A couple weeks ago we addressed the rumors and news speculating that RadioShack, the national corporation, isn't doing well. Those rumors remain today and have been gaining momentum so we would like to speak to you again regarding this subject.
Technology Services of Iowa (TSI), is a local company that is affiliated with KCTC (Kalona Cooperative Telephone Company), and TSI been in business since 2007. As TSI, we've operated in the past and continue to operate today, not only as a RadioShack dealer but also as iTech, your local technology experts. In a nutshell, this means that we buy some of our inventory from corporate RadioShack to resell locally. Since our inception, we have never had an exclusive partnership with RadioShack. This has allowed us the freedom to partner with many other companies and vendors to bring top quality merchandise and electronics to the Kalona area and to you, our valued customers. As such, if any of the rumors regarding corporate RadioShack come true, then we will continue to operate locally with zero interruptions and we'll continue to serve our community just like we have since 2007.
We want to be very clear on these subjects. As of today, everything you're seeing and reading regarding RadioShack, is rumor and/or speculation. There have been no official announcements from RadioShack and they are continuing operations today as they have for the last 94 years. Secondly, if these rumors do come true, Technology Services of IA, our local company, will continue to operate as usual and we are looking forward to continued growth of our business and in serving our community.
As is always the case, if you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at (319) 656-1234.
