branson hills radio shack closed

I had a need for something I thought Radio Shack might have, so I stopped to check to shop local before web shopping instead. They are closed and that section of retail where they were at is now only 50% occupied as 6 of the 12 bays are now vacant. I thought things were supposed to be going gangbusters at Branson Hills? Anyway I tried another spot that mught have my item. They too are gone. Looks like Amazon wins again.

Radio Shack filed bankruptcy nationwide earlier this year. Most stores closed or are in the process of closing. Sprint bought some of the stores.
