      The Shack shuttering shops

      Published reports are saying that Radio Shack will close hundreds of stores. As of Thursday, which stores will be closed has not been announced.

      According to the Wall Street Journal , 500 locations will be shut down in the coming months. Radio Shack operates about 4,500 stores across the United States.

      This is unsettling news for the Upper Peninsula, still reeling from JC Penney's announcement that they will be closing down locations across the U.S., including the Marquette store.Radio Shack generated a lot of attention on Super Bowl Sunday with their tongue-in-cheek commercial promoting a massive makeover.
