It is, or will soon be, a very unique place. Hard
to describe it, you just gotta see it to understand it.

Sorry to hear that a store you like so much is closing.
Sounds like a really neat store.

Sad to say, but my absolute favorite place
to shop in the whole world is going out of business.
Electronic Surplus Services of 900 Candia Road in Manchester NH
is selling off it's entire inventory of parts, tools, manuals,
and chemicals and closing it's doors after a long run.
How long? I really can't say. I've only discovered them myself
about ten years ago, but since then I've made it a mandatory
visit every six months or so.
Since it's a surplus outfit, you never know what they will have
in stock, but there is always a good stock of wire and cable (at
3 dollars per pound on the spool) a bewildering variety of sizes
and colors of heatshrink tubing, switches, connectors, NTE
replacement semiconductors, capacitors, resistors, electronic
tools including ratcheting crimpers for RF connectors, oodles of
laptop-style power supplies, video monitors, LEDs, AKRO bins,
you name it. Over the years I've purchased several soldering and
desoldering stations there, a very nice full size assembly
bench, draftsman's chairs, said AKRO bins, several items of test
equipment, coaxial cable, silver-plated copper braid, even nylon
braid to put over top of a custom wiring harness I made for a
set of Morrow Twins.
Did I mention everything is 50% off while it lasts? Have I got
your attention now?
I will sure hate to see 'em go... probably the last store
anywhere in the area to carry anything of a useful nature in the
electronics parts genre.
