After filing for bankruptcy for the second time, RadioShack will be closing 552 stores, including two more Queens locations.

The two stores, one located at Pathmark Plaza, 134-40 Springfield Blvd., Springfield Gardens and the other at 22-32 31st St., Astoria, will be shut down by next month.

The closures will take place in two waves, with 187 closing immediately and another 365 closing by the first week of April. Business Insider first reported. With 1,000 stores remaining, RadioShack said it will continue to evaluate their fate.

The closings will affect 36 percent of the existing RadioShack stores. According to the court filing regarding the bankruptcy, the stores that are being shut down have the lowest sales velocity and highest rent.

RadioShack went through a similar purge in 2015, closing 1,784 stores nationwide, including 12 in Queens.
