RadioShack Canada closing
Not really a surprise – RadioShack is closing down in Canada, so if you’re looking for a deal, might be worth a visit… I poked around and it appears that tools and parts are up to 60% off.
“RadioShack Corporation will close its nine company-owned stores in Canada by the end of January 2007 as the company focuses its attention and resources on strengthening its core business in the U.S.” – Link.
In the USA RadioShack isn’t really the place you go for parts any longer, each year the selection shrinks to make room (and $) for cell phones and iPod accessories – what stores are our Canadian makers using (online and physical)? “The Source” is the Circuit City purchased, then renamed version of RadioShack, those are still around, but I don’t think they carry parts.
Here are a few, post more in the comments…
