Time is running out for beloved Houston electronics store, but owners are fighting to the end
Stepping into the electronic parts store is a lot like stepping into a museum – well, except for the shelves filled with microprocessors, circuit boards, electric motors, and other components stacked on the rafters.
Opposite the cash register is a working tube tester, where customers bring in vacuum tubes from old TVs, amplifiers, and radios to see if they’re still working. At the back, you’ll find Cold War-era oscilloscopes torn from decommissioned Navy ships. Near the entrance, a WWII hand-cranked telephone rings its twin near the back of the store. (And no, these are not for sale).
