RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another jolt of life today. 87 Cottage Grove Radioshack… when they were bought by another company that plans to relaunch the once-great merchant as an online-focused brand.

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

REV declares it’s effectively turned around other companies it’s released as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its income in between the first and 2nd quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody wanting to grab tech essentials. For a long period of time, that indicated real radio elements, but ended up including great deals of electronic toys (one Edge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes declined significantly as online shopping showed up, and the business filed for insolvency two times in the past five years. RadioShack still certifies its name to third-party “authorized” shops and offers top quality items within some areas of HobbyTown, a crafts retailer– comparable to how you can still discover “Sharper Image” items at Kohl’s even though that merchant shut its physical doors over a years ago. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would remain. 87 Cottage Grove Radioshack

REV states 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 enough location to go when you wish to purchase pricey HDMI cables and knockoff earphones.
