RadioShack today said it plans to close as many as 200 more stores as its turn-around efforts stall. In March, the company announced it would close 1,100 stores by the end of the year. The closures combined will leave RadioShack with about 3,800 stores operating in the U.S. The company blamed its woes on poor sales of smartphones. RadioShack is in the process of updating both its image and its sales strategy with a focus on electronic entertainment devices. It sells devices from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless.

Samsung will bring its newest rugged phone for enterprise customers — the Galaxy XCover6 Pro — to the US next month. The XCover6 Pro replaces the original XCover Pro, which launched with AT&T in late 2020.
From the article:
"In March, the company said it would close as many as 1,100 of its more than 4,000 shops, but its lenders limited the closures to just 200 stores. RadioShack (RSH) will focus instead of remodeling some of its existing properties and rebranding."
They will be sorely missed
Maybe Radio Shack should stop trying to compete in the crowded cellphone space and get back to the basics. They could expand beyond electronics and become the one-stop shop for enthusiasts. Maybe something like Radio Shack, Fry's, Hobby Lobby, and Michael's all rolled into one. They should try to set themselves apart by becoming DIY paradise, imho.
This is just the loss...
Lower Prices = Higher Sales
They're not relevant anymore -- unfortunate to think that all those people will be out of a job though :-(
this is funny
