RadioShack’s shambling remains were provided another jolt of life today. Casio Radioshack Concertmate 680 Patch 89… when they were purchased by another business that prepares to relaunch the once-great merchant as an online-focused brand.
The shop’s remains were purchased 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 website currently has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the business is “positive” it can further raise awareness of the brand internationally.
REV claims it’s effectively turned around other business it’s released as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its profits in between the 2nd and first quarter of 2020.
RadioShack was founded in 1921 and ended up being a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody seeking to get tech basics. For a long period of time, that meant actual radio parts, but wound up consisting of great deals of electronic toys (one Verge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes declined significantly as online shopping arrived, and the business declared bankruptcy two times in the past five years. RadioShack still accredits its name to third-party “authorized” shops and offers top quality items within some areas of HobbyTown, a crafts merchant– similar to how you can still discover “Sharper Image” items at Kohl’s despite the fact that that seller shut its physical doors over a decade back. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would remain. Casio Radioshack Concertmate 680 Patch 89
REV says it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s website. For those of you still clinging on to fond memories of the shop, there’ll be a familiar sufficient place to go when you want to purchase overpriced HDMI cables and knockoff headphones.
