RadioShack’s shambling remains were given another jolt of life today. Usb A To Mini-b 8 Pin Cable Radioshack… when they were acquired by another business that prepares to relaunch the once-great seller as an online-focused brand.
The store’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 website currently has “strong existing sales and sales potential,” and the business is “positive” it can further raise awareness of the brand globally.
REV claims it’s effectively reversed other business it’s launched as online brand names. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dressbarn more than doubled its revenue in between the second and first quarter of 2020.
RadioShack was founded in 1921 and became a retail staple in the ’80s and ’90s for anybody wanting to grab tech essentials. For a very long time, that implied actual radio components, but wound up including great deals of electronic toys (one Brink editor fondly remembers his Armatron) and eventually phones. Its fortunes decreased greatly as online shopping arrived, and the company filed for bankruptcy two times in the past 5 years. RadioShack still certifies its name to third-party “authorized” shops and sells branded products within some places of HobbyTown, a crafts seller– similar to how you can still find “Sharper Image” products 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. Usb A To Mini-b 8 Pin Cable Radioshack
REV states it will “quickly relaunch” RadioShack’s site. So for those of you still clinging on to fond memories of the store, there’ll be a familiar sufficient location to go when you want to purchase overpriced HDMI cable televisions and knockoff earphones.
