RadioShack’s shambling remains were provided another shock of life today. Can My Radioshack Pro 2018 Scanner Receive Digital Signals… when they were acquired by another company that prepares 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 brands from other faded retail giants also, including Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Product, Dressbarn, and more. REV says RadioShack’s website currently has “strong existing sales and sales potential,” and the company is “confident” it can even more raise awareness of the brand internationally.
REV claims it’s effectively reversed other companies it’s introduced as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its revenue 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 anyone looking to get tech fundamentals. REV didn’t state whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Can My Radioshack Pro 2018 Scanner Receive Digital Signals
