RadioShack continues to make significant strides in all five areas of our turnaround plan – most visibly through our new brand, updated stores and new product assortment.
In 2013, the company made improvements to nearly all 4,300 U.S. company-owned stores. This includes more than 100 concept and brand statement stores, which feature bright, completely redesigned interiors and the new exterior signage featuring the company’s new look, incorporating interactive areas designed to help shoppers improve their technology profile. The company also completed a major reset of 2,000 locations with brighter, updated interiors including new paint and merchandising. All stores completed a product refresh during the same period, creating a cleaner shopping environment and making room for must-have products. All of these improvements underscore the company’s strides toward reinvigorating our stores, revamping our product assortment and repositioning the brand.
The company continues to focus on international and non-traditional retail expansion through our Franchise and Retail Services organization. In addition to corporate stores in the U.S. and Mexico, the company operates approximately 1,000 domestic and global locations through franchise and distribution agreements. This includes the first international concept store, which opened in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, at the end of October 2013. A partnership with the National Association of College Stores (NACS) resulted in opening stores-within-a-store at more than a dozen college bookstores.
