RadioShack Closing All Central Ohio Stores
The latest retail closure news of 2017 comes from Radio Shack, a brand you might not have realized was actually still alive in brick-and-mortar form. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy today, marking the second time the company has taken that action in the past two years. That news is paired with a closure announcement that will see the shuttering of 187 stores across the country, which could happen as early as next week.
While Radio Shack has not yet publicaly announced the locations that will be closed, Business First confirmed today that all six Central Ohio locations will be affected by the closure. That includes locations in Upper Arlington, on the West Side, at the Town & Country Shopping Center, at Northern Lights, in Reynoldsburg and in Heath.
“For nearly 100 years, RadioShack has proudly served local communities across the United States, offering consumers unique, high-quality products at a great value,” stated RadioShack President and CEO Dene Rogers in a press release today. “Over the course of the past two years, our talented, dedicated team has worked relentlessly in an effort to revitalize the Company and the RadioShack brand, while providing outstanding service to our customers. We greatly appreciate their hard work and dedication.”
