I remember some 20 years ago when the only three Microcenters were 2 in 
Columbus ( they use to be head quartered there - and might still ), and 
Mayfield Hts ( a suburb of Cleveland. ).  When I lived in Mentor, I use 
to go there a lot, and also here:


Fortunately, being where I'm at in MD now, there are a couple 
Microcenters within reasonable driving distance.  But, sadly, there is 
nothing like Electronics Surplus.

As a side note, anyone from the Cleveland area may remember Electronics 
Surplus as Western Salvage until sometime in the late '80s or early '90s 
when they were bought out and changed their name. The use to be in 
Downtown on Prospect.

All from a day when Cleveland was a great city ... before they tore down 
the steal mills to build a Walmart ... but I digress ...
