RadioShack files Ch.11, plans Sprint partnership

Standard General to buy up to 2,400 RadioShack stores

RadioShack filed its long-awaited bankruptcy papers Thursday evening. The troubled tech retailer aims to reorganize under Chapter 11.

Part of its plan calls for an asset purchase agreement with hedge fund Standard General and Sprint to use a "store-in-store" model that would allow the RadioShack name to exist in as many as 1,750 of the acquired shops. Other underperforming locations would shutter.

The branding on the surviving stores would primarily feature Sprint, according to a Standard General statement.

Sprint PCS is listed as one of RadioShack's biggest creditors, with a claim of $6 million in trade debt.
