Is this the last chapter for Radio Shack?
March 01, 2015
TAMPA - Ahmed Manasrah's face fell into shock and then despair as he turned the corner in Tampa to find his closest Radio Shack store was closed and crews of workers were inside taking apart the shelving. I was looking to get a circuit board, he said. I'm an engineering student at USF, and this is the closest one to me. Where am I going to go now, Amazon? Apparently so, I'm sorry to say. RadioShack Corp. has entered a downward spiral that few retailers survive - Chapter 11 reorganization, coupled with a drive to close or sell most of its store sites. It's sad for everyone, me included. My parents bought my first computer from Radio Shack when I was a wee kid, and it was a tiny precursor to even the Compaq and Commodore 64 terminals that now sit in museums. A small black-and-white screen could show my primitive coding skills, and then produce a printout receipt as output. It was glorious at the time, particularly because Apple computers were supercomputers that nobody could afford.
