Radio Shack was once my favorite store on the planet. I still have sealed boxes of the mini-robot that was one closeout when they were shutting down. I’m very encouraged by the Tai Lopez interview and would be thrilled to see a neighborhood Radio Shack in any form, but especially one with Maker products to educate and entertain a new generation, and my own.
