Radio Shack was actually where I bought my first PC (IBM Aptiva) but I don’t think I have any tears to shed for the retailer, as they never did a great job of innovating and competing with their rivals. While the franchise will live on through its online storefront, many of the brick-and-mortar stores that have managed to stay standing will be now be going away. They are actually auctioning off a bunch of "nostalgic memorabilia" from their historic archives in Fort Worth, Texas: these include unused original TRS-80 Microcomputers, Realistic Transistor Radios, Tandy computer software games, and original brick cell phones. At its peak, RadioShack operated over 7,300 stores with retail sales and operating revenue in the billions of dollars and its locations were famously within 3 miles of more than 95% of households across America. This Memorial Day Weekend, we will be closing over 1,000 stores, leaving less than 70 corporate and 500 RadioShack dealer stores around the country. With 96 years of history, go say goodbye to the RadioShack in your neighborhood. This weekend you still have an opportunity to come visit your nearby store for your electronic needs at great liquidation sale prices, before we close the doors for good.
