Dear Friends Of Universal Radio,
Time waits for no one, and that includes Barbara and myself. We have decided to retire and our current location in Worthington will close on November 30, 2020.
Even though the store is closing we will fulfill all existing customer orders and have a large amount of inventory to close-out.
The Universal Radio website will be maintained for the foreseeable future to sell this remaining stock, publications and some select products. Unfortunately the lack of a store front showroom will preclude us from carrying some manufacturers’ products.
I am very fortunate to have been in the radio business for over 50 years, 13 at Radio Shack and 37 at Universal Radio. We have met many wonderful people along the journey who have supported me personally as well as Universal Radio.
It has been a privilege to have a continuous career in the fascinating field of radio since 1969.
Please accept our sincere “Thank You” for your support of Universal Radio for these many years, and for the months to come. Our new address for correspondence and mail order is below.
This is not a store front.
Universal Radio Inc.
752 N. State St. Unit 222

Thank you. 73,
