Not directly Linux related, but may be of interest: RadioShack will be closing down several stores and filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  See the announcement here on Fox Business.  This site lists the stores that are closing.  Appears the store at the Valley View Mall is on that list.

Sad to see them go, but right now might be a good time to snatch up some good deals! Although, isn't that a bit like a vulture waiting for dinner to die? :-)
