What’s the common link between leather shoes and two-way radios?
(Surprisingly) there isn’t one.
So it may seem peculiar that Tandy was originally founded as Tandy Leather Company at the midpoint of the 20th century.
In 1963, Tandy’s U.S. founders had a spark of inspiration. Their business focus switched to electronics when they acquired control of RadioShack.
Immediate success in the electronics industry saw Tandy expand its operations overseas, and in November 1973 the first Tandy stores were open for business in Australia.
Tandy soon became a household name in suburbs all across the country. The CB radio and computer boom of the 70s and early 80s meant that more stores were needed to cater for the growing demand for the latest tech. By 1986 there were around 350 Tandy stores in Australia alone.
Fast forward to 2016...
In May 2016 Kogan.com acquired the Tandy brand name and in February 2017 relaunched the company as Tandy.com.au.
Tandy.com.au will look to emulate the same great value, innovation and exceptional service that typified the Tandy of old.
With a new website, a passionate new team and an online-only business model, Tandy.com.au will make the latest audio, computers and TVs more affordable for a new generation of tech-loving Australians.
