Used to stand for Radio Spares, later Radiospares, RS Components. A
phone/mail-order trade supplier, originally specialising in parts for
radios and TVs, but now selling everything from resistors to car park
furniture. They had a separate sell-to-the-public offshoot called
Electromail for a while, but now RS will take almost anyone's money (I
think you might need to open an account, though). Lots of electronics
shops will order RS parts for you. Their paper catalogue is 1cm wider
than Farnell's (16cm as opposed to 15cm).
