    Nice! Stephen from Own Or Disown and I did a collaboration video at my local MC back in June. It's my favorite brick and mortar store :)

    Ah I remember the Santa Clara micro center. First visit there immediately felt the difference compared to Fry's lol.

    I wish Nashville would get one - we're there all the time. Closest one to me, STL, is 2 hours.

    My Parents and I actually inquired about opening a franchise store a while ago, just could never find the right property location for it for an investment of that size.
    The one is St. Louis Park, MN is absolutely slammed with a line out the door at practically anytime. It really is one of the only real "Computer Stores" that exist in the wild these days.

    There's one in Houston, where I used to visit Fry's when I would go to the city (about 1.5 hours away.) Now I think, "Fry's? What's that?" I mean, they have their computer and portable electronics sections which are pretty large, but then they use the rest of the floor space for appliances, tv's, restaurant, and everything else.

    Micro Center is all about PC's and gaming. There's a small section for phones and tablets, but the main theme is PC's and accessories. They even have say, Dell/Alienware sections and other brands. The back of the store is devoted to DIY PC building. Every part you would need, rows and rows and rows all divided up into categories. I can't even imagine the dollar amount of their inventory. I have to be careful when I go there cause I can end up losing meals and sleep from spending all day browsing.
