Closing Sunday: Reston’s Radio Shack

Some merchandise is available and there are deep discounts to be had at the Radio Shack at 1404 North Point Village Center.

The store is one of is on the list of the nearly 2,000 locations nationwide that were marked in February for closing as part of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Radio Shack has been around since the 1920s as a place to purchase radio and electronics parts. But in the technology boom of the last 20 years, it failed to keep pace with big box stores such as Target and Best Buy, as well as online retailers.

In addition to what remains of the stock, the store is also selling its fixtures such as shelves and display cases.

    Oh no! Where will I find batteries for my 1988 Texas Instrument’s scientific calculator? And what other store will request my name and address on a $4 purchase?

    It turns out that both the Herndon and the Dulles Town Center Radio Shacks are staying open for now. Reston doesn’t have enough “nerds” like me apparently, but Herndon and Sterling do, go figure. I am sad to see it go.

    The timing of this was off for the new Glory Days, they could have used Radio Shack’s adjacent space.
