Staff report

Anyone in Murray wishing to shop at the RadioShack store located on 12th Street must do so before the store closes Friday, March 10.

Since March 1, everything in the store is 30 to 50 percent off.

A RadioShack employee said the sale was not initially started because the store was closing, rather it was an effort to pick up more business.

“In the end, it didn’t work out,” the employee said.

One of the biggest concerns now that the store is officially closing is where Sprint customers will have to go since RadioShack offered its services until Feb. 28.

Now,  the closest Sprint store is located in Paducah, Kentucky on Hinkleville Road.

If a Sprint customer doesn’t want to make the trip, a Sprint app is available for smartphones and customers can call any store with concerns.

Current RadioShack employees said they don’t know what will come of the building once the store is cleared out.
