  1. I think there was an Allied / Radio Shack in the early 70’s at about 1700 N Harlem, just down from the Sears at Harlem & North? I could be wrong, but I do remember going there to buy a schematic of something that I wanted to fix. The World Radio History site has some Alled catalogs ( ) and the Chicagology website has a page about pre-War Allied ( ).

  2. I rem. Allied had a store open to the public on Western av. in Chicago back in the 1960s …..Olson radio was across the street.

    1. Yes, Allied was located at 100 N Western Avenue. I seem to recall that Newark Electronics was located at about 800 W Jackson until the neighborhood declined in the late 60’s. By the late 70’s, both companies had de-emphasized direct consumer sales in favor of becoming industrial parts jobbers.
