In the past, Radioshack was a viable alternative to big box retailers like Best Buy and Circuit City, when looking for electronics and accessories. Its smaller footprint model enabled RadioShack to open more stores where big box retailers couldn't access as easily. In more recent years, it's attempted to make a push into the smartphone market.
As online shopping continues to grow, Radioshack hasn't been able to match the competitive pricing of pure play etailers like Amazon and Newegg, or its brick and mortar competitors like Best Buy. When comparing Frontpage deals on site in 2013, we see Radioshack has 20 compared to several thousand from Amazon in the same timeframe.
When's the last time you purchased something from Radioshack, either online or in store?
