(I wasn't sure where to post this, so I hope this is OK here.)

Seems there's going to be a HUGE change in the retail electronics field in Canada:

http://corpinfo.radioshack.com/companyinfo/Internet_Html_Pages/footer.asp?x=447257517G

It seems that InterTan has lost the rights to use the RadioShack name, and is now going by a version of their parent corporation's name.

The old Radio Shack Canada website (radioshack.ca) offers news on it, as does the eventual Source by Circuit City website.(sourcecc.com)

Comments?

Ah, my hapless employer. CC's owned Intertan for a bit now and doesn't want to swap names: RadioShack sued to stop them from using their name, and CC fought it and lost several months ago. Last I heard CC told us they were fighting it, but apparently they plan to lose the appeal.

Given the status of both electronics chains in the minds of the public (at least from a red, white and blue point of view; hard to say how it is north of Minnesota) CC should be trying to sneak the Best Buy name in there somewhere.

Service plans have to be honored even if the company as a whole goes out of business. Usually a portion of the cost is placed into an insurance company to not only underwrite the cost of repairs or replacement for the store, but also to ensure that if the company isn't there to administer it that you get results.

I'm right now rehearsing for Odd Couple, which he helped debut on Broadway, I believe. Gleason was a comedy monster, but Carney was a perfect foil. Just As lively a physical comedian and as rubbery as Jim Carrey or Steve Martin or Martin Short.
