Fry's in Los Angeles
If you are a geek, techie or nerd, Fry's is a place to visit. They have branches all over Los Angeles, but the ones that I like to visit is the one in Burbank and Manhattan. Before heading to Fry's, check out the last page of the business section or top news section of the Los Angeles Times, most deals are published there. They sell heat guns, solder tips, capacitors, kits, tv's, computers, cameras, and the list goes on. They partner up with Outpost.com, but their web deals are not as good as visiting the store.
I bought a lot of cables and surge protectors from their this holiday, but Circuit City was more competitive with prices. I was able to purchase an HP PC (360 GB hard drive, 2 GB ram, etc.) and 19 inch monitor for $480 before taxes, which is a steal.
I don't remember seeing a Yahoo! headquarters across from Fry's. Anyway, this is off of the 5 freeway, and very close to the Burbank airport.
