RadioShack’s shambling remains were offered another jolt of life today. Radioshack Pilas… when they were acquired by another business that prepares to relaunch the once-great retailer as an online-focused brand.

The store’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, including Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Product, Dressbarn, and more. REV states RadioShack’s website currently has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the business is “confident” it can further raise awareness of the brand name worldwide.

REV declares it’s successfully reversed other companies it’s released as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its earnings in between the first and second quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was founded in 1921 and ended up being a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anyone aiming to get tech fundamentals. For a very long time, that implied actual radio elements, but ended up including lots of electronic toys (one Edge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and ultimately phones. Its fortunes declined vastly as online shopping arrived, and the business filed for insolvency twice in the past five years. RadioShack still certifies its name to third-party “authorized” stores and sells top quality products within some areas of HobbyTown, a crafts merchant– comparable 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 earlier. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Radioshack Pilas

REV states it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still clinging on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar enough location to go when you wish to buy expensive HDMI cables and knockoff headphones.
