Diamond Bar Radio Shack Closed Due to 'Poor Performance'

The Radio Shack on South Diamond Bar Boulevard closed as a result of "poor performance," according to a corporate spokesman.

Diamond Bar-Walnut Patch reader Kenny Faith recently sent us a message on Facebook asking us to check into what happened to the electronics store.

Kirk Brewer, a spokesman with Radio Shack, said that the Diamond Bar store closed in January 2013. 

The closest stores to Diamond Bar are locations in Pomona, Chino Hills, and San Dimas.

Many of the products once sold at the Diamond Bar store are available for purchase online at Radioshack.com, Brewer said.

Do you miss having a Radio Shack in town? Did you notice it had closed? Tell us in your comments.

A shame. I know a fair number of Radio Shacks were struggling a bit.

I must say I will miss RS... but again, everytime I went into the store there was noone in there. I figured they would close up. Lets face it DB residents. If we don't support our retailers, they are going to leave. As they are doing.

I didn't even know we still had a Radio Shack in DB. Where exactly was it located? I was under the impression it closed years ago. I recall having one in the Ralph's Shopping Center years ago.

I'm not surprised. Radio Shack today is a mere shadow of what it once was. RS today has little product variety. In most cases, prices are outrageously high. So, in return for patronage, stores like RS need to ensure they are competitive or suffer the consequences.

Go into any Radio Shack store today and more than half the store is cell phones and cell phone accessories. The things that Radio Shack was known for was all the audio and video parts and components and the last few times I went into the store I couldn't find the items that they use to carry. Now it is all on line and most of those things you can get on other web sites for less money. Times have changed and some retailers will not survive. It's a shame.

Hi Resident. It was down on South Diamond Bar Boulevard where they have the (now closed) Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Rite Aid. I believe that is called the Country Hills Shopping Center.

Radio Shack has to compete with online sellers, who don't have the high overhead, as well as Ebay and Craigs list sellers who may be selling counterfeit products at cheaper prices and those people don't pay the sales tax that is required by law.

The problem buying things online is that you have to wait for them to be delivered.. sometimes a week or so. Especially electronics. Hard to find an electronic store anymore. Radio Shack filled that void... I could just run over and pick it up. Especially stuff for the tv or household electronics. I will miss them in that regard. I run over to the one on Colima Rd in Puente Hills now. Quick jump on the 60.
