RadioShack’s shambling remains were provided another jolt of life today. Radioshack Remote Codes 15-2118… when they were acquired by another business 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 start-up founded in 2019 that’s been scooping up brands from other faded retail giants also, consisting of Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Product, Dressbarn, and more. REV says RadioShack’s website already has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the company is “positive” it can further raise awareness of the brand internationally.
REV declares it’s successfully reversed other companies it’s launched as online brand names. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its profits between the first and second quarter of 2020.
RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody wanting to get tech fundamentals. For a very long time, that meant actual radio parts, however wound up including lots of electronic toys (one Edge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes decreased greatly as online shopping arrived, and the company filed for insolvency two times in the past 5 years. RadioShack still accredits its name to third-party “authorized” stores and sells top quality items within some places of HobbyTown, a crafts merchant– comparable to how you can still discover “Sharper Image” items at Kohl’s although that merchant shut its physical doors over a decade back. REV didn’t state whether those RadioShack licenses would remain. Radioshack Remote Codes 15-2118
REV says it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s website. So for those of you still clinging on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar sufficient place to go when you want to purchase pricey HDMI cables and knockoff headphones.
