Radio Shack was national chain of electronics stores in the Rochester area. One of the few places you could go for a variety of little electronic components and gadgets, connectors, wire, etc. They still have stores in other areas of NYS.

2008-03-23 20:53:17 I went there to buy a hard to find battery and I've been asked personal information like telephone number and address to complete the purchasing (the official explanation was they get those info to notify customers in case of recalls or warranty issues). I was in a hurry and really needed the battery for my garage door opener so I didn't argue too much, but it didn't feel right. Luckily I have a mailbox and an expendable phone number just for these situations. I always liked Radio Shack (I was born a Commodore guy, but Tandy Radio Shack, along with Apple ][, was part of my childhood) but this questionable business practice could drive me away. —AndreaCogliati

2008-03-23 22:05:56 I'm surprised that Andrea was asked for that info - they did that for a long time, but stopped the practice at least four or five years ago. I certainly haven't been asked in at least that long, at any of the three or four local Radio Shacks I've been to in that time. —RichMulvey
