RadioShack Bankruptcy Shuts Down Two State College Businesses

by on February 07, 2015 9:00 AM

RadioShack's announcement that it has filed for bankruptcy means that State College will lose two businesses. Both of the electronics retailer’s State College locations are on the list of more than 4,000 RadioShack stores slated for closure, according to a news release from the company.

One of the two stores is located at the Nittany Mall, 2901 E. College Ave. The other is at North Atherton Place, 1621 N. Atherton St. Both stores were unable to provide a timetable for the impending closures, but did begin clearance sales on Friday with the usual bright yellow and red signage.

RadioShack’s corporate office was unavailable for comment on when to expect the two State College locations to close their doors for good. The number of items for sale at the North Atherton Place shop were noticeably less than normal on Friday, with inventory and mobile devices pulled from displays. 

An employee at the Nittany Mall store confirmed that they have transitioned to being a “clearance store”. The stores were unable to comment on how many jobs would be lost as a result of the bankruptcy.

If you’re desperate to get to RadioShack once the two local shops shut down, neither of the electronics retailer’s Altoona locations are listed as potential closures.
