Five locations will remain open: Buffalo, West Seneca, Lockport, Brockport and Olean.

In all, 552 stores are being closed nationwide, 36% of all Radio Shack  locations. The company recently filed for bankruptcy for the second time.

The company says it will "continue to evaluate" their remaining 1,000 stores.
