A viral Facebook account claiming to be an Ohio RadioShack is lashing out at customers

RadioShack

An Ohio RadioShack has apparently gone rogue on Facebook, after the company decided to close down the store. 

“We closed. F— all of you,” RadioShack in Reynoldsburg, Ohio posted on Facebook soon after midnight, early Tuesday morning. 

“Always hated all you p—- customers anyway,” reads another post from later on Tuesday.

RadioShack announced in mid-March that its Reynoldsburg, Ohio store would be one of the 552 stores the company would shutter. There is reason to believe, however, that this isn’t the local store’s official Facebook page. For one, the Facebook account was created in early April — after RadioShack announced that the Reynoldsburg store would shut down. 

The Reynoldsburg account isn’t verified on Facebook, but the same can be said for many RadioShack locations’ accounts. RadioShack did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

The atypical posts are quickly going viral. The original post had roughly 2,000 reactions and more than 1,000 shares as of Tuesday afternoon. 

Whoever is running the account seems to have a good grasp on one of RadioShack’s biggest problems — the growth of ecommerce cutting into its business. 

In response to a customer asking if the location will be open tomorrow, the account responded: “Yes, but you should Just shop amazon like all our other customers.”

Radio Shack

In early March, RadioShack filed for bankruptcy for the second time in just over two years, as the company has struggled to update its reputation and keep up with online and discount retailers. The Reynoldsburg RadioShack is far from the only casualty in the retail apocalypse — more than 3,500 stores are expected to close across the US in the coming months.
