Two years ago today we were still able to shop at a RadioShack in the UK.
The store was in Saint Annes on the Sea on the Fylde Coast and after I discovered it I shopped there every time I visited the seaside town.
Sadly it closed in 2019.
|This RadioShack was the last of its kind in the UK. Note the Tandy sign in the top left of the window|
Working at TandyMy first job was at a Tandy franchise shop in Abingdon, Oxfordshire where I remember selling a number of electronic products bearing the 'RadioShack', 'Genexxa' and 'Realistic' brand names.
It's always fun spotting old brands & signage and a treat when it's something rare like Tandy.
Tandy said goodbye to the UK high street in 2001 as the last of the shops was converted after acquisition by Carphone Warehouse.
