RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another jolt of life today. Radioshack Port Angeles… when they were bought by another business that plans to relaunch the once-great seller as an online-focused brand name.

The shop’s remains were purchased by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV), a start-up founded in 2019 that’s been scooping up brands from other faded retail giants as well, including Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Dressbarn, and more. REV says RadioShack’s website currently has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the company is “positive” it can even more raise awareness of the brand worldwide.

REV declares it’s successfully turned around other companies it’s introduced as online brand names. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its profits between the first and 2nd quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was founded in 1921 and ended up being a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anyone seeking to get tech basics. For a very long time, that implied real radio components, but wound up consisting of lots of electronic toys (one Edge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and ultimately phones. Its fortunes decreased greatly as online shopping showed up, and the company declared insolvency two times in the past 5 years. RadioShack still certifies its name to third-party “authorized” stores and offers top quality products within some areas of HobbyTown, a crafts retailer– comparable to how you can still discover “Sharper Image” products at Kohl’s although that retailer shut its physical doors over a years earlier. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stay. Radioshack Port Angeles

REV says it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s website. For those of you still clinging on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar enough place to go when you want to buy costly HDMI cables and knockoff headphones.
