    Such a beautiful smile,and wonderful tour, through the best electronics / assorted parts place. The people there must be friendly indeed to let you tour unimpeded. 💝

    The background noise sounds like there is radioactivity, want make me nervous or give it a Tchernobyl touch?

    I love going to this place. I have gone there for record player belts, cartridges, needles, blank audio cassettes, and replacement capacitors for a Reel to Reel tape recorder. The owner knows his shit, too. None of that Radio Shack and Best Buy salesman bullshit. Walk in, look around without being bothered and when you have a question, it will be answered.

    Really cool to walk. I know you live close to me, but I grew up in that store. I know the whole family, and meet the late Chester.

    I love❤️ a place like this! I always go to Goodwill or the thrift shops to find what I can retrofit. Fitting classic electronics with modern technology for people that love the styles of the 60’s 70’s & 80’s sometimes 90’s is a hobby of mine. ✌️ Respect

  7. Daniel Watson on October 27, 2021 at 9:26 am

    OMFG that is the greatest shop I’ve ever seen in my life. Much want for all of the things!

  8. ISOBigNugget on October 27, 2021 at 9:27 am

    These little places are always so interesting. They are few and far between, but cool places nonetheless.

    I am high as shit on weed right now and that part where you smiled at the camera tripped me out.
    haha.
    Great video though, i’d honestly spend weeks in there making and tinkering with things.

    14.50 So beautiful Rinoa

  17. Derin on October 27, 2021 at 9:33 am

    It’s crazy to think all these oddball parts were sold at enough volume to be put in retail packaging like this back in the day

  18. Host Electronics on October 27, 2021 at 9:33 am

    great store

  19. tre bushett on October 27, 2021 at 9:36 am

    Rinoa, You look so happy.

  21. Emmett Turner on October 27, 2021 at 9:38 am

    I got that exact package of Linrose LED from Fry’s Electronics last year. I don’t think those are as old as they look. Heck, the Fry’s here closed down in about a decade (closed last year).

  23. Morgan Cahill on October 27, 2021 at 9:42 am

    I grew up going here!

  24. Graham Brown on October 27, 2021 at 9:45 am

    You don’t see these places in the UK anymore. We used to have the big companies like Henrys Radio and the US had Radio Shack.
    I loved walking around the local electronic shop and selecting resistors, capacitors, transistors (NPN and PNP), and aluminium boxes to build projects. These paces had a distinguished smell about them.You could also buy old magazines, Practical Electronics, Practical Radio.
    When i was small i remember my father buying me in the early 1960’s an electronics lab. In the box was a board with all these electronic components attached to springs. The box had circuit diagrams that you placed over the board that showed you how to wire up a project. I remember building my fist crystal radio and listening to station though a small earpiece. That experience was the basis for my career in electrical and electronic engineering.
    I also remember the old thermionic valves and CRT’s.
    Have you ever see these vintage electronic labs for sale? I would love to buy one because it would link me to the bond i had with my father when he was a live.
    Thanks for sharing this.

    0:41 I guess its 5.25 inch floppy disk from good old time that can hold little data .

  26. Ian Gomes on October 27, 2021 at 9:48 am

    Cool! I wonder if they have some vintage transistors I’m looking for? *checks website* uhhh, I might have to call them. haha

  27. Evgeny Zislis on October 27, 2021 at 9:54 am

    Some of those old logic chips on those boards are going for dozens of dollars each on ebay; if only you know which ones to pick the resell value is quite good.

  28. Arthur Roberts on October 27, 2021 at 9:54 am

    Just like several stores in Sunnyvale and Mt. View in California. Also looks like my storage locker. At least now I can walk through a place like that and not be tempted to buy it all.

  29. LGR on October 27, 2021 at 9:59 am

    What a delightful shop!

  30. Kira Bradley on October 27, 2021 at 10:00 am

    I love the books!!

