RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another jolt of life today. Radioshack Tuxtla Guti√©rrez… when they were bought by another company that prepares to relaunch the once-great merchant as an online-focused brand name.

The store’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 Item, Dressbarn, and more. REV says RadioShack’s site already has “strong existing sales and sales capacity,” and the company is “confident” it can even more raise awareness of the brand name worldwide.

REV claims it’s effectively turned around other companies it’s introduced as online brands. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its revenue between the 2nd and first quarter of 2020.

RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody seeking to get tech essentials. For a long time, that meant real radio components, but ended up including great deals of electronic toys (one Brink editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes decreased vastly as online shopping arrived, and the company applied for insolvency twice in the past five years. RadioShack still licenses its name to third-party “licensed” stores and offers branded products within some areas of HobbyTown, a crafts retailer– comparable to how you can still find “Sharper Image” products at Kohl’s despite the fact that that retailer shut its physical doors over a years ago. REV didn’t say whether those RadioShack licenses would stay. Radioshack Tuxtla Guti√©rrez

REV says it will “soon relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still sticking on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar sufficient location to go when you want to buy costly HDMI cable televisions and knockoff headphones.
