I just read on the ARRL website that Radio Shack is opening "Express Stores" in some HobbyTown stores across the country.
I just called Walt's HobbyTown on Dwight Park Dr. (near the John Glenn Blvd. exit off I-690) asking if Walt's would be one of the stores in the chain that would have a Radio Shack department. The person I spoke to said they haven't made a decision but are considering it.
I told him that I'm a ham radio operator and that having a Radio Shack back in Syracuse would be of interest to the many hams in the area. He said that was good information and appreciated the call, that he already received 2 or 3 other calls, and repeated that they are definitely considering bringing in Radio Shack and are trying to determine if it would be a good business decision.
If other hams from LARC & RACES call, that may help them decide.
Give Walt's a call!
