RadioShack opens new concept stores in Washington, D.C.

🕐 1 min read

RadioShack today announced the opening of 23 new interactive remodel stores in the Washington, D.C. metro area. RadioShack began remodeling and opening new concept stores across the country in July 2013, and has refreshed its more than 4,000 U.S. company-owned stores since then.

“The D.C. metro area has always been an important and loyal market for RadioShack, given the city’s strength in the technology sector. We are excited to launch an upgraded shopping experience at such a significant number of stores in the area,” said Mike DeFazio, senior vice president of store operations at RadioShack. “As we’ve opened more than 40 concept stores over the past year, customers have expressed their desire to interact with products before they buy, find personalized technology solutions and, of course, gain access to top brands. These interactive remodel stores represent what consumers should expect to see from the RadioShack brand.”

As part of the opening of these stores in the D.C. area, Fort Worth-based RadioShack is partnering with Byte Back, a nonprofit organization that provides economic opportunities for low-income Washington, D.C. residents through computer training and employment readiness skills. RadioShack is donating a portion of August 5 sales from the store location at 732 Seventh St. in Washington, D.C. to Byte Back programs.
