Radio Shack plans huge store closures; no list announced for affected stores

Radio Shack announced it's going to close something like 1,1000 stores over the next year or so, roughly one of ever five it operates.

We don't have any list that details where those closures will be. We'll keep after that, hoping to find out the answer in the next few days.

Meanwhile, here's the visual hint that this was coming, when Radio Shack ran this TV ad during the Super Bowl. It cleverly lampoons its own stodgy image. The first minute shows a store clerk taking a call: “The '80s called. They want their store back.”
