Previously on The Shack Blog, we reached out and asked you to help us update our selection of DIY pieces and parts by telling us three products you would like to be able to purchase at RadioShack. We were humbled by the responses – over 500 comments here on The Shack Blog, and hundreds elsewhere on the Internet. Here’s the video as a reminder:
Over the past two months, our DIY team read through every single comment and suggestion and compiled a list of the top ten improvements that YOU requested. Here’s the list:
2. More Kits and Project Suggestions
3. More introduction/instructional books
4. Larger assortment in LEDs
5. Wider variety in resistors
6. TONS more capacitors
7. DIY audio and speaker equipment
8. HAM radio gear
9. More competitive pricing
10. Stronger sales force
We’re pleased to let you know that we’re actively working on every single one of these. We already have a great selection of Velleman kits available today, as well as a collection of Forrest Mims instructional books. Getting the new products and wider assortments will take a bit of time, but definitely keep an eye out for additional products. We are also in the process of ramping up our in-store training so our Associates can better help you find the products you need. In addition, our merchandising team is working to lower prices as much as possible without sacrificing the quality you expect from RadioShack parts.
Thanks again for the awesome feedback! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out The Great Create for a great selection of projects built with RadioShack parts and pieces. You can also get information on how to submit your own project while you’re there.
