Find Radioshack Roebling Market 2022 | PST

 

RadioShack’s shambling remains were provided another shock of life today. Radioshack Roebling Market… when they were purchased by another business that plans to relaunch the once-great merchant as an online-focused brand name.

The shop’s remains were purchased by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV), a startup founded in 2019 that’s been scooping up brand names from other faded retail giants too, consisting of Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Item, Dressbarn, and more. REV says RadioShack’s site currently has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the business is “positive” it can further raise awareness of the brand globally.

REV declares it’s effectively turned around other companies it’s launched as online brand names. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its income between the first and second quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anyone looking to get tech fundamentals. For a very long time, that indicated real radio parts, but ended up including great deals of electronic toys (one Edge editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes decreased significantly as online shopping showed up, and the company filed for bankruptcy two times in the past 5 years. RadioShack still licenses its name to third-party “authorized” shops and offers top quality items within some places of HobbyTown, a crafts merchant– comparable to how you can still find “Sharper Image” items at Kohl’s even though that retailer shut its physical doors over a years ago. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would remain. Radioshack Roebling Market

REV says it will “quickly relaunch” RadioShack’s website. So for those of you still sticking on to fond memories of the shop, there’ll be a familiar enough location to go when you want to purchase overpriced HDMI cable televisions and knockoff headphones.
