They are also a physical chain with multiple outlets, and good
off-the-shelf stock, and a strong web presence. Since Lumicon closed in
Livermore (and was bought by this very same Scope City IIRC) the SC in
San Francisco is my easiest physical astro outlet.
Lumicon's assets were acquired by Parks Optical, not Scope City.

Just curious: how/where do you find parking at the San Francisco Scope
Northpoint parking garage - free with validation. Same building as Scope
City last time I visited (been awhile - they may have moved?)
The only other "real" astro dealer in Northern California is Orion in
And their outlet in Watsonville - A bit far for regular visits.
