Radio Shack, Dutch Square: 12 April 2011   11 comments

Posted at 10:59 pm in stores

Radio Shack has been at Dutch Square since the mall opened, though not always in this location. I'm a bit hazy on the old layout, but think the original site was a bit further up the hill towards Tapp's. At any rate, as reported by commenter Andrew some time ago, they have now relocated this store from Dutch Square to the new Wal-Mart plaza, Bush River Village.

I believe this pull-out leaves The Rogue hair stylist as the only store which has been in the mall from the beginning.

  1. Wow, that feels like the end of an era. I worked there in the late 90's and recall it being in that same location. There used to be a Cromer's next to it (which later became some odd store with cheap imported goods). When it was Cromer's. they had monkeys, and occasionally we could smell them. Gross.

    That RadioShack store did good business until that mall totally fell apart.

  2. I recall seeing my first LCD desktop clock at this RS location in the early 70s. RS always had the fascinating new electronic wonderland gizmos and gadgets on display. 40 years in one mall is an accomplishment.

  3. Didn't this RS move to Bush River Village just down the road? i.e. where the Wal-Mart is.

  5. I'm surprised it lasted this long in it's current location.

  6. I want to say they started directly next to White's (if you exited the store and looked right) directly across from where the Pet Store/Barrel of Fun was located. I think they've always been on that side of the mall, never located on the Tapp's side.

    Chris, an "odd store with cheap imported goods" could describe 25% of the stores in there, but I remember the one you refered to. Prior to that it was a shoe store located across from Eckerd's. It was located on the corner and you could enter from two sides. There was also a cheap imported goods store almost directly across from the Radio Shack.

  7. Jonathan, I think you are right, RS used to be the first store to the right as you came out of JB White's. I think Barrel of Fun was directly across. I seem to recall that location was a little bigger than the one RS last occupied.

  8. The RS was on the JB Whites side. I remember when the RS salespeople would get bored they would race RC cars up the mail and trip the Whites customers.

  10. And Andrew nobody cared....or noticed that this speciality jeweler was even in the Dutch square mall for 3 years!

  11. I didn't realize Merrit's only lasted 3 years...I do know that a computer repair operation is open in their old spot...but just as the old Merrit's gets filled, Claire's and Fashions Unlimited have closed their Dutch Square stores...
