Feb. 9, 2015 By Christian Murray

The Radio Shack stores located in western Queens are not closing—at least in the short term;

As part of Radio Shack’s filing for bankruptcy, it announced that it would close about 1,800 of its 4000 stores by March 31.

The three stores in Astoria, one in Woodside and another in Sunnyside were not among the 1,800 closures.

Most of the surviving stores, as part of the bankruptcy agreement with Sprint, will become “stores within a store.” The Sprint name would be the primary brand on each storefront.

Sprint said it would keep about 1,750 locations going forward.

Radio Shack filed for bankruptcy on Feb. 5 and provided a list of the stores it is closing.

The following five stores were NOT on that list.

28-54 Steinway Street
22-32 31st Street.
21-07 Broadway
62-17 Roosevelt Ave.
45-02 Queens Blvd, Sunnyside
.
For the full list of closures, see below.
