Following the announcement last week that it was filing bankruptcy and shuttering many stores nationwide, Radio Shack has released a list of the stores it intends to close. Included on that list is the Radio Shack at the Northtowne Mall in Defiance. The local store is among more than 1,700 stores nationwide that will be going out of business in the next 60 days. While Radio Shack says some stores will join with Sprint for a “store within a store,” type concept, the Defiance Radio Shack isn’t one of them.
Right now, four people work at the 2,213-square-foot store in Defiance, which is expected to shut it’s doors by the end of this month. Some other stores that are slated to close, will do so by Feb. 17th, and a final round of closings will take place on or before March 31st.
The Flag City store in Findlay is also on the list of stores to be closed, but no official date has yet been given for that location.
