RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another jolt of life today. Radioshack Ipad Keyboard… when they were bought by another company that plans to relaunch the once-great seller as an online-focused brand.
The shop’s remains were bought by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV), a startup founded in 2019 that’s been scooping up brands from other faded retail giants too, consisting of Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Dressbarn, and more. REV states RadioShack’s site currently has “strong existing sales and sales potential,” and the company is “positive” it can further raise awareness of the brand name worldwide.
REV claims it’s effectively reversed other companies it’s launched as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its revenue between the very first and second quarter of 2020.
RadioShack was founded in 1921 and ended up being a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody looking to get tech basics. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Radioshack Ipad Keyboard
REV says it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s website. For those of you still sticking on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar sufficient location to go when you desire to buy overpriced HDMI cables and knockoff headphones.
