About Radio Shack    
The story of RadioShack begins in 1919 in Fort Worth, Texas, with a chance meeting of two friends, Norton Hinckley and Dave L. Tandy (1889-1966). During their visit, these ambitious young fellows decided to pool their resources and go into business together. Their venture, which the two gentlemen named the Hinckley-Tandy Leather Company, sold leather shoe parts (soles, heels and shoelaces) to shoe repair shops in the Fort Worth area. Although the partners had no way of knowing it at the time, their humble beginning would evolve into RadioShack Corporation e a multifaceted, multibillion dollar company, and one of the nation's largest retailers of consumer electronics. Fort Worth, Texas-based RadioShack Corporation (NYSE: RSH) is today the nationes most trusted consumer electronics specialty retailer of wireless communications, electronic parts, batteries and accessories as well as other digital technology products and services. With more than 7,000 outlets nationwide, it is estimated that 94 percent of all Americans live or work within five minutes of a RadioShack store or dealer.
