"James Salter, head of Hilco Consumer Capital, a Chicago company that late last month agreed to pay $49 million for the remains of Sharper Image, says he has approached [Richard] Thalheimer about working as a product consultant. "I think he'd be an excellent guy to bring back," says Salter.
Thalheimer says he's considering the offer--but only if he can keep running Richardsolo."
Let the games begin. And let's hope for the great second act that only Richard can bring.
