Last week we reported on the demise of RadioShack. Yes, they are filing for bankruptcy; that is a fact. But the Lubbock stores are safe -- for now, anyway.

According to our friends at The Consumerist, 200 locations have already been slated for closing, and the majority of the Texas stores are in the Austin area with Texas losing a total of 17 stores at this time.

Since the company is in the bankruptcy process, again, the Lubbock stores could survive, be rebranded as Sprint corporate stores or could close altogether.

If you have RadioShack gift cards, you only have until April 7th to use them or they will become worthless. So, go find a deal, while you still can.

We will keep you updated on this story as things progress.
