RadioShack has made it through its 94th Christmas. But its chances of surviving another year are very much in doubt.
The company is saddled with more than 5,000 stores, many of which it can’t afford to keep open.
Unfortunately for Radio Shack, the company is so cash-strapped that it can’t afford to close them, either.
Closing stores is an expensive undertaking. It requires cash for paying severance, liquidating merchandise and paying penalties to exit leases early.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
