Find Champaign Radioshack 2022 | PST

 

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

The shop’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 too, including Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Dressbarn, and more. REV says 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 declares it’s successfully turned around other business it’s released as online brand names. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its income in between the 2nd and first quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was established in 1921 and ended up being a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody looking to grab tech fundamentals. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Champaign Radioshack

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