RadioShack’s shambling remains were provided another shock of life today. Headphone Replacement Pads Radioshack… when they were purchased by another business that prepares to relaunch the once-great seller as an online-focused brand.
The store’s remains were acquired by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV), a start-up founded in 2019 that’s been scooping up brand names from other faded retail giants as well, consisting of Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Product, Dressbarn, and more. REV states RadioShack’s site currently has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the company is “confident” it can further raise awareness of the brand globally.
REV declares it’s successfully 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 second quarter of 2020.
RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anyone looking to get tech basics. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Headphone Replacement Pads Radioshack
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 overpriced HDMI cable televisions and knockoff earphones.
