I finally weened myself from them.... got pretty angry in there one day
as I was looking for a pnp transistor whilst listning to a salesman
across the room demonstrate the 43 polyphonic ring tones to a guy who
was barely able to count to 21 on his fingers and toes.

They really should change their name to cell phone shack.
