Nine San Diego County locations are among nearly 1,800 stores targeted for potential closing by RadioShack as part of a recent Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, according to a list released by the Texas-based retailer.
In San Diego, the stores are at 11865 Carmel Mountain Road, 16763 Bernardo Center Drive and 3462 Murphy Canyon Road, with two others in La Jolla – at 8849 Villa La Jolla and 915 Pearl St.
Also on the list are stores at 510 Broadway in Chula Vista, 905 E. Plaza Blvd. in National City, Grossmont Center in La Mesa, and Santee Trolley Square in Santee.
Pending approvals from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, the long-struggling RadioShack plans to sell between 1,500 and 2,400 stores to investment firm Standard General, its largest shareholder, and close the remainder of its 4,000 U.S. locations.
Wireless carrier Sprint Corp. has a deal with Standard General to open mini-shops in up to 1,750 of the RadioShack stores that Standard General plans to buy, according to the investment firm.
