SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Eight of the 34 RadioShack stores in San Diego County will be closed as part of the fallout from the struggling electronics retailer's bankruptcy filing, according to a list released Monday.
Nearly 1,800 outlets will be shut down nationwide, while the rest of RadioShack's stores -- roughly 2,200 -- will be sold to wireless carrier Sprint and a hedge fund that was the 95-year-old company's biggest investor.
The eight to be closed in the region are in:
-- Carmel Mountain Ranch, 11865 Carmel Mountain Road;
-- Chula Vista, 510 Broadway;
-- La Jolla, 8849 Villa La Jolla and 915 Pearl Street in the downtown village area;
-- La Mesa, Grossmont Center;
-- Murphy Canyon, 3462 Murphy Canyon Road;
-- Rancho Bernardo, 16763 Bernardo Center Drive; and
-- Santee, Santee Trolley Square.
RadioShack has suffered financial losses in 11 of its past 12 quarters.
