One of two Turlock RadioShack locations will potentially close its doors within the next two months following the electronics retailer filing for bankruptcy earlier this month.
RadioShack located at 2201 Fulkerth Rd. Building D, in the Countryside Plaza, will be closing by March 31, according to a potential closure list released by RadioShack.
The electronics retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Feb. 5 and will be closing, as well as selling, thousands of stores nationwide.
The Fulkerth Road location is one of 1,784 US stores slated for possible closure. Closures will occur in three waves, or tranches.
The first tranche of closures includes 162 stores and is set to be completed by Feb. 17. The second tranche includes another 986 stores set to close by Feb. 28. The third tranche includes 636 stores and is set to be completed by March 31.
Turlock’s closing location is in the third tranche and will potentially close by March 31. Three nearby Modesto locations are also named in the list released by RadioShack.
For the time being, Turlock’s second RadioShack, located 3161 Geer Rd., appears to be safe. However, the corporation also has plans to sell thousands of locations that would become Sprint retailers through a “store within a store” model.
“These steps are the culmination of a thorough process intended to drive maximum value for our stakeholders,” said Joe Magnacca, RadioShack's chief executive officer.
