Radioshack Plaza San Marcos 2022

In terms of this post and Radioshack Plaza San Marcos…Radio Shack a number of you probably think the shop has been gone for years after all the company filed for personal bankruptcy in 2015 and closed most company-owned shops a couple of years later the key word there is company-owned shops dealer stores that were owned by independent company owner remained open one of them happened to be within an hour and a half drive at my area brand-new holland pennsylvania amish country here’s some shots of the beyond the radio shack what i truly liked is how the building sort of resembled a real shack here’s the within the radio shack it looks precisely as i remember practically any type of electronic or device can think about this store probably has the very first wall included a bunch of cb radios and antennas the wall behind the counter held batteries and chargers as some of you most likely keep in mind to the right of the counter was a wall with some antennas featuring the notorious antenna i inform people not to purchase but they buy it anyway for those of you who are not familiar with what i think about this design here is a short clip this model it’s scrap junk

What happened to RadioShack? Radioshack Plaza San Marcos

scrap this piece of junk [Music] the design was really installed outdoors and hooked into a tv set i went through the channels and just as i anticipated it was not getting the abc affiliate whtm which transmits on the vhf band this antenna model is known to not carry out well for vhf what’s so ironic is behind the structures were some actually great older antenna models despite my criticism of this antenna model i can understand why the owners decide to offer and show it it’s smaller sized and more customer friendly the average person does not desire a big antenna on their roofing in spite of the better efficiency or in this case acquiring the harrisburg abc affiliate the next design over had walkie-talkies and some diodes the next style had pretty much any type of av cable and adapter imaginable this utilized to be my preferred section since i’m also a wedding event videographer and often times i would go to a wedding event and forget a particular audio cable required for the microphone during the ceremony and there ‘d always be a radio shack close-by i might stop at sadly that’s no longer the case another aisle featured fuses battery ports and a lot of wires here’s a wall of transistors and would you think devices for installing an outdoor antenna installing brackets amplifiers and even a rotator as i continued down the very same wall there were video cables and devices some two-way radios phone wires phones themselves and smart device accessories including this actually cool bluetooth cassette adapter it can’t be a radio shack without radios take a look at all of them styles in the middle of the shop had vehicle stereo accessories speaker wire ethernet cable televisions computer cable televisions blank media and whoa blank cassette tapes at this radio shack i can literally buy a cassette deck record onto a blank cassette and if the heads get filthy
