RadioShack chain operator files for bankruptcy protection

March 8 (Reuters) - General Wireless Operations Inc, which acquired the RadioShack brand in 2015, said on Wednesday it has filed for bankruptcy protection.

General Wireless, an affiliate of hedge fund Standard General LP, filed for a Chapter 11 reorganization and listed assets and liabilities in the range of 100 million to 500 million in the U.S. bankruptcy court for the Delaware district, the company said in a court filing.
