Findlay’s RadioShack store not among those set to close

Findlay’s RadioShack, 2320 Tiffin Ave., will survive its headquarters’ plans to close up to 1,100 stores, a Findlay employee said Wednesday.
“We’re not going anywhere,” said employee Bryce Stallard. “We’re one of the higher-volume stores in our district.”
That district extends to Toledo, Lima and Tiffin, Stallard said.
The Findlay store manager was not available for comment on Wednesday.
RadioShack Corp. of Fort Worth, Texas, plans to close up to 1,100 stores, or about 20 percent, since sustaining a quarterly loss after a disappointing holiday season.
The closings represent the latest setback for RadioShack, which is fighting to update its image and compete with the rise of online and discount retailers.
Calls to RadioShack corporate headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas, were not returned Wednesday.
