one of more than a dozen concept stores to open in Manhattan since RadioShack
debuted the company's first concept store at 2268 Broadway in July 2013. This

our neighborhood locations," CEO Joe Magnacca said. "I've spent a lot of time
in these stores and I'm proud of the transformation."

experience, which showcases the company's new look. Interactive areas
throughout the store encourage shoppers to discover personalized solutions,
connect with sales associates and realize the unlimited potential of
technology. Our associates encourage a collaborative, Do It Together approach
that results in smart solutions to technology needs. Concept store features
include: 

  oA speaker wall controlled by in-store tablets, empowering customers to
    experience a dozen different speakers
  oInteractive displays that encourage shoppers to compare products,
    including headphone demo stations where they can listen with leading
    brands like SOL REPUBLIC, Skullcandy and Beats by Dr. Dre; a remote
    control toy exploration center; and a GoPro camera display, demonstrating

    and Samsung, as well as mobile carriers such as AT&T, Sprint and Verizon

RadioShack is opening a select number of these highly experiential stores in
neighborhoods throughout the nation. This Manhattan location is one of more
than 25 concept stores to open since the company began converting to such
stores in July 2013. These new stores reflect the company's strides toward
