(WWLP) – Financially-struggling electronics retailer Radio Shack is planning to close 1,784 stores across the country by the end of next month. Radio Shack currently operates about 4,500 stores in the United States and Mexico, including locations spread throughout the four counties of western Massachusetts.

Three of those local locations are among those scheduled to shut down. The stores will be closed in phases, with the first 162 stores to close by February 17, the second group of 986 stores to shut down by February 28, and the remaining 636 stores to close by March 31.

Here are the local locations set to shut down:

  • Hadley– Hampshire Mall – will close in first phase
  • Springfield -342 Cooley St. – will close in second phase
  • Holyoke– Holyoke Mall at Ingleside – will close in third phase

As part of Radio Shack’s reorganization efforts, an increasing amount of floor space in surviving stores will be granted to cell phone carrier Sprint.
