RadioShack’s shambling remains were provided another shock of life today. Batteries Radioshack… when they were purchased by another company that plans to relaunch the once-great merchant 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 brands from other faded retail giants also, including Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Product, Dressbarn, and more. REV states RadioShack’s website currently has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the company is “positive” it can even more raise awareness of the brand name worldwide.

REV claims it’s effectively reversed other business it’s introduced as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its profits in between the first and 2nd quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was founded in 1921 and ended up being a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody wanting to grab tech fundamentals. For a long period of time, that indicated real radio components, but wound up including great deals of electronic toys (one Edge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes decreased vastly as online shopping arrived, and the business applied for bankruptcy two times in the past 5 years. RadioShack still licenses its name to third-party “licensed” stores and sells top quality products within some places of HobbyTown, a crafts seller– comparable to how you can still find “Sharper Image” products at Kohl’s even though that merchant shut its physical doors over a years ago. REV didn’t state whether those RadioShack licenses would remain. Batteries Radioshack

REV states it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still clinging on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar sufficient place to go when you want to buy overpriced HDMI cables and knockoff headphones.
