In Reno, there's Graybar on McCarran and Greg street, they have Square D stuff. Pretty good stock of general material.

There's Wesco on East Glendale, not far from Graybar. They are more of an order house than anything, not much is stocked. They have GE. The counter is horribly slow.

There's also Wedco on 6th street, not far from 395/80. They have more industrial stuff and sell Square D too.

There's Grove Madsen a bit further down 6th street, they have Allen Bradley and Cutler Hammer. They're the most expensive for general material, but they stock a lot of oddball stuff.

There may be more, but these are the ones we usually use.

In Reno, Graybar was my primary supplier, followed by Royal, Wedco, and Grove Madsen, and Granite in that order. I've been out of the area for about two years, so I don't know what changes have occurred. All are convenient to either 395 0r I-80.

In Carson, it was Wedco all the way.

It depends in part on what you're looking for.

Granite is no longer in business, don't know about Royal.

The guy who used to manage Granite now manages Wesco.

Royal (If they're still around) stocked Siemens.
