Dear Radio Shack
So business stinks. But when we go by to the store closest to our house, we can’t tell the difference between a Radio Shack and the Sprint store at the other end of the shopping center. We got a great comment on BrandlandUSA today about one of our posts on private brands at Radio Shack.
Phil Macarthur at oswegoradio.com writes to us and says:
The Flavoradio (model 12-166) (and the only pocket radio made in Korea for Radio Shack) was the longest running production radio ever built, 15 years (1972 – 1986). It made the cover of the March 2008 Antique Radio Classified.
So what’s the point? Radio Shack is missing a big part of its old business model when it doesn’t make its own proprietary products. Below, a few recent posts on Radio Shack.
