Find Atlanta Radioshack 2022 | PST

 

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

The shop’s remains were acquired 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, including Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Product, Dressbarn, and more. REV says RadioShack’s site currently has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the business is “positive” it can even more raise awareness of the brand internationally.

REV claims it’s successfully reversed other business it’s released as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its earnings in between the first and second quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was established in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anyone looking to get tech essentials. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Atlanta 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 location to go when you want to buy expensive HDMI cable televisions and knockoff earphones.
