Re: Radio Shack

I thought Radio Shack went out of business years ago. I'm surprised they are still in business. There is no Radio Shack in any of the towns near me. No Shake Shack either, but that is another story.

If the little guys are successful, they usually get bought by the big guys. sometimes a medium guy will buy a big guy and keep the big guy's name (e.g. Bank of America).
