I thought so. Well before I knew of any Apple Retail store, I found Macs at Fry's. Fry's is always a madhouse, but generally speaking, they have always had everything I could ever need.

Rat Shack has jumped the shark so hard and so long ago it's name should be erased from our vocabulary.

I bought a 4S there in January and the sales guy did everything he could to try to get me to buy a case or car charger for the phone. He was so disappointed when I told him this was not my first iPhone and I had every accessory I could ever want for an iPhone. They probably don't make anything from iPhone sales so they push accessories.

I have a box full of headsets, usb cords and wall chargers from olds iPhones that I have sold over the years.

Lucky . . . for me it's 2 miles to the Shack, 70 to Best Buy, 200 to Apple.

I still have the Tandy 1000 HX computer my family purchased back in 1987. The last time I fired it up in 2006, I played a rousing game of Space Quest III. I'll have to put it back together and see if it still works.

I also remember RS selling IBM Aptivas, probably around the early 90s. Don't recall them selling any computers any longer. Perhaps a couple of keyboards and mice, these days.

Wow, I can't believe some of the stupid replies that are being posted. I really don't care where I buy my Apple products as long as its convenient and priced right. Lets see....closest Apple store is a 100 mile round trip. Best buy is over ten miles away. Radio Shack and Walmart are both 1/2 mile from me. I try to avoid having products shipped to me as I sometimes don't get home from work until late at night. I just bought two iPads from Walmart I guess I should of driven 100 miles to the Apple Store instead.

Let Walmart carry these accessories as well and people would go there before they went to Radio Shack too.
ZOMG I've been to Best Buy and Wal-Mart and have HORRIBLE experiences there. Clearly, Apple should just not bother selling things because the unwashed masses ruin everything...

What I mean to say is that your personal anecdote means nothing.
