I just saw a commercial on NY1 stating that Argo Electronics is closing. They were the last Electronic Surplus stores on Canal St. I never saw a commercial for Argo. 

For those of you that don't know the significance. Back in the 80s (probably back in the 70s too but I am not that old), Canal St in NYC had many electronic surplus stores. Everything from radios to oscilloscopes. There are still electronic stores there but nothing like Argo. I remember buying all sorts of stuff. Well it looks like they are closing. 

Here are some sites that show pictures of Argo
