Don Box (with a new look):
I had to have one, so I drove down to Incredible Universe (a consumer electronics mini-chain whose assets were eventually bought out by Fry’s Electronics).
Ahh, Incredible Universe. What a year or so that was. I think I shopped at Incredible Universe twice. Both times were at the Incredible Universe near Potomac Mills in Virginia. The first time I scoped things out, the second I bought a (musical) keyboard.
Incredible Universe was of the biggest (and arguably ugliest) of the big big box stores. The shell still sits outside of the mall, though I’m pretty sure they painted it a more mundane color. They even painted the weird UFO-looking structure that was out front.
