BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Even in the end, Radio Shack isn’t getting it quite right. The Radio Shack just north of Palmetto Park Road on 441 is in closeout mode, but even the sole worker there says he has no idea how much items are. It seems no one updated the pricing throughout the store, meaning that prices in bankruptcy are a mystery until an item is scanned.
What’s left? Not much. If you’re looking for diodes, transistors and wire, you’re in luck. If you’re looking for deals on iPhones and computers, no chance. There are a few toys, a few robot kits and batteries, but otherwise, you’re too late.
Radio Shack filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Friday. Virtually all South Florida stores are slated to close.
Editorial Note: It is a sad day. We fondly remember spending hours as a kid combing the shelves of Radio Shack to build our latest electronic gadget or gizmo. And while it pre-dates the internet as we know it now, our T-102 laptop (shown) still exists in 2015.
