Don't see how it can be bad...
What examples are there of zombie brand names succeeding after corporate death?
To my immediate recollection, it hasn't really worked for: Polaroid, Radio Shack, Blackberry, Kodak, and Palm.
Wish the Sharper Image stores would come back. Had a great time shopping there.
Commodore and Atari are doing ok
These idiots don’t even have the @compusa twitter handle. @dealcentral has zero toots. Derp
I mean, yeah, I guess they're ongoing business concerns that haven't re-killed the brand. But did something really "Atari" or "Commodore" get created? I'm not aware of anything from them that's a phoenix rising from the ashes to rebuild its former greatness: just a nostalgia-fueled milking of the brandname by selling cheap retro retread products.
Contrast to Nintendo which both sells nostalgia but is also presently better than it's ever been before.
I miss walking around CompUSA (formerly Computer City) and looking at all the different pre-built PCs and components. Those were the days.
Yep, that was *the* computer store in the '90s when I was in Rochester. Before BestBuy came along and ate their lunch, back when FYE could sell CD's in the mall for $17.99, CompUSA was a great way to window shop, lusting for a screaming Pentium 90!
