For as long as I could remember, Kingsgate Mall had a Radio Shack. Then, in 2005, I noticed the Radio Shack was gone, and its place, The Source by Circuit City.
I asked one of the Source by Circuit City staff where the Radio Shack went, and she replied, "It's complicated."
I shrugged, as if to say, Tell me more, but we were interrupted by a customer.
Radio Shack has a fascinating history, and a fairly accurate Wiki entry. For the story of how Radio Shack suddenly became The Source by Circuit City, scroll down to "International Operations/ Canada/ pre-2005."
