Default CHCH, NZ: What happened to Elequip?

I was driving down Cashel Street the other day and thought I'd stop to check his open times, and was horrified to see his shop empty Cleaned out! Where has Elequip gone? That place was a treasure trove

What sort of shop was it?
If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish he will buy an ugly hat. And if you talk about fish to a starving man then you are a consultant. Dilbert

He had stacks and stacks of old radio gear

boxes of valve sockets, of connectors, trafos, capacitors, resistors, knobs, pots blah blah blah, mostly in piles on the floor or trestles around the place. Wasn't tidy but there was lots there

Last I heard, old Charlie Field was out of the game. I think Geoff Edwards (Valve Radio Spares, Lyttelton) ended up with the residue of the glassware (though Charlie had been flogging off the bottles via Trademe for years previous).
