RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another jolt of life today. Chromecast Radioshack… when they were bought by another business that plans to relaunch the once-great retailer 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 as well, consisting of Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Dressbarn, and more. REV says RadioShack’s site already has “strong existing sales and sales potential,” and the business is “confident” it can further raise awareness of the brand name globally.

REV claims it’s successfully turned around other companies it’s launched as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its income between the second and first quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anyone aiming to get tech fundamentals. For a long period of time, that suggested actual radio parts, but wound up consisting of great deals of electronic toys (one Edge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and ultimately phones. Its fortunes declined greatly as online shopping showed up, and the company filed for bankruptcy two times in the past 5 years. RadioShack still accredits its name to third-party “authorized” stores and sells branded products within some locations of HobbyTown, a crafts seller– similar to how you can still discover “Sharper Image” products at Kohl’s although that seller shut its physical doors over a decade ago. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Chromecast Radioshack

REV says it will “quickly relaunch” RadioShack’s website. For those of you still sticking on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar sufficient place to go when you want to purchase expensive HDMI cable televisions and knockoff earphones.
