The decision to close 1,100 Radio Shack stores nationwide has different consequences for local retailers.

Electronics company Radio Shack recently announced plans to restructure and close 1,100 stores as sales have been declining.

The nationwide decision has different consequences for two local retailers.

The news did not fare well for Greensburg Electronics. The store will be closing possibly by the end of the month. A store manager revealed that a close-out sale is currently ongoing, and residents are encouraged to stop by the store on Freeland Road. The business is open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m.- 8 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

Geis Electronics Inc., has been in business for five decades in downtown Batesville and the store owner confirmed that the store will not be impacted by Radio Shack consolidation efforts.

“We’ve been in business for 52 years and we are going to stay here to serve the community,” said owner Al Geis.

“As long as they can supply us we will certainly keep their product in line. For any reason, Radio Shack would go out of business we have other sources to get electronic products and accessories,” Geis said.

The business on E. George Street specializes in several other products including televisions, furniture, bedding and home automation. Geis Electronics is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
