The Radio Shack at Colonie Center in Colonie, NY is closing up for good as well, although it's still listed on the Radio Shack site.

Vintage Radio Shack ad, probably not in good taste nowadays.

The former location in Owings Mills, MD...

...and the closed location in Florence, KY, which has now been boarded up.

The closing location inside Cincinnati's Carew Tower...still open as of a couple days ago.

And the Newport, KY location, which has received a new logo and is still doing just fine, thank you very much.

I can't believe when I took pictures inside the now-demolished Bristol Center Mall in Bristol, CT 9 years ago I forgot to take a picture of the old Radio Shack. They had already been closed for several years before they closed the mall 9 years ago.

I feel your pain.

I'm glad myself that I took a picture of the old Radio Shack inside Northland Center in Southfield, Michigan back in March, a month before the entire mall closed permanently. This Radio Shack had already been closed for quite a long time.


Plus, the location on Woodward in midtown Detroit that just closed had the current logo. What a waste there. In addition, the condominium it's in is on somewhat of a death spiral, as the Biggby Coffee in there also just closed.

Radio Shack in  Southington, CT is open and there's a sign in the window that says "We're Open. 94 Years and Counting. #teamradioshack".

The RadioShack in Hammonton, NJ has a similar sign.

The Radio Shack stores are failing in my area, while some locally-owned Radio Shack Dealer stores in my area are doing just fine.

Two Radio Shack dealers in my area:
* Sound Check Radio Shack, Mountain Bay Plaza, Pulaski, Wisconsin
* Oconto Electric Cooperative Radio Shack, Highland Square, Oconto Falls, Wisconsin

That Shack location I posted about in the Carew Tower is still open...but only until Friday.

I'm kind of tempted to make them an offer for that cool neon sign...wonder what my chances would be of getting it on the last day of the sale.

(edit: apparently very slim, as they closed a day early!)

Someone should get a few of the closed stores and remake Radio Shack to what is was in the 60s and 70s - electronic kits and parts for radios, r/c toys and batteries. They were mismanaged lately...

Sadly, I don't think there is much of a market for electronic kits any more. Electronics have become "magic boxes" with "no user-serviceable parts inside", so the days of building your own equipment are probably gone for good.  Besides, online sources provide scads of parts for the enterprising electronics repairperson at cheaper prices than RadioShack ever had.

The now shuttered Radioshack at Neshaminy Mall is one of 3 former stores in that mall, along with the former Dollar tree and Kay Bee Toys sites, that will be converted into extra space for Boscov's

The former Radio Shack at Studio One Plaza in midtown Detroit is now an AT&T store.

Meanwhile, the Radio Shack in Southgate, Michigan is still in operation-and it is not slated for closure any time soon.

Turning around RadioShack was always going to be a hard slog, but word has it Sprint has pulled out of the partnership and HQ has quietly laid off all merchandising and marketing people and all but two of its replenishment people. Liquidation could come within 90 days. Note the comments...

2 former inner city Radio Shack locations  are now Sprint Stores.

196 East Main Street New Britain, Connecticut in the New Brite Plaza.

63 Overlook Terrace Hartford, CT in the Charter Oak Market Place Plaza.

Both plazas are owned by Paramount Realty.

Last week Spanish Station Bomba-FM did a remote from the New Britain store. This week Bomba will be at the Hartford location. Hip-Hop station HOT 93.7 will be at the New Britain location this weekend.
