TRUSSVILLE — The RadioShack on Chalkville Mountain Road in Trussville will soon be closing.
A yellow banner hanging on the storefront says “Store Closing.”
RadioShack announced in early 2014 that it was planning to close up to 1,100 underperforming stores in the United States.
“Over the past few months, we have undertaken a comprehensive review of our portfolio from many angles – location, area demographics, lease life and financial performance – in order to consolidate our store base into fewer locations while maintaining a strong presence in each market,” RadioShack CEO Joseph C. Magnacca said in 2014. “The result of that review is our plan to close up to 1,100 underperforming stores.”
The RadioShack in Trussville was robbed at gunpoint Feb. 13, 2014 and Nov. 15, 2014. Suspects were arrested in both cases.
