Bright Sun Films on the death and possible rebirth of RadioShack, a tale of the Retail Apocalypse

I promised to revisit Radio Shack at the end of Charlotte Russe liquidating, a tale of the Retail Apocalypse and again at the end of Tesla makes a U-turn on closing stores while Musk defends tweet before judge, a tale of the Retail Apocalypse, when I wrote "tomorrow."  Well, that's today, so I present Bright Sun Films Abandoned - RadioShack.

After over 80 years in business and the worlds largest electronic store retailer, today I explore how this billion dollar company which revolutionized the electronic store market, eventually came tumbling down into its eventual bankruptcy in the same vein as Circuit City. Let's take a look at the history of RadioShack.
That is a more complete history than the one from Company Man.  That stopped in 2017 just as the chain closed up shop, literally.  Bright Sun Films shows that, just like Twinkies, the name lives on under new ownership; it's too valuable to die.

That's it for this installment of Tales of the Retail Apocalypse.  Stay tuned for a series of holiday entries, as tomorrow is Pi Day, Friday is the Ides of March, Sunday is St. Patrick's Day, next Wednesday is both Purim and the Vernal Equinox, next Thursday is Nowruz and the birthday of both Twitter and this blog, and next Friday is World Water Day.  There will be little time for DOOM other than this Friday.  Beware The Ides of March!
