First correct answer wins a year's supply of free Radio Shack batteries (subject to availability). ☺☺☺
We'll be breaking new RSH lows this week - I can just feel it! ☺☺☺
(What they do) They smile in your face all the time they wanna take your place the back stabbers (back stabbers)
More like MacArthur Park - Someone left the cake out in the rain I don't think that I can take it 'cause it took so long to bake it and I'll never have that recipe again Oh, nooo!
Thirty seven years make for a mighty dusty movie. Is Smokey even available on DVD??? ☺☺☺
Danzey is probably watching Smokey and the Bandit right now as we speak. ☺☺☺
Don't let the doorknob hit ya' where the good Lord split ya'! ☺☺☺
"Excited by the prospect of throwing some much-needed revenue its way, RadioShack was the first site I visited to look for a new battery."
Did you get yourself a Woody at the prospect of contributing to RSH's coffers??? ☺☺☺
Don't you know? The internet is just a flash in the pan - here today, gone tomorrow. TUES management is wisely ignoring this phenomena with the purpose of conserving TUES capital. Trust them. The internet will not affect Tuesday Morning. ☺☺☺
HGG is down 32% for the year compared to RSH -68%. Online retailing is killing off all but the best retailers. You can't beat online ordering for convenience, price, and selection. I recently purchased a wireless cable modem and I got it for about half of what I would have paid at Best Buy or Radio Shack. (I did go for what was supposed to be a 'used' modem but was instead a brand new brown box special.)
Some of Radio Shack's problems are of their own making. Their stores are too small. Their sales clerks are too pushy. Their prices are too high. On the other hand, people are just very comfortable with shopping in their P.J.'s and buying online. There's no traffic, no trouble finding a parking space, and it's so quick. Suggested selling can be done online but it's much more subtle. Going to the store to buy something is like using a pay phone - it gets the job done but it's so inconvenient. ☺☺☺
