Apparently in my area Radio Shack is discontinuing their bread boards, proto (perf) boards and other solder boards. Also, their DIY PCB kit. They say Radio Shack is discontinuing the product lines. Anyone else experiencing this? Stock up now if you got em!

Typical of them.
I'm going to stop by 2 tomorrow and see what mine have left - I'll let you know if I hear different...

If someone can come up with a source for these boards as well, that'd be good to post. I'd like to find perfboard that does not have the solder pads. I know mouser has it, but its over $7. If anyone can find these boards from radioshack at a clearance price, I'd be interested in buying some :-)

Order plenty because they will get you on shipping.

Saw the eBay auction- went straight there after I came home from RS. I called radio shack corporate and talked to the local district manager. Aparently they are pulling alot of the electronic parts from many of the stores. The boards are definately going away I was told.

The online store still carries them, and I check with my local radio shack store if they could order them in for me, so I could save on shipping. The local store can actually order them in the store, and ship them directly to me without any shipping costs at all. Yay!

Tell me about it... From ordering I get their catalogs every now and again and they come across some pretty nifty things.
