Surplus electronics. Heavy on parts for old Collins gear.
(From Art Zirger)
It's not correct to place [..] Fry's Electronics under Surplus Stores. They only sell new stuff. While you can get them to ship some stuff to you, I'd classify them as a walk-in store only. No catalogs, only sales fliers in the local newspapers. They have multiple stores in Southern California and the Bay Area. Unfortunately, their percentage of electronics parts/accessories seems to slowly shrink as they devote more floor space to things like refrigerators.
(Editor: Since it's John Wood's list, I'll keep it here BUT with the disclaimer above.)
