RadioShack is closing its store in Frankfort Crossing

Troubled electronics retailer RadioShack has been holding a store closing sale at its Frankfort location in the Frankfort Crossing plaza at U.S. 30 and LaGrange Road.

The Frankfort location is one of nine stores in Illinois being closed and the only one in the south suburbs. Other locations are in Willowbrook and LaGrange.

Liquidation sales at the stores are expected to be completed by March 28.

The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last week, its second such filing in two years. The company is looking to close at least a third of its remaining locations and possibly turn over some to Sprint.

As many as 365 locations could be transferred to Sprint, which operates stores inside some RadioShack stores, the company said in court filings. Among that second group are stores in Chicago’s McKinley Park neighborhoods.

RadioShack said it is still considering its options for the retailer’s remaining 1,000 stores.
