Radio Shack, like so many of America's original great companies, was born and lived long and prospered during its glory days, then eventually waned into insignificance and obsolescence within the last decade or so.

The company was bought by Tandy Corporation in the 1960s, then sold to hedge fund operator General Wireless in the mid 2000s. Radio Shack filed for bankruptcy last year and the few remaining outlets are now run by Sprint.
