Fun107 spoke to some employees at a local Radio Shack and asked an employee how the closing of the stores will affect them as an employee. The employee said "well I'm not going to have a job anymore,but if anything it will decrease my stress". Fun107 asked an employee if this was a surprise to the Radio Shack employees and if they were expecting this closing. The employee said "Well it was a surprise,but I thought we were going to be okay,but gosh it really happening,were closing what am I suppose to do now".
