“RadioShack Corp. is looking for a few good gadgets.
The consumer-electronics retailer, with 7,100 stores on street corners and in malls all over the U.S., has long provided Americans with trendy electronics.”
“Now, after a couple of lean years and a misplaced bet on broadband services, it is angling to spot new trends sooner and work with inventors of small, innovative gadgets to jointly develop products.”
– This is a cool idea. Radio Shack gets a nice little reasearch team without huge investments. There is an opportunity here for small business owners to capatilize on too. I hope the are successful since it would encourage other chain’s to do the same thing. -ed.
