For those who don't know how Radio Shack remains competitive it is services like their Kiosk devisions (Sprint mall kiosks, Sam's Club Kiosks, K-Mart Kiosks) where they are essentially renting out their employees to staff these other entities stores that is probably the next phase of the Radio Shack story, and definitely is the fastest growing segment of the company.
