Andy's Angles: Going, Going...

Well, that was fast.

Radio Shack went bankrupt a few weeks ago, and closed a bunch of stores, including this one in Taylor.  I snapped this camera phone picture at 3 AM yesterday, as I was stopping by the adjacent WalMart for cold medication.

Radio Shacks were always neat places to explore, but it became a niche retailer, and the niches now belong to the internet.

Some Shacks are still around, but I can't say I have much hope.  The success rate for troubled businesses like this isn't spectacular.
