Find Radioshack Roma 2022 | PST

 

RadioShack’s shambling remains were provided another jolt of life today. Radioshack Roma… when they were bought by another company that plans to relaunch the once-great retailer as an online-focused brand name.

The store’s remains were bought by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV), a startup founded in 2019 that’s been scooping up brand names from other faded retail giants as well, including Pier 1, Modell’s Sporting Item, Dressbarn, and more. REV states RadioShack’s website currently has “strong existing sales and sales potential,” and the company is “positive” it can further raise awareness of the brand name globally.

REV declares it’s effectively reversed other companies it’s launched as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its profits between the 2nd and first quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was established in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody looking to grab tech essentials. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stick around. Radioshack Roma

REV says it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still clinging on to fond memories of the shop, there’ll be a familiar sufficient place to go when you wish to purchase expensive HDMI cables and knockoff earphones.
