From CQ magazine blog today:
Amateur Electronic Supply (AES) has announced that it is ceasing operations as of the end of July, 2016.
The Milwaukee-based retailer has four locations around the country, including Milwaukee; Cleveland (Wickliffe), Ohio; Las Vegas, Nevada and Orlando, Florida. It has long been the nation’s second-largest ham radio dealer, after Ham Radio Outlet. No reason was given for the decision to close the business.
