    Evidently the Sprint idea of taking over the stores is DOA.

    On Monday, I noted that the Cedar Hills location is empty, and there are “FOR LEASE” signs on the windows. According to Radio Shack’s Web site, there are NO more stores in Portland! The closest ones are in Clatskanie, Warrenton, and Long Beach. The end of an era is imminent.

    I needed some speaker wire last week and tried to go to my local Radio Shack in South Salem.

    It’s now a gun shop.

    But you Salemites still have Norvac Electronics.

    How about a comeback for Lafayette Electronics—:)

    The name was revived in 2003 at the CES but nothing else to be found sans a few local stores around the country using the ‘Lafayette Electronics’ name (most notably in Lafayette, IN) but nothing other then nostalgia under ‘Lafayette Radio’ or ‘Lafayette Radio Electronics.’

    We do have Norvac, and it’s better than RS by far!
    But It was Sunday.

    You can (I think) still use the one at SE 164th & 20th behind Fred’s. Vancouver’s closer than driving to the coast.

    There are two models of portable shortwave radios available for $35.99. These might be useful for those who travel to parts of the world where shortwave is more heavily used.
