Oneonta RadioShack to remain open



Blount County Electronics will remain open despite the recent announcement that 1000 RadioShacks would be closing, according to owner Harold Gwin. ‘We’ve been receiving a lot of calls asking if we are closing, but we are a franchise store, no matter what happens regarding the RadioShack corporate stores, we will not be closing anytime during the next decade,’ Gwin said. ‘We are much more than just a RadioShack.’ Blount County Electronics offers more customer services and products than other RadioShacks, according to Gwin, including cell phones, personal computer repair, telescopes, and remote-controlled toys, among others.
