FORT WORTH, Texas, July 17, 2014

FORT WORTH, Texas, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RadioShack will celebrate the
opening of the company's fifth interactive remodeled store in the New Orleans
area starting Saturday, July 19, at 9 a.m. The newly remodeled store is
located at 717 Canal Street and marks RadioShack's continued effort to
revitalize area stores. RadioShack is proud to maintain its presence in the
New Orleans community for more than 46 years since its first location opened
in 1968.

Locally remodeled stores feature RadioShack's new Fix It Here! service, a
mobile device repair program that in most cases delivers same-day repair or
faster for many of today's most popular mobile devices. Customers who have
damaged or broken mobile devices can conveniently and quickly have them
repaired by a trained RadioShack technician. Technicians will diagnose and
repair the device at an in-store kiosk, often in as little as an hour.

"Our interactive remodeled stores represent what consumers should expect to
see from the RadioShack brand," said Mike DeFazio, senior vice president of
store operations at RadioShack. "These stores all deliver an upgraded shopping
experience, with a refined product mix showcased in more modern, redesigned
stores. We've added areas in the stores to encourage shoppers to discover
personalized solutions, and our associates are ready with a collaborative, "Do
It Together" approach that results in smart solutions for our customers'
technology needs."

Interactive remodel store features include:

  oA speaker wall where customers can shop and compare different speakers
    using music installed on in-store tablets
  oInteractive displays that enable shoppers to find and compare products,
    including headphone demo stations where they can listen to leading brands
    like SOL REPUBLIC, Skullcandy and Beats by Dr. Dre; a remote control (RC)
    toy exploration center; and a GoPro camera display demonstrating the
    capabilities of several models of GoPro cameras
  oTechnology that makes shopping interesting and playful, like touchscreens
    and apps that help shoppers understand the benefits of products
  oNewly configured displays highlighting in-demand brands like Apple, HTC
    and Samsung, as well as mobile carriers such as AT&T, Sprint and Verizon
  oHelpful, informative RadioShack staff who can answer shoppers' questions
    about hundreds of products and services, and direct customers to the items
    that meet their specific needs

On Saturday, July 19, the first 20 customers who check in to the store on

Additionally, to celebrate the opening of this newly remodeled store, New
