    This is good news "IF" they keep the same (and expanded) product lines. For example, I used to buy all my audio cables from there. They were of greatly superior quality than the major brands at the time (like Monster, for example) but at a significantly lower price.

    Full discloser - I used to work part time as a TV and audio tech and RS salesman at an independent RadioShack franchise way back in the 70s in Litchfield Park, Arizona. It was actually called Sage & Sand TV but they also sold RadioShack products - at least until RS demanded they go full RS or no RS. They went no RS.

    Brick and Mortar locations would be nice, but they are very expensive in terms of overhead and distribution logistics. I don't see it happening.
