I too remember looking through my Allied and Lafayette catalogs. Good times to be sure. Anyway, here you go:

Allied (1929 thru 1981)

Allied Radio & Allied Electronics - 85 Year Catalog Archive

I remember Heathkit also used to build their stuff and had a lot of fun doing so. Now that everything is surface mount device technology those days are over. Been an Electronics Technician for thirty five years and it is just not fun anymore.

So there's 6 left open in Mass. They will all be closing in 6 days.

Parts are still listed (at least as of yesterday) as $1 each. Packs of Batteries buy one get one free on top of the existing discounts.

I stopped into the Falmouth location Monday. Met a man who says he has worked for RS for 42 years. Seemed really knowledgeable and a nice guy overall. Sad to see him be out of a job. I also visited Cambridge, Swampscott and Wilmington MA locations since Monday. Lots of parts, connectors and cables left for those looking to scoop them up. On the fence about visiting Quincy and/or Gloucester.

Not one store left open here in Northern Utah (Ogden) except for a couple of "authorized dealers" within a 100 mile radius of my location. The Radio Shacks in Harrisville and Roy were closed and vacant shortly after Memorial Day, along with all the stores in Salt Lake and surrounding suburbs. RIP, Radio Shack.
