RadioShack Losing 400 Sam's Club-Based Kiosks
Jan 10, 2011, 5:14 PM by Eric M. Zeman
RadioShack has indicated via an SEC filing that the contract it has with Wal-Mart-owned Sam's Club to run some 400 kiosks selling wireless goods and services is set to expire soon. Rather than extend the contract, Wal-Mart is taking over the operation of the wireless kiosks within Sam's Club stores by June 30, which will reduce RadioShack's retail footprint. To make up for the loss, RadioShack is boosting its relationship with Target, where it will add kiosks. Even so, RadioShack warned that it will see a $10 to $15 million drop in its kiosk business profit for 2011 due to the kiosk loss.

Such bad Blood between Carrier stores & SCK
I feel sympathetic to the employees who may not have a job after Sams takes over the sck spaces. I've had my ups and downs with the Shack, and though I haven't agreed with every decision RS has made over the years, there will always be a special place in my heart. I wouldn't be where I am today if not for the great opportunity I had with the Shack.
I invite any SCK employees who are looking at their options t...
