Tandy it ain't

I remember the halcyon days when Maplin was a slightly better Tandy: bigger, more stuff, more interesting stuff. A veritable Aladdin's cave for electronics geeks.

Then it became PC World 2.0 with a few token electronics bits thrown in for good measure, and awful prices to match.

Maplin is not only dead, it's long dead. It's just taken a couple of decades to bury its rotting corpse.

There's a reason that private equity companies are known as vulture capitalists.
