RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another jolt of life today. Radioshack Hoverbot… when they were purchased by another company that prepares to relaunch the once-great seller 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 also, consisting of Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Dressbarn, and more. REV says RadioShack’s site already has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the company is “confident” it can further raise awareness of the brand name worldwide.

REV claims it’s successfully reversed other companies it’s released as online brand names. 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 anyone seeking to grab tech basics. For a long time, that suggested real radio parts, but ended up including 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 business declared bankruptcy two times in the past five years. RadioShack still certifies its name to third-party “authorized” stores and sells branded items within some locations of HobbyTown, a crafts merchant– similar to how you can still find “Sharper Image” items at Kohl’s despite the fact that that retailer shut its physical doors over a years ago. REV didn’t state whether those RadioShack licenses would remain. Radioshack Hoverbot

REV states it will “quickly relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still sticking on to fond memories of the shop, there’ll be a familiar enough place to go when you wish to buy overpriced HDMI cables and knockoff earphones.
