It's a Trade Counter, but if you phone ahead with some details, I imagine
they'll quite happily deal with you.  If you look ahead to their website,
they have all the details, and of course, the catalogue with all the
reference numbers :)  http://rswww.com/ - click on 'Trade Counters' on the
right hand side for contact details and a pdf map.  As Ian says, they're on
Baird Street beside an Office World ... http://tinyurl.com/2nn9

RS's delivery service is impressively prompt - I recall ordering a
replacement PROM for a SPARCstation at about 6-7pm one night from their
site, and receiving it before 1pm the next day.
