could support the sheet number of electronics stores that used to exist, but there are enough of us that would like to buy physical goods (post-covid), that places that currently have ZERO stores like this could support 1 or 2 *well-stocked* superstores. Case in point, plenty of us in Florida have been practically begging Microcenter to build a store here ever since CompUSA went out of business (poor business practices there - stores were always empty and marketing was terrible).

  • Egghead Softare, Gateway Computer Stores, Best Buy, CompUSA, Circuit City, SunCoast, Radio Shack's best part in the 90s was the electronics projects or parts. Small hobby stores that sold everything too, I'm sure any were chains. Most of these places died because Walmart, Sams Club, Costco etc started to sell electronics /more/. Also Things like Egghead Software became NewEgg and started selling online. Radioshack and Toys R US had horrible horrible business practices and didnt double down into their niches. Microcenter has and I drive 5 hours+ round trip to visit many times a year and spend TONS there.

  • Yes, the culture of shopping - the process of shopping - is gone, and it went back a lot farther than the 1980s. Let's try, uh, the 80s or the 1980s BC. There is more to shopping than owning things. What will replace it? Who knows. Education is long since also shattered (classes are dumbed down and expectations are low - we have a Senator who doesn't know the three branches of government - Tommy Tuberville, whose qualifications for office are zilch - Republican of course). College is unaffordable and of doubtful value from similar dumb-down. Politics is chaos, rancor, and stupidity. Soon people will go begging for jobs. Mine is in India and has been for years. This is what comes of greed.

  • RE security - the 1980s saw an enormous surge in assholery in the USA. My own experience of it was at the Atlanta Airport. For years I had been parking my motorcycle at the end of runway 27 to watch the big jets. Suddenly I was no longer allowed to do this, and was treated very rudely and threatened. The idea of the for-profit prison was born and there were financial incentives for keeping them stocked, so police activity and brutality surged. I later understood this as a concomitant of the surge in authoritarianism that came with Reagan and a Republican Congress. That got worse and worse and culminated with the Capitol insurrection of Jan. 6th this year. Jury is out if it is too late to reverse this trend. Cops now feel perfectly justified in shooting anyone who looks at them sideways, or even murdering them on the street in full view of the public. Glad to see you again, hope your house ordeal is improving.

  • None of these people know what they are talking about. The Frys family is secretive. They obviously were using the company for some reason to keep a lot of realestate. Nobody knows what for. I worked there and all this blah blah blah about how the business operates is bullshit. It worked. They were selling plenty product years ago when I was working there even though the management sucked. it really had no bearing on any of this.

  • I used to love going to tech stores, and I still did. However I stopped going to them much more recently. Why? Because their stock was crap. The stores were old. Everything was dingy. Its still my preferred method of shopping for tech stuff because I get to hold it in my hand, see the size, form factor, imagine the use, feel the weight, judge the quality etc. But nothing kills that quicker than going to see what motherboards or graphics cards they have and seeing jack-all on the shelves. Or half of the packages are damaged return items. Or the stores are in disrepair with leaking roofs. THATS what killed it. A failure to upkeep with the times and their stores. Thats why bestbuy is still going. they don't even offer that good of stuff. In fact, I never once chose them over frys. But what they do offer is items in stock, and a clean updated store.

  • Real reason was cause there was a fear of theft. People could film or take pictures of the products and probably try to identify stuff to steal later. Least that was what I was told in Glendal when a security gaurd dragged me out years ago when I was doing photos for a girl I liked. Apparently part of that fear was also being a Latino with a camera that cost more than some of the merchandise in said mall.

  • 10:51 actually me and my dad installed CB radios in our trucks about a year ago, they are so convenient. Instead of frequently dialing whiling driving or staying on speaker phone, I just pick up the microphone, say my CB handle and who I’m talking too and just say what I need. Then he can quickly pick it up and reply, so convenient! If we want to know how traffic is or how many lanes are closed up ahead we can go to channel 19 and ask the truckers. Not to mention if we broke down and our cell phones were dead or we had no cell signal we could call for help.

Gone are the arcades, game stores, book stores, music stores, sporting goods, electronics stores, Spencer's Gifts. Even a lot of the movie theaters have disappeared.

  • Online shopping is a joke! If they have what you’re looking for it’s nearly impossible to write the exact description in the search box to display what you’re searching for. If you find a live person to describe it to they don’t have any skill in entering it in either. They only want to enter it in and then they say no, we don’t have that. At least in a brick and mortar the person stocking the shelves might remember putting it on the shelf. Online doesn’t have the specs to determine if it’s worth buying.

  • I too am saddened that the tactile experience of shopping for new tech has gone by the wayside. As a teen growing up in the late 70's and early 80's, I had literally dozens of stores to choose from. Catalog showrooms such as Service Merchandise were typically my go to for the latest games for my Sears Tele-games and later on the Colecovision. I do count myself fortunate that we have a Best Buy store less than 30 minutes away, so if I want to go and experience the latest tech, I can still do that. Thank you for the trip down memory lane. Keep up the great work!!

  • I always tell my kids this story about the demise of Sharper Image. When I was a teen, my nerdy friends and I went to a local Sharper Image excited to geek out over the endless array of gadgets. It was a magnet for young, inquisitive minds like ours. However, our curiosity was cut short by one of the employees who told us to leave. We of course did, but my friends and I swore we would never go to that store again. It was only a few years later I was old enough with enough disposable income to now afford to shop at a place like Sharper Image. But I never reneged on my promise. Moral of the story: don't bite the hand that feeds you. I wasn't sad to see Sharper Image close.

  • Thanks for the trip back to my childhood. Never considered that a smartphone basically replaces an entire Radio Shack catalog from the '80s. It is interesting that Best Buy endured the pandemic, but not Fry's. I think it had a lot to do with them not catching up with the times and providing a solid online experience. Also to note, Sam Goody and Suncoast Video were part of the Musicland corporation. They dabbled in a large box store called Media Play in the 90's (which I worked at for a while). It combined music, books, video, and software under one roof. It's sad that online shopping has killed box stores. To my family it was an event to go to the mall or go shopping for an afternoon and hit up our favorite stores like Toys 'R Us and Service Merchandise. How can we forget Good Guys?
