Brownwood’s Sprint store will close after its final day of sales this Friday, March 24, according to the RadioShack store manager.
Sprint and RadioShack have long shared a store space in the 1103 Clement strip mall, but the appearance of a “store closing” sign in front of the location led to questions about the future of both businesses. RadioShack store manager Michael Hemm said his corporate office has not yet indicated that they will close the location completely.
“In between here and May, there could be a possibility that we’re closing if they don’t find anyone to invest in the company, is what I’ve been hearing,” Hemm said. The store is filled with signs advertising final markdowns and sales, but Hemm said he received a new shipment of supplies recently.
“We haven’t really been getting any updates,” Hemm said. “They’ve just been telling us what to do, like put the signs up, so that’s what we’ve been doing.”
On March 17, Business Insider released a list of 552 RadioShack stores that will close following the store’s second bankruptcy filing. Brownwood’s location is not on the list.
Meanwhile, Early assistant city administrator Larry McConn was able to confirm that Mexican restaurant Mi Familia has officially closed and been purchased by Comanche National Bank. It is unclear at this time what the future will hold for the large 1020 Early Blvd. property.
