A major RadioShack shareholder plans to invest more cash in the business in order to improve its liquidity. RadioShack is facing a cash crisis. As of last month it had just $30.5 million in the cash and owed creditors $658 million. Standard General is still discussing the particulars with RadioShack and its other creditors. The hedge fund, along with new, unnamed investors, believe they can buy out RadioShack's loans and get the company back on its feet. Standard General raised its stake in RadioShack from 7.08% to 9.8%, making it the single largest shareholder. The investors hope to shore up RadioShack ahead of the crucial holiday shopping season. RadioShack sells cell phones and wireless service from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless alongside other consumer electronics.

You can't just lower prices at a convenience-store-style business. They need to get exclusive products, even just with minor-yet-intellige...
The only thing radioshack can really do is get an educated work force (I use to work at radioshack and felt like crap that all I could do was sell phones) and lower prices.

However prices cannot be lowered too much. I ran a radioshack and we made, ...
