RadioShack files for bankruptcy again

For the second time in less than three years, electronics company RadioShack is filing for bankruptcy.

The retailer, based in Fort Worth, Texas, and founded in 1921 in Boston, will close about 200 stores. 

RadioShack, which first filed for bankruptcy in 2015, filed again in a Delaware court Wednesday. 

RadioShack announced plans to close more than 1,000 underperforming stores in March 2014.

In 2015, telecommunications corporation Sprint and the hedge fund Standard General agreed to buy up to 2,400 of RadioShack's stores. At the time, RadioShack had about 4,000 stores in the United States. 

This week, the company said it will evaluate its options for the remaining 1,300 stores and will try to "preserve as many jobs as possible."

According to The Associated Press, anything sold at physical RadioShack stores can't be returned for a refund, but items purchased online at can be returned. RadioShack gift cards must be used by April 7.

A cautious Supreme Court sets modern record for consensus

The Supreme Court was short-handed for most of the term that ended Monday, and it responded with caution, setting a modern record for consensus. “Having eight was unusual and awkward,” Justice Samuel Alito told a judicial conference a few days after Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court in April. “That probably required having a lot...

Interior secretary wants more 'front line' help in parks

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke says he'll ease the impact of potentially huge National Park Service budget cuts by shifting more resources to the "front line." But it's not clear yet what that actually means. The department earlier this year laid out the potential effects in its justification for the funding reductions in fiscal 2018, which...

McConnell’s reputation as a master tactician takes a hit

Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, has long enjoyed a reputation as a master tactician. But when it comes to repealing the health care law, he seems to have miscalculated in the first round of play. He assumed that his conservative and moderate colleagues would come together to make good on their seven-year promise to repeal the...

Trump is China’s chump

Having just traveled to New Zealand, Australia, South Korea, China, Taiwan and now Hong Kong, I can say without an ounce of exaggeration that more than a few Asia-Pacific business and political leaders have taken President Donald Trump’s measure and concluded that — far from being a savvy negotiator — he’s a sucker who&rsquo...
