Purchase Radio

Please read my license notice before copying my photos.

Purchase Radio was a wonderful old radio shop located on Hoover in Ann Arbor for many years. My dad bought me my first serious short wave receiver, a Hallicrafters SX-71, there when I was about eight. The original owner, Roy Purchase, died in the 1980s and the store was taken over by his son-in-law Dan. Purchase went out of business February 16, 2007 when Dan retired. I took most of these photos the day they closed.

Most of the inventory was bought by Van's Appliance & Electronics at 2828 Lewis Ave, Ida, MI.
