FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 18, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Friday will be "Shack Friday" at RadioShack®, but you don't need to wait another week for great prices. RadioShack announced today that select deals will start five days earlier online and in stores at more than 4,600 store locations nationwide to help customers in their quest to become "Holiday Heroes."
The holiday season can be a time of increased stress as already busy schedules are pushed to the limit.
