Goldcrest Electronics is a locally owned and operated electronics parts store in Swillburg/Highland Park. It is located at the same corner as the Highland Park Diner and The Cinema and carries specialty electronics items such as cables and wiring for home theater, video, telephone, CCTV, and audio; standard electronics parts such as batteries, connectors, tools, and test equipment; and "all those little bits and pieces that are impossible to find anywhere else."
In addition to being a local alternative to chains like Radio Shack, it is now one of only two electronics stores within city limits, the other being Kovalksy-Carr on St. Paul Street. As of 2020, the owners have decided to close the shop and retire.

2008-04-06 17:33:48 Radioshack is (and even in its day, was) a pale shadow of Goldcrest! Besides the large retail area, there's a basement chock full of electronic components and other goodies. —JonRobins
2011-07-05 15:35:21 price checked on some buss fuses.. they wanted twice as much as it would cost shipped from an online retailer —PaulAdamides
2011-07-05 19:55:21 Paul, that might be a true comment, but I suspect that you could have walked out of Goldcrest with those fuses that day (?) and would have waited a day or two for delivery from the online merchant. Also, did you keep shipping costs in mind? —DottieHoffmann
2011-07-05 22:14:35 Dottie, I've bought online stuff like capacitors and ICs. Online is a lot cheaper and the places I've ordered from can get you the parts almost the next day with with regular shipping. —DamianKumor
2011-09-19 10:52:06 I'd skip the online savings just to support a local business; brick & mortar electronic retailers like this one are extremely rare these days. I've spent the past four years living in NYC, and finding a place that comes close to Goldcrest is difficult. When I am back in Rochester and working on a project, I'll usually swing by here before looking at Parts Express. —RoniSolomonDDS
