Where less is more... – As much as I love mega electronic stores like J & R and Best Buy sometimes I am just not in the mood for huge stores and crazy crowds. Sometimes I just want to run in and run out and I don’t want to have to make a “day of it.” That is when I run into Radio Shack. These stores, unlike some other electronic stores have been around forever. They carry everything from cell phones, to computers and flat screen TV’s and they always offer a few brands of each.
On my last visit I was returning a cell phone adaptor that my sister got me for my iPod. It was one of those adaptors where you plug t into your cigarette lighter and you can play music through your car speakers. We’ll the hubbie decided to spin it around and around while it was in the cigarette lighter and this caused it to break.
I took a trip into Radio Shack the next day sans receipt and guess what? Yup, they were super nice and let me exchange it, no questions asked. The gentleman at the counter helped me locate a replacement, then had me fill out some information on a printed out piece of paper and sent me on my way. The transaction was not in the least bit stressful and I appreciate that. In my opinion, some stores are getting ridiculous with their return policy but thankfully Radio Shack is not one of them.
Radio Shack may have less than all the others, but sometimes less is more and this is one of those times.
When it comes to selection, the Kmart of electronics carries practically every tech goody under the sun. – In Short
While the name dates back to the invention of the radio at the turn of the 20th century, today the electronic store offers a myriad of modern technological finds. With equipment ranging from the latest crop of cell phones, digital cameras, batteries, and various accessories for the home, car and office, the store can outfit even the most electronically-challenged shopper. The sales associates are dedicated, knowledgeable and quick to assist and answer any questions. And yes, you can still buy a radio there, too.
