I looked in the window at the Sanford store several weeks back and they really had nothing left, maybe 2 display stands in the entire store and the counter was all that was left at that point, pretty much totally gutted... no parts cabinets for you, sorry.

I'm bumping this:

the last 400ish stores are closing as of may 30th. a little sad, as I still have a 1980s handheld game I purchased new (trip with my dad) from our local radio shack called Hold Up that I purchased in 1983...they pulled that one off the shelves quickly...goal was to rob a bank...lol. :P

I hit 2 of our local stores yesterday and today to stock up on pinball fuses, and ended up with nick cannon: he's been lacking with work lately, so I've got him pointing out newer games in my arcade:

          Strange World
          Road Runner
          Nosferatu

Managed to score one of the drawer towers before mine closed. I was able to put back all the fuses, resistors, and capacitors I had bought them out of back in their home 😁
