Troubled RadioShack will attempt to repackage itself with the recent launch of smaller express stores in St. Charles and Schaumburg.
The Fort Worth, Texas-based electronics company, which filed for bankruptcy in March 2015 and again in March 2017, is partnering with HobbyTown to open RadioShack Express stores within the confines of HobbyTown stores in the suburbs. Another express store within a store is planned for Northbrook.
.... a nearby RadioShack in Yorkville operates in a different manner, both in terms of product line and ownership. Unlike the express stores in HobbyTown, the RadioShack products offered within the Yorkville Ace Hardware at 9620 U.S. Route 34 represent business as usual.
