RadioShack Loma Linda CA
Theodore and Milton Deutschmann founded RadioShack in 1921 and opened up the first RadioShack store in Boston, MA selling electronic radio supplies to operators and hobbyists. By 1954, RadioShack had opened the first audio showroom with speakers, amplifiers, turntables and phonograph cartridges on display. They had also created their own private label under the Realistic brand. However, despite their success, RadioShack fell on hard times and the Tandy Corporation acquired the company in 1963. After acquiring RadioShack, Tandy Corporation decided to concentrate on the retail consumer electronics side of the business and divested all of their other non-electronics operations. RadioShack benefited from this decision and continued to expand and grow. They were the first retailers to offer one of the first mass produced personal computers manufactured by Tandy Corporation. The TRS-80 and subsequent TRS-80 Color Computers.
