RadioShack is proposing to close 28 South Carolina stores, including two in North Charleston, as part of its bankruptcy plan filed in Delaware.
The ailing consumer electronics chain has posted a “Potential store closures list” on its website showing 1,784 U.S. locations that could go dark.
Among them are the shops at 2150 Northwoods Blvd. and at the Shoppes At Centre Pointe near Tanger Outlets, both in North Charleston, and at The Shops At Walterboro in Colleton County.
The Mount Pleasant and West Ashley stores at 629 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. and 1200 Sam Rittenberg Blvd., respectively, are not on the closure list.
RadioShack, founded nearly a century ago, filed for bankruptcy protection on Thursday. It plans to sell 1,500 to 2,400 stores to its largest shareholder, investment firm Standard General, and it has asked the court to allow it to close the remainder of its 4,000 U.S. stores.
The locations shown on the list will be shuttered in three “tranches” — on Feb. 17, Feb. 28 or March 31.
Liquidation sales are underway at all stores, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.
Wireless carrier Sprint Corp. has a deal to open mini-shops in as many as 1,750 of the RadioShack stores that Standard General is buying. Sprint would take up about one-third of the retail space in each RadioShack store, and Sprint employees would sell mobile devices and Sprint plans.
