Last October, Amazon announced that they would try their luck in the market for physical sales, with the opening of its first store in New York City, on 34th Street in Manhattan.

Now it seems that the Seattle company is not the only one chasing RadioShack.

Sprint is showing interest .

Radioshack is considering selling half of its stores to Sprint, and then close the other half.

Radioshack is a long-standing company, and the interest to buy-out the company is golden now, but nothing has been signed away just yet.
