That nostalgic RadioShack commercial that ran during the Super Bowl is turning out to be a little too close to reality.

In it, a RadioShack store was torn apart by eighties icons and quickly rebuilt.

It appears only the first half of that equation will happen to some stores!

The Wall Street Journal is reporting today that Radioshack will close around 500 stores in the next few months.

It's part of a restructuring plan.

RadioShack has about 4,300 stores around the US.
