Tandy still exist, just not in retail in Europe. Tandy on line still exists.
the main reason for a lot of these sort of companies going down is high
costs of high street stores and the cheapness of internet products from

People complain about Trump wanting to add tariffs on cheap imports, but

things on the cheap having g to pay for access into our markets or put their
houses in order.
