Sprint may not be the only company intersted in Radio Shack’s soon to be vacant retail stores.
According to a report from Bloomberg, Amazon has expressed intersted in the brick-and-mortar locations.
Amazon is reportedly intersted in using the stores as a showroom for its hardware, as well as place for customers pick up and drop off merchandise. Amazon currently sells a line of tablets, its Fire smartphone, as well as its new Echo bluetooh speaker and personal assistant.
Radio Shack has about 4,000 retail locations in the United States. Reports have surfaced that the company is looking to sell some of the stores and shutter the rest. Bloomberg notes that Sprint may be interested in purchasing between 1,300 and 2,000 of the locations.
The news comes after the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) announced Monday that it would halt trading of Radion Shack stock. Radio Shack was not meeting the minimum average market value for the NYSE of $50 million.
