RadioShack’s shambling remains were offered another jolt of life today. 271-1109 Site Radioshack.Com… when they were purchased by another company that plans to relaunch the once-great retailer as an online-focused brand.

The store’s remains were purchased by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV), a start-up founded in 2019 that’s been scooping up brand names from other faded retail giants as well, consisting of Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Item, Dressbarn, and more. REV states RadioShack’s site currently has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the business is “confident” it can further raise awareness of the brand name globally.

REV declares it’s effectively turned around other business it’s introduced as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its profits in between the second and first quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anyone wanting to grab tech essentials. For a long time, that meant actual radio elements, but ended up consisting of lots of electronic toys (one Brink editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and ultimately phones. Its fortunes declined significantly as online shopping got here, and the business applied for personal bankruptcy twice in the past five years. RadioShack still certifies its name to third-party “authorized” shops and offers branded products within some locations of HobbyTown, a crafts retailer– similar to how you can still find “Sharper Image” items at Kohl’s even though that retailer shut its physical doors over a decade ago. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. 271-1109 Site Radioshack.Com

REV says it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still sticking on to fond memories of the shop, there’ll be a familiar adequate place to go when you want to buy costly HDMI cables and knockoff headphones.
