Glenwood-area Radio Shacks not affected by closures

Glenwood Springs-area Radio Shack stores are open for business and plan to stay that way.Radio Shack Corp. announced recently that it will close upwards of 700 of its company-owned stores as part of a corporate reorganization plan. No Radio Shack stores in or near Garfield County will be affected, said Radio Shack spokeswoman Wendy Dominguez. The closures affect only company-owned stores, not Radio Shack dealers or franchises. The only company-owned Radio Shack in the area is in the Glenwood Springs Mall. That store will remain open. Locally owned Radio Shack dealers are in Rifle, Parachute, Carbondale, Aspen, Avon and Meeker. Radio Shack closures are confined to the Denver metropolitan area, Boulder, Greeley, Colorado Springs and Pueblo, Dominguez said. But just because local Radio Shacks are keeping the lights on doesn’t mean change isn’t afoot there. Dominguez said that if you’re headed to Radio Shack for less chic merchandise like TV antennas and electronic parts such as resisters, LEDs, etc., you could be out of luck. Sale of those items are being relegated to the company’s Web site to make space for things like satellite radio, TiVo and other gadgets more popular than vinyl record slipcases. The new merchandising plan, Dominguez said, will primarily affect company-owned stores, while Radio Shack dealers determine for themselves what items to sell. Contact Bobby Magill: 945-8515, ext.
