I went into the local Radio Shack store last week, only to find they the store was closing. There is another nearby store that will remain open, though it's not in walking distance unless I want to (and have for) a 30-minute walk. This store is the original Radio Shack, though the loication has changed from the original.

I did have 2 separate on-line accounts at Radioshack.com (1 for personal, the other for business).  I tried to log in to update my e-mail addresses today, and neither account exists any more!  THAT is not a good sign at all, if they were hoping to survive on-line.

I spent the last few days in NYC and saw three RS stores closing, plus one in Cambridge, Mass. last weekend. The three in NYC were Broadway and W 10 St., Times Square, and Kings Highway in Brooklyn.

The Cambridge store was at the Galleria Mall.

Bert,

You are not alone. I was in a local mall over the weekend and the RS store there was closing. Nearly all merchandise except components was gone. I bought a pair of 1/8-in. Stereo pugs to make  cable for connecting an iThing to a speaker.

The photo I used in this article was taked last year. If I were to tale the same photo today, you've barely see anything over the snowbanks.

Judging from the photos, it seems your local store is doing well. Our local RS was part of a large hardware store and it's gradually vanishing.

On the other hand, I just noticed last week that the one Radio Shack store I can walk to from work is already closed. And wouldn't you know it, it's not even on that list Radio Shack provided. So from my perspective, it's pretty bad.

I received a reply from RS Media Relations to my e-mail last night.

"Any information related to bankruptcy or store filings will be found at http://radioshackcorporation.com/restructuring/.  We do not have information to share beyond that."

That's it.
