RadioShack to open 8 a.m. Thanksgiving Day

Struggling electronics chain RadioShack on Monday added its name to the growing list of retailers that will be open on Thanksgiving Day.

For the first time, the company will open the majority of its stores at 8 a.m. Thursday, and they will remain open until midnight. Last year, most of its doors were closed on Thanksgiving.
