The Sad Afterlife of RadioShack’s Name
The bankrupt corpse of RadioShack has nearly been picked clean, with corporate scavengers putting prices on just about everything of value left at the once proud company. All that's left now are the rights to reuse the name itself in the U.S. — and the names of millions of RadioShack customers. The defunct electronics retailer is selling those off, too, in what should be the last major action in its bankruptcy proceedings. Bids are due Wednesday, and an auction will follow next week if there are multiple bidders.
