Radio Shack stores from a few of the malls covered in this blog and others

As the remaining Radio Shack corporate stores that were taken over by Standard General are converted to Radio Shack/Sprint stores, we take a look back at some of the stores that made an appearance on the blog. Some of the photos and stores are new to the blog. Radio Shack started in 1921 and had over 7,000 locations at the peak of the company. Now there are over 1,700 company stores and around 700 franchises since the corporate 2015 bankruptcy.

Houston still has a mall Radio Shack location at the Shops at Houston Center Mall. A quick search does not show any other mall locations along the I-10 corridor from Houston to New Orleans. Are there any other mall locations left in Texas or Louisiana, if there are comment below.
