I personally like Radio Shack for the occassional electronic component need, hard to find readily available anywhere else except online. The problem is that they are a very narrow niche store who has not changed their business model much in 30 years. I do not know what the fix is, or if there even is one at this point, but like Einstein supposed said, doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is not going to work for them

The biggest problem with radio shak was their pricing it was outrageously high the prices they charged for cables or anything would make you go ouch….even the one who worked there said the same thing. The online amazon and other brands prices were far better and for that reason they have lost the battle.. You can only gouge the public for so long before they bolt.

Got to agree with other comment about gouging.You would think,that with a limited number of items,in thousands of stores.RS would be the biggest buyer,of those items,get the best prices and pass it on to the customer.Instead,they decide to accept lower sales and try to make it up in massive margins.That doesn’t work,when everyone has internet access to shop price.This isn’t 1980.
