It Took a While

In the earlier version of LaMarotte I’d posted multiple times on my problems with Radio Shack. Unfortunately that earlier version is no longer up. In any case, the slow decline of this once very competent retailer has been taking decades; presumably dissatisfied customers like me have numbered in the multiple hundreds of thousands. What is amazing about current news, stating that Radio Shack is preparing to go into bankruptcy as early as February, is how long it has taken.

Corporate collectives have life times not that much longer than humans. Radio Shack saw its beginnings in 1921, so it is 94 now. It will presumably live on, after bankruptcy, for a while anyway until, probably eaten by another one, it will gradually disappear.
