Our local Radio Shack is GONE!

Post by Wildcat445 on Fri Jan 23, 2015 4:29 pm

I was just there a week ago. I was going to stop on my way home today for a couple caps. The store is just one bare room. There was a crew there painting. The sign is gone and everything. The painting crew did not know when the store closed. The RS was across the street from where I work and I could swear that it was open, or at least the sign was still there, when I went to work this morning.

I think the Mexican restaurant next door is going to take the space. The painters were measuring the wall to make an arch or entry into the old RS store. It is a pretty good Mexican restaurant, but not a good place to buy electronic parts. The next closest RS is run by a bunch of possibly now unemployed Generation X cellphone kids. I may have to get stuff from AES now.

Your Radio Shack dissapeared?? I wonder how that happened?





Seriously I hope when they close around here I can catch it to get some deals. I heard of folks doing that. Back in the early 80s when I was going to college in this town on my way home there was a junk store like. They got a load of RS stuff. They were filling bags full of parts and then selling the parts for a couple of bucks apiece. I still have some parts left. Each bag had 50 to 100 bucks of stuff in them.

Radio Shack actually went out of business back in the 80s. They sold out but never changed the name to Cell Phone Shack.

I guess the Radio Shack on Ebay will be my local one from now on.
