It’s Electric

Here's Where To Shop For Electronics

These Houston shops have the best in tech.

By Danielle Wright

Ace Electronics is full of parts and gadgets for all your tech needs. 

MAJOR RETAILERS LIKE APPLEBEST BUY, and Amazon have become the go-to for tech gear. However, Houston has electronic stores right at our fingertips. And favorably, local retailers are more likely to carry vintage parts, making repairing old electronics a lot less of a hassle.

The best storefronts have years of experience, and most electronic shops in Houston have been around since the '80s, so there's a higher chance the employees have a real passion for electronics. Looking for a piece, but it's not worth the shipping time? You'll find hard-to-find cables, quality cameras, and rental equipment at one of these long-running local electronic stores.  


Ace Electronics

Since 1964, Ace Electronics has served Houstonians top-of-the-line devices from well-known brands such as Philips, Texas Instruments, and RCA. The family-owned business is also one of the few local electronic stores stocked with automotive gadgets.
