Radio City (763) 786-4475

Radio City News UPDATE : March 5th, 2019 !

By now we here at RADIO CITY HAD EXPECTED TO HAVE A MODEST WEB PAGE UP AND RUNING AS WELL AS ALL OF OUR MODEST REMAINING INVENTORY DOCUMENTED ON THAT WEB SITE. We are still available by our regular phone number 763-786-4475.

Then along came our House fire on January 4, 2019. We had to change our priorities to accommodate a place to live and assist in the clean-up and cataloging of all of our belongings.

We also had some Radio City test equipment, some used items and paperwork lost in the fire which took time to catalogue. We had previously moved our modest amount of inventory to a storage area and thankfully it was not affected by the fire.

Earlier on Dec 1, 2018 we sold the Astronomy Dept to Pioneer Cycle in Blaine and had moved most of the astronomy inventory to their location last year.

We thank you all for your concern and do find we were reasonably insured. All fire inspections, damage control, sorting and security needs have been completed. We are now starting the demolition phase, and then on to rebuilding and replacement over the next 5 months or so.

We plan on getting to the Mid Winter Madness hamfest on March 23rd in Buffalo, MN and plan to have a table for our remaining inventory. We will up-date our progress on the list as the situation changes.

It's Time to Retire.

It's been a wonderful 36 years for us at Radio City and we have decided to retire and close Radio City. :( We are so thankful for the many years of support and we have enjoyed working you, our customers. The technical, intelligent and polite conversations plus advice have been invigorating, thus making this decision extremely difficult for us.

We appreciate all the teachers, Elmers, VE examiners, ham and astronomy clubs efforts in growing new ham radio operators and amateur astronomers into our special community.

We will also miss going to and supporting amateur radio and astronomy clubs all over MN and IA at their events. We will greatly miss all the friendships we have been privileged to maintain with many of our customers.

We plan to exit by this year's end or a bit sooner as we empty our shelves of new and used materials.

Final Goodbye Tour:

We were at Smartfest in Cologne, MN on Saturday September 22nd.

We were at Carlton MN for their Fallfest on Saturday September 29th.

Goodbye Party:

Thanks for coming by on Saturday October 6th for our good bye party. We had cake, coffee and popcorn for everybody. A few pics are here .

Other Necessary Details:

Service:

We will complete servicing items we currently have in the service dept. We will not be accepting any additional 'Out of warranty' items. 'In warranty' items will be still be processed by Radio City per normal until about October 31st, 2018.

Consignment :

We will no longer accept more items for consignment. All items that have NOT been sold need to be picked up the week of Oct 13th, 2018. We will consider all items not picked up by then to be abandoned.

We appreciate all who were able attend our going away party on Sat. 10/6/18 and / or sent their well wishes on line.

It was so good so many familiar faces.

A few pics are here

In closing we will very much miss all of you and perhaps there is someone out there interested in running the store under New Management.

Thanks again for all your support,

Dan and Maline Fish
