RadioShack used to be the one-stop-shop for all things tech, but a lot has changed in the past few decades. Now, RadioShack looks to offer its goods to the world in a final bankruptcy-driven liquidation sale. So whether you want to take a trip down memory lane, are interested in the gadgets of yesteryear or just looking for something bizarre, RadioShack has you covered one last time.
It looks like RadioShack has finally caught up with the times and listed all its items online. Sadly it’s not what you’re thinking though. Rather than pivoting to an online-based retailer as an attempt to escape bankruptcy, RadioShack has begun its liquidation sale to clear out old inventory. While a majority of the items up for auction are from the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s, so many are timeless.
The very first items you’ll find is a metal RadioShack store sign, the very same that would have greeted you all those years ago. If you’re torn up about the loss of your favorite technology retailer, then picking this up is a great way to keep a piece of the store with you. You’ll also find versions of almost any computer that RadioShack released in the past four decades. So if you’re missing a few or want to start your very own vintage computer collection, now would be a great time to start.
Now if several-decade old tech gadgets weren’t enough to peak your interest, don’t you worry, RadioShack has you covered. If you’ve been searching for the perfect piece to fill that blank space on your wall, then look no further than this George H.W. Bush oil painting with artisanal beveled frame. There’s also a wide selection of portraits from RadioShack’s board of directors and other people you’ve probably never seen or heard of.
And oh boy is there tons of documentation. Not sure how to get that old radio in the garage working? Odds are there’s a manual for it. Need some new programs to load onto your prized TRS-80 computer? Well congratulations, today is your lucky day. You’ll also be able to choose from plenty of newsletters, magazines, catalogs and more.
Into sports? You’ll definitely want to add this stylish RadioShack-themed putter to your golf club arsenal. Or, if thats not quite in your wheelhouse, there’s also a Louisville Slugger, for some reason.
If these items haven’t got you feeling nostalgic, then take a look at the whole catalog yourself. Be warned, there’s over 500 listings, each one more obscure than the last. Regardless of if anything caught your eye, hopefully RadioShack was able to bring a little joy to your day for a final time.
