One of Houstons mainstay hobby / pro electronics, EPO, places is having 
a hard time. Haven't been there in a long time since I moved 30 miles 
north. Used to get there once a month. In the late 80s I was engineering 
manager for a startup and got PC equipment from EPO. Got to know Dan, 
the original owner, a bit. It was an eclectic place. He had a G-scale 
railroad suspended upside down from the ceiling. Magnets kept every from 
falling down.

Our Microcenter store is not far from them. I suspect that hurt 
business. Anyone wanting something new would go there leaving surplus 
and older materials to EPO.
