Spoke Too Soon. Turns Out the Radio Shack on Summitview Is Closing
It brings a tear to my eye.
Radio Shack recently spoke of closing more than 500 stores nationwide. One of the stores listed was the location in Sunnyside, but made no mention of Yakima's store at 910 Summitview Ave. Unfortunately, when I stopped by there today, they had all these signs posted.
I spoke to an employee and he said it was "still up in the air" on what was going on. The phone service found at that location was already gone and everything in-store was on sale. He said they'd know more in a couple of months what the true fate is but with all sales final I bought what I came in for (solder and a screwdriver set) and made my way out the store. Looks like this might be the last Radio Shack we'll ever see in the Yakima Valley.
