Radio Shack to close 20 percent of its stores

Announcement hits stock prices

By Josh Gross

The BBC is reporting that electronics retailer, Radio Shack, will be closing around 1,100 of its stores, a number representing nearly 20 percent of its locations.

From the article...

The move comes as the firm reported a net loss of $400.2m (240m) for 2013, up from $139.4m a year ago.

Radio Shack has been hurt by growing competition, not least from online stores, which has dented its sales.

The firm's sales fell 10% last year, with revenue during the crucial holiday season fourth quarter down by 20%.

The article also said that the announcement hit the price of Radio Shack stock hard, exacerbation the drop it has already seen in recent years.

The announcement also caused satirical newspaper, The Onion, to resend out a piece it originally published in 2007. The headline? "Even CEO Can't Figure Out How Radio Shack Still In Business."

Profit and loss is a part of every business but according to me a complete closure of your outlets is not a solution. As a business writer at Pay for paper writing i would instead suggest that to stop further loss you can close your retail outlets for a certain timeperiod and re open it again.
