Yup, I used to work for Radio shack back in my late teens. I still remember 3 of the 4 walls of the store being covered in component packages, plus the drawers full of them. While they have recently started carrying a few components again, along with some REALLY overpriced Arduino kits, it's a sad shadow of their former glory. (Not to mention that they are charging as much for 5 resistors as a 100 pack will cost mail order...)
