BizBeat: Future unknown for local RadioShack stores

Although RadioShack announced last week the electronics store will be closing 1,100 stores nationwide, the retailer gave no indication to which stores would be effected.

Jefferson City has two RadioShack locations, one on Missouri Boulevard and another inside Capital Mall.

Managers at both locations said they have yet to hear if their stores will be effected in any way. A call to corporate turned up no more information.

“We are not releasing a store closing list at this time. However, RadioShack will maintain market coverage as part of this plan, with more than 4,000 U.S. stores in the RadioShack footprint,” an emailed response from RadioShack’s media relations department said. “We will have information to share in the future.”
