Sprint wins by getting Radio Shack locations to expand their retail reach, says Technology Industry Analyst Jeff Kagan

Today Radio Shack announced bankruptcy. They will stay in business and go through the bankruptcy process.

The good news is Sprint will be able to acquire many retail storefronts for their rapid expansion in 2015, according to the Kansas City Star, Feb 5.

Industry analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment.

“While I am heartbroken to see Radio Shack in so much trouble, I am also very happy to see Sprint gaining lots of retail storefronts to gain market share.” Says Wireless Analyst Jeff Kagan.

Radio Shack has been around for a lifetime. They have been struggling for many years to stay relevant. Radio Shack will stay in business, but as a much different company going forward.

“Partnering with Sprint could prove to be a big opportunity for both Radio Shack and Sprint.” Telecom Analyst Kagan.

“This is a loss for Radio Shack, but at the same time is also a big win for Sprint.” Says Kagan.

Sprint is a company in the early stages of reinventing themselves under new leadership. This will give Sprint many more storefronts to sell wireless devices from and that is very important going forward.

So this is not the end of the road for Radio Shack. However Radio Shack will look very different going forward through this bankruptcy.

“However this is a big win for Sprint as they rush to expand their ability to reach more customers from coast to coast.” Says Kagan.
