FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RadioShack will open the company's second Florida concept store in Largo on Saturday, Jan. 18 at 9 a.m. This RadioShack has been a part of the Pinellas County community since the store opened in its original Clearwater location more than 40 years ago in 1973.
