RadioShack’s shambling remains were provided another jolt of life today. Radioshack Human Resources Contact… when they were bought by another company that prepares to relaunch the once-great merchant 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, including Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Product, Dressbarn, and more.
