If you are searching for all electronic stores, shops or online mall to look for supply, gadgets and repair parts that is near to your place you can actually visit the link below:

Those websites I have compiled throughout all these years for your convenience to find your electronics store that is close to you. As for my country, the nearest place is about 45 minutes drive from my place and I don’t visit the the center all the time. Usually I will go there 3 to 4 months once.

Sometimes, after the training class I will bring my students to visit the place (Pasar Road in KL) so that they will have the exposure of where the place is and things to buy before they go back to their own countries. You can take a look at the photo below. It was taken on November last year and they had fun shopping around the electronic stores.

Actually there is another electronics shop that is nearby my location, but the things that they are selling was not that really complete. For example, they sell only few brands of  digital and analogue multimeter but they do not sell digital capacitance meter. Some common parts like the Schottky Diode and IC, they do not sell. As for me, unless if I’m getting capacitors, linear transformer and some common general purpose diodes then i will go there and buy.

In many occasions, I rather buy electronics parts from online stores because those websites like Aliexpress or even ebay.com have more choices and adding all the parts with one shipment would reduce the overall shipping price. Usually I would choose DHL service because it would just take 4 to 5 working days to reach my office front door. Of course you have to pay a higher price for the shipping cost. I can actually gain/contra back when ordering online because I do not need to pay for the car petrol, parking, toll and most importantly is the time I could save from going to the center of town.

Do you buy from local electronic stores or prefer to buy online?

    Just looking at the store brings back lots of memories of the days when we had stores like that around here. They are all gone now, you need to order most everything from the internet now. Radio Shack is even going out of business soon. But they stopped selling electronic parts years ago anyway. Nice photo, and brought back some nice memories... Thanks .

      HI Wes,

      You are welcome. Radio shack here already closed long time ago and it seems that many electronic shops no longer keep small parts and had shifted their business into selling car accessories, cctv/alarm equipment and audio equipment/speakers.

    Thanks Mr. Yong. I buy nearly everything on-line - even from Mouser that is only about 25 miles from where I live. The shipping is less than it would cost me to drive. There is a Radio Shack close by but they don't have much for electronics anymore except connecters, cleaners & lubricants and stuff. It looks like they are going out of business now.

      Hi Robert,

      Sad to hear those physical electronic stores are closing down. If they have moved to online business guess they could still sustain it.

        Radio Shack has a decent on-line store, but nothing like Mouser or Digikey. I have to admit though that Radio Shack's ESD component shipping is second to none that I've seen. IC's from them are in ESD foam and packaged very well. I hope they keep the on-line store going.

      HI Gopal,

      You may have to compare the price with aliexpress.com. As for the parts, it may have few different grades and you have to order it and test it out.
