I miss Radio Shack's stores, but dulled my pain with these cool branded shirts

branded Radio Shack shirts
I have no idea who currently owns the Radio Shack brand, but if they keep delivering soft-goods, I'll always buy them!
I relied on Radio Shack for decades and loved their quirky products and all the insane connectors they sold. Everyone says you can find everything on the internet, but it's not the same as being able to hold it in your hand and make sure you're getting the right thing. I loved Radio Shack and miss them terribly.

Like all iconic brands, when the physical form leaves, the brands tend to live on via new ownership. Bands like Circuit City, Polaroid, and Atari still exist, but they have new companies behind the brands trying to leverage them as best they can.

I began seeing t-shirt ads from radio Shack during the holidays and decided to risk a purchase with the unknown owners. I picked up these two shirts from radio shack online. They have a few other designs from the battery club to TRS-80. Check it out!
