Electronics component shop are dying.
My nearest electronics component shop Yleiselektroniikka in Espoo Finland at Luomannotko 6 just closed it’s shop few weeks ago. They still sells online.
The remaining shops are much smaller and much farther away on other nearby cities (Helsinki and Espoo). The way seems to be now to return to mail order – either from those if I want quality or cheap crap from china for experimenting.
I made years ago an overview document (now outdated) on the electronics component shops in Helsinki and Finland. It seems to be time for some update. Here is overview of still existing electronics component shops in Finland near Helsinki I know about. I used to visit many of them, but not that much anymore.
Uraltone is a Musical Instrument Electronics Specialty Store in Helsinki at Helsinginkatu 30. This shop has Tube Amplifier Accessories, Building Kits, Guitar Parts, Speakers, HIFI, Pedal Boards, Electronic Components. Google has street view picture.
Partco has an electronics component shop in Vantaa at Juurakkotie 5 B. Partco has a wide range serves everything related to electronics hobbies, training, maintenance and manufacturing.
Google has some pictures of outside and inside.
