I had not heard!  I haven't been there in years, and TBH, when I did
go, it always took a long time to find specific items on my shopping
list because their assortment was so vast.

The last time I remember going, I had specific sizes of metric
fasteners I needed to complete a 3D Printer.  I think I spent 2 hours
walking up and down the aisle checking bins.  I picked up about 60% of
what I was looking for, but it was all oddball long items that I
couldn't get from the well-stocked fastener places in town.  M3 over
36mm is tricky to find, let's just say.

It was a fantastic place to just browse, though.  If you didn't have a
list and had 3 hours to kill, you could stumble on some amazing

Right now, I'm wishing I had even an hour to browse for switches and capacitors.
