RadioShack’s shambling remains were offered another jolt of life today. Anthony Jesenik Radioshack… when they were acquired by another business that prepares to relaunch the once-great retailer as an online-focused brand name.

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

REV declares it’s successfully reversed other business it’s launched as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its earnings 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 aiming to grab tech fundamentals. For a long time, that indicated actual radio elements, however ended up including lots of electronic toys (one Verge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes decreased vastly as online shopping got here, and the company applied for personal bankruptcy twice in the past five years. RadioShack still accredits its name to third-party “authorized” stores and offers branded items within some locations of HobbyTown, a crafts merchant– similar to how you can still discover “Sharper Image” products at Kohl’s although that merchant shut its physical doors over a years ago. REV didn’t state whether those RadioShack licenses would remain. Anthony Jesenik Radioshack

REV says it will “quickly relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still sticking on to fond memories of the shop, there’ll be a familiar enough place to go when you wish to buy expensive HDMI cable televisions and knockoff headphones.
