Submission + - Nine reasons RadioShack shouldn't change its name ( 1

Harry writes: "Rumor has it that RadioShack is planning to rebrand itself as The Shack later this year, after eighty-eight years under the old name (most of them with a space inbetween "Radio" and "Shack"). I hope it's not true, because I don't think the move would do a thing to make the retailer a better, more successful business."

Nine reasons RadioShack shouldn't change its name

  • For us old folks- Radio Shack.... or Ahem... Allied Radio has been dead and gone for a long time.

    Just try finding a high quality capacitor in that place. Their staff doesn't even know what they are.

    There was a time when you could get components through them for general electronics repair, breadboarding, and design. These days it's substandard computers and cell phones.

    I think the name change to "The Shack" is a good thing. They have nothing to do with Radio, and with the changed name thay can start selling

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
