Sure you could buy generic parts like resistors and capacitors, but never the good stuff.
Decades ago when I lived in Atlanta, I spent my time at Ack Electronics where I could get Dale precision resistors, Mallory electrolytic caps, Belden cable, Telefunken and Philips tubes and the like.
It was maybe the biggest gateway for non-audiophiles to become audiophiles..... It certainly played a major role for me becoming an audiophile.
Closest thing to the Edmund's Scientific Catalog, but local. Remember that?
and all fairness my introduction to electronic stores was with a company called Lafayette Radio which is now long gone.
At age 13, I upgraded my system using an Electrophonic T600 receiver with a pair of Utah MK17s. :)
It has been a good place to get a starter system , at least it used to be. I got my first set-up from them when I was a teen. Of course it grew from there.
