Wither Radio Shack

Comments (4)

Is it “whither” or “wither?”  I guess you’ll have to read the Onion article titled Even CEO Can’t Figure Out How RadioShack Still In Business to determine which it is (hint – both?)  I’m not a daily reader of The Onion – I rely on my friend Dave (who I think reads it cover to cover – or “every page” in webspeak) to send me the ones that will make me laugh.  This article is a perfect description of the anacronism that is RadioShack.  (Thanks Amy, Maureen, and Dave for the editorial, grammatical, and content help.)  And thanks RadioShack for all of those gold tipped cables and wide array of battery choices.

    I was down in Radio Shack’s new HQ in Ft. Worth a few weeks ago. It is quite an impressive campus. You may be surprised to know that in Puerto Rico, Radio Shack is the leading electronics retailer. They do have pockets of locations where they do sell TVs and stuff like that.

    Time after time, I have gone to Best Buy for what should be a relatively common item (most recently a basic power strip), only to be told (often after 15-20 minutes of the employee searching), “We don’t carry that, but I’m pretty sure RadioShack does.” At this point, if I am looking for something that I have any suspicion might be just slightly out of the ordinary, I just save myself a trip and go to RadioShack.
