Default Radio Shack Store Closures

Not sure if any of you care, but as a heads up, there's some stores that will be closing or is in the process of closing. I stopped by Elgin (summit st) and they had up to 60% off on some stuff but a lot around 35% - 40% off. If you're into building small electronics or want resistors, capacitora, ect, right now is the best time. I heard they may drop prices further in April.

I see on Radioshack.com that Crystal Lake is in the process of closure as well.

Brick and mortar retail is falling apart.

All the sports stores are closing as well, remember Sports Authority or Golfsmith? Ya, no one else does either.

Macy's and the like are next in line.

Dont forget Best Buy, they have been in the red for a long time now. Surprised they haven't closed more stores.

It's becoming an online world. Why spend more for something getting up and going to a store when you don't have to do a thing, have it shipped right to you, and spend less.

radio shack isn't what it used to be. just a crap small retail electronics store now.

Probably the only place to get specific small parts (resistors, diodes, capacitors, ect) that's needed quickly and without wait.


On a side note, a lot of Gander Mountains are closing as well. Sadly, the one in Algonquin is on that list. I think it's slated to start closing in late April or May.

Might have to pay attention to their store for some deals.

Had a sports authority by me. I was in the market for a mountain bike while they were closing down. The last few days of their closing sale, the bike I wanted was somehow still more expensive than Performance Bicycle in Orland Park, where I eventually purchased it from instead. That was my only experience with sports authority. Not surprised they're gone with prices that outrageous.
