RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another shock of life today. Radioshack Human Resources Contact Information… 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 acquired by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV), a start-up founded in 2019 that’s been scooping up brands from other faded retail giants also, consisting of Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Item, Dressbarn, and more. REV says RadioShack’s website currently has “strong existing sales and sales potential,” and the company is “positive” it can further raise awareness of the brand globally.
REV claims it’s effectively turned around other business it’s released as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its profits 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 aiming to grab tech essentials. For a very long time, that implied real radio components, but wound up including lots of electronic toys (one Brink editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes declined greatly as online shopping got here, and the company applied for insolvency twice in the past 5 years. RadioShack still certifies its name to third-party “licensed” stores and offers top quality products within some areas of HobbyTown, a crafts retailer– comparable to how you can still discover “Sharper Image” items at Kohl’s although that seller shut its physical doors over a years back. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Radioshack Human Resources Contact Information
REV states it will “quickly relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still sticking on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar enough place to go when you want to buy pricey HDMI cables and knockoff headphones.
