RADIO SHACK SALE CATALOGS & FLYERS
For many of us, receiving Radio Shack's weekly, monthly & seasonal publications in our mailbox was a much anticipated event. 
 
Beginning in the 1950s, these flyers/circulars/newspapers/catalogs were direct-mailed not only to previous and current customers, but also to potential customers in the hope of attracting more tech-hungry shoppers who would find a new level of products, services and excitement in a store that made the buying experience fun.

Typically, these publications contained a mix of Radio Shack's introductory products, sale products, clearance items, weekly specials, best buys, and special buys. Radio Shack also used these circulars to promote their newest full-line catalog, special anniversaries, special milestones (for example, "Radio Shack Buys Allied Radio", "Radio Shack Opens Its 1000th Store", and the like), new store locations, and seasonal specials.  In regards to seasonal publications, most people will agree that the Christmas gift catalogs were the most anticipated, popular and memorable. 
 
In addition to the publication itself, a popular enticement to get you into a Radio Shack store was to print a coupon in these publications.  These popular coupons could be redeemed for a free, or highly discounted item.  Some of these items were a battery, flashlight, pen, beach ball, "Battery of the Month" card, or Cue Cat (a cat-shaped bar code scanning device). 
 
Below, you can browse through a sampling of Radio Shack's flyers / circulars / newspapers / catalogs from the 1950s to 2000s.  Enjoy!
