RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another shock of life today. Radioshack Chalmette Store Hours… when they were acquired by another business that plans to relaunch the once-great seller as an online-focused brand.
The shop’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 also, consisting of Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Product, Dressbarn, and more. REV states RadioShack’s website already has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the business is “positive” it can even more raise awareness of the brand internationally.
REV declares it’s successfully turned around other business it’s introduced as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its income in between the very first and second quarter of 2020.
RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody aiming to grab tech essentials. For a long period of time, that indicated real radio components, however wound up consisting of great deals of electronic toys (one Edge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes declined vastly as online shopping showed up, and the business applied for personal bankruptcy two times in the past five years. RadioShack still accredits its name to third-party “authorized” stores and sells branded products within some areas of HobbyTown, a crafts merchant– similar to how you can still discover “Sharper Image” products at Kohl’s although that seller shut its physical doors over a years ago. REV didn’t state whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Radioshack Chalmette Store Hours
