Don't know if this is Good move or a Move to hurt Radio Shack even more) But for me I like Radio shack for what it was back in ole Days Go in buy a Radio or Scanner or to buy parts for them.. hopefully this move doesn't hurt them even more..
Yea I seen this Last night hopefully they don't shut down the store in our Area.. there's one store in the Area that is an independent he sells Ham and Scanner Equipment no cell phones I don't thing he'll be going out of Business soon as long as there is a need for Ham Radios and Scanners, and around here being it be were in Tornado alley and other storms add in the Quakes & shakes were being hit with too I think scanner and Ham Traffic will increase in time not decrease..
I find it funny though. A company with Brand recognition problems, buying another company with Brand recognition problems. This isn't going to fix their problem.
Been watching some of that with Staples and Office po po I call em can't believe there just rapping things up or I guess they are with Office Maxx and Depot and now this we have one store in our town A officemaxx now that these two are in Talks what do we call them StaplesMaxx or Office-Staples-Depot Mart I'm silly I know but this just cracks me up...
I remember when OD had 1200 stores and stocks were $36/share. 5 years later it was 600 stores and $1 per share. Somehow with this acquisition, shares rose sharply. I would assume because investors and shareholders see this as a way to maintain some profit instead of loss.
Yup.. to me Office D Snn5 seemed to me to have a little more of a better Variety in the Computer and accessory area more also in computer related books than that of Office Maxx as for a staples never have been in one matter a fact not sure there is one Kansas.!
Update Done some Looking found a total of 3 in the Kansas City Area: there are Locations around Lenexa, Olathe, and one Close to Kansas City International.
As for Radio Shack there all over the Area the Manager I know at the Local store said that is what is hurting some of the Stores is on have one at a Location and Down the block or around the corner there is another one that is what she said is hurting some R.S. and why there closing some of them..
