Digi-Key still has plenty of through-hole parts, although 
less than the 2 million+ items they once stocked.
Since I have a P&P machine, I, too, have moved over to using 
as much SMT as possible, but still use
a lot of through-hole connectors and power transistors.  
Their search engine is great, and this has pushed
other distributors to upgrade their search capability.
