Radio Shack has changed a lot in the last 25 years. At one time a respectable store for electronics and computer hobbyists, with other useful gear for audiophiles and related things, it has swung heavily in the direction of mega-cell-phone-kiosk, GPS, and radio controlled toy store.

Problem is, cell phone kiosks do that better, Best Buy does GPS better, and K-Mart does R/C toys ... well, maybe not better, but substantially cheaper.

I tire of commission-driven salespeople hovering over me and looking at me strangely if I go back to the electronics area and look through the drawer bins for something. I do occasionally find that Radio Shack is useful as a store of last resort, but the prices are ridiculously marked up on almost anything I would buy.

Bring back the TRS-80 display in the front of the store, haha :-)
