RadioShack Opens Third Concept Store In New York Area; Begins Rolling Out New, Scalable Store Format Around The Country

Among the first to get this fresh new look are the mall stores in Manhattan Mall in New York and Plaza Las Americas in Hato Rey, Puerto Rico, both of which opened in July. RadioShack began testing the new "low touch" format, which requires minimal investment with maximum impact for consumers, in May at a "living lab" located on Camp Bowie Blvd in Fort Worth, Texas.

"Low touch" stores reflect a cleaner, brighter environment; visually appealing open floor plans with low-profile fixtures; powerful brand statements around ownable business categories; improved product placement – with headphones, speakers and digital fitness greeting customers at the front and mobile phones displayed by manufacturer with accessories along the wall; a generous DIY section to serve the Maker movement; fresh new merchandising featuring lifestyle images; and the refined product assortment the company has discussed in recent weeks.

"In the short time since opening our initial concept stores and the living lab in Fort Worth, we've learned a tremendous amount about how to make our stores more shoppable. We're creating a place to discover ways technology makes your life more fun with a selection just right for your lifestyle," Magnacca added. "Loyal customers who have been shopping us for years will have an easier, more satisfying experience in the store and new customers will be amazed at the innovation in exclusive product lines, hot destination brands and in-demand mobile options we offer to a new generation of shoppers."
