Apparently most stores only carry new cables like HDMI or USB-C. I hate turning to Amazon for this kind of thing.

Was it always like this?

@PsychoLlama depends on where you're at. I can still get ahold of VGA, DVI, and etc fairly easily. Not in huge quantities, mind you, but if I needed one I could get it.

Maybe try the next town over or something? Perhaps it's locational.

@wholesomedonut yeah, location would make sense. I'm in a dense U.S. city so maybe stores are ditching non essentials to save space? I dunno. They're still massive 🤷‍♂️

@PsychoLlama it wasn't always like this. Used to be the store didn't have it and amazon didn't exist either. 😬
