RadioShack’s shambling remains were offered another jolt of life today. Drivers And Setup Software For Radioshack Digital Photo Viewer… when they were bought by another company that plans to relaunch the once-great retailer as an online-focused brand name.
The shop’s remains were purchased by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV), a start-up 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 states RadioShack’s website currently has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the company is “positive” it can further raise awareness of the brand internationally.
REV declares it’s effectively turned around other companies it’s introduced as online brand names. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its earnings between the 2nd and first quarter of 2020.
RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anyone looking to grab tech fundamentals. For a long time, that implied real radio components, but ended up consisting of great deals of electronic toys (one Brink editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes decreased greatly as online shopping got here, and the business applied for insolvency two times in the past five years. RadioShack still accredits its name to third-party “authorized” shops and offers top quality items within some locations of HobbyTown, a crafts merchant– similar to how you can still discover “Sharper Image” items at Kohl’s despite the fact that that merchant shut its physical doors over a years back. REV didn’t state whether those RadioShack licenses would remain. Drivers And Setup Software For Radioshack Digital Photo Viewer
REV says it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s website. So for those of you still sticking on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar adequate location to go when you want to buy expensive HDMI cable televisions and knockoff headphones.