  31. RAM RECORDS on October 27, 2021 at 10:01 am

    For sale …tubes…6l6. L 34…12×7…for amplificadores

  32. Cooked Goose on October 27, 2021 at 10:03 am

    I think you can build a Time Machine using all the stuff in that store.

  33. Qs Tech Service on October 27, 2021 at 10:03 am

    Love Chester’s Electronics in Kenosha I go there all the time ‼️ Need capacitors or any SMD components Old tubes
    I spend at least an hour in that store almost sometimes Good people that run the store always have things ready before you come
    One awesome store 🏬

  34. Sunil Pandit on October 27, 2021 at 10:03 am

    Thanks mam 🙏

  35. IanPB on October 27, 2021 at 10:04 am

    This video reminds me of that Back To The Future II scene where Marty looked at an antique shop with an apple II computer in it.

  36. Scootaloo on October 27, 2021 at 10:05 am

    I’ve been in this store once to have a look around. It was a true time capsule of the electronics industry for sure. This place was quite amazing. I live right down the street from this store actually and I love Kenosha. There is just so much to see and do here. Mars Cheese Castle is another awesome gem in town, as well as the Kenosha lakefront with it’s amazing museums and even electric street cars. And all on the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan. And there’s tons of shopping, hotels and restaurants as well in town. Kenosha is now a bustling place for sure with a lot to see and do. Definitely a great tourist town for those not from here.

  37. joe mazza on October 27, 2021 at 10:05 am

    Thanks for the video I really enjoyed it. I think I seen CB radio Johnson in the box hard to find sometimes in the original box

  38. Arthur Roberts on October 27, 2021 at 10:08 am

    In 1977 the new Fry’s Electronics opened in Sunnyvale. A group of us walked over to it during our lunch hour. My reaction was "Chips and DIPs on one aisle and chips and dips on another aisle, one was silicon and one was potato."

  39. Mark Harris on October 27, 2021 at 10:10 am

    What a place, I want one in England.

  40. pasha12343 on October 27, 2021 at 10:13 am

    Great shop 👍🙂

  41. AvidRetro on October 27, 2021 at 10:13 am

    Looks like a bigger version of my loft! ha ha

  42. Dimes Gaming on October 27, 2021 at 10:14 am

    People who disliked are kids that don’t know anything about old electronics and think this store is trash. Btw cool store i would love to buy many stuff for my projects

  43. Ian Anderson on October 27, 2021 at 10:15 am

    What a place. The phrase ‘kid in a candy shop’ probably best described that smile! I’ll freely admit I don’t understand much about electronics, but I would still love a look around a place like that. As someone from the UK who grew up with a ZX Spectrum or two (or three…) I have a thing for older technology.

  44. coyotePAC3 on October 27, 2021 at 10:16 am

    If we locked House, McGyiver and Mr. Wizard in this shop, they would beat COVID, cure cancer and solve the energy crisis…

  45. and Chips on October 27, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Kid in a candy store moment 14:52, Wow what a neat place, you could spend hours hear.

  46. Rinus Strijker on October 27, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Nice shop, thx for the tour. Greetings from the Netherlands 😁

  47. GovernorVentura on October 27, 2021 at 10:21 am

    This shop reminds me of a place that i used to frequent in PA called Kemner’s Surplus that shut down recently (pre-covid, even). This place looks a lot cleaner and more organized though.

  48. Steve Neubaum on October 27, 2021 at 10:22 am

    I used to live in Kenosha (Thank God I got out of that place!) but went to Chester weekly. It was "Nerd Heaven" as I called it. Used to just walk around, look at the loose spare parts on some of the shelves and get ideas for my model railroad. Built a working water tank spout out of an old solenoid, turned some CRT electromagnets into uncoupling magnets for my yard, those 11.5VAC transformers they have for 79 cents, used old lamp sockets to adapt them to wall power, those power switches and building lights now on my layouts.

    Lovely smile…. My wife’s got jealous… <-;p
