Idaho RadioShack Owner Adds Gun Promotion

By Beacon Staff

BOISE, Idaho – The owner of a RadioShack in Idaho is taking a cue from a Montana store and offering a free shotgun with the purchase of a satellite television package.

Mountain Home store owner John Marshall tells KBOI-TV that business is down and he’s willing to try anything to survive.

After hearing that a southwestern Montana RadioShack tripled its business by offering a coupon for a free gun with the purchase of Dish Network, Marshall decided to give it a try. He began the promotion on Friday.

RadioShack Corp. asked Hamilton store owner Steve Strand to end the promotion last week, saying it does not follow the corporation’s marketing practices. Strand said he planned to continue the promotion.
