1931

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is an annual event presented by the
department store chain Macy’s. The tradition started in 1924. Live animals
were borrowed from the Central Park Zoo to entertain the crowd at that first
parade, but were replaced with the giant balloons in 1927. Pictured above,

The three-hour Macy’s parade is held in New York City starting at 9:00 a.m.
EST and has been televised nationally on the NBC-TV network since 1952.

AN ELECTRONIC STORES BEGINNING

RADIO SHACK THN

The first custom concept store opened in the company’s hometown
of  Fort Worth, Texas. 

Radio Shack Corporation (formerly Tandy Corporation) is a franchise of
electronics retail stores in the United States, as well as parts of Europe,
South America and Africa. The company was started as Radio Shack in
1921 by two brothers,Theodore and Milton Deutschmann, who wanted
to provide equipment for the fans of amateur, or ham, radio. 

Radio Shack was purchased by the Tandy Corporation in 1962. It was
originally a leather goods corporation, and renamed Tandy Radio Shack
& Leather
. Tandy eventually divested itself of its non-electronic product
lines.

The company issued its first catalog in 1939. as it entered the high-fidelity
music market. In 1954, Radio Shack began selling its own private-label
products under the brand name Realist, but was subsequently sued and
consequently changed the brand name to Realistic.
