Electronics retailer Radio Shack is teaming up with hardware manufacturer and accelerator PCH International to bring 6 square-foot “Powered by PCH” retail spaces to stores in the United States. This area will feature hardware startups that work directly with PCH’s accelerator, PCH Access, to bring their products to retail after incubation.
The partnership will be called Radio Shack Labs and will reach stores by the end of the year. Makers can submit their products to Radio Shack Labs online.
