Find Hobbytown Radioshack 2022 | PST

 

RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another shock of life today. Hobbytown Radioshack… when they were purchased by another business that prepares to relaunch the once-great retailer as an online-focused brand.

The shop’s remains were bought 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 says RadioShack’s website currently has “strong existing sales and sales potential,” and the business is “confident” it can even more raise awareness of the brand globally.

REV claims it’s successfully reversed other business it’s released as online brand names. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its revenue between the first and 2nd quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was established 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. Hobbytown Radioshack

REV states it will “quickly relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still clinging on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar adequate location to go when you wish to purchase overpriced HDMI cable televisions and knockoff headphones.
