The Shack is about to get back Verizon

The Shack is about to get back Verizon
Verizon Wireless took an exit when Circuit City stores around the country announced that they are closing forever. So what does Big Red do to gain more customers in areas outside their carrier stores? Boy Genius is reporting that the renewed relationship between Verizon Wireless and Radio Shack is indeed happening sooner than anyone thinks. Commencing March 5, it is being reported that some Radio Shack locations throughout the country will be offering Verizon Wireless phones. There will be a total of eight handsets for right now with possibly more coming soon. Solid evidence shows that the rumors are true and that Big Red is going back to the Shack. It’ll be a plus for the many consumers looking to compare phones and carriers in one place without the need to travel to different ones.

If I'm correct this mostly affects stores in the Midwest area, since they use to sell Alltel in those areas. I am interested to see if this will spread to stores on the east coast.

"The Shack is about to get back Verizon." I'm sure this could have been worded much better. Maybe "The Shack is about to get Verizon back." Any takers on the absurd grammar on this site?

Morning sickness is a misnomer since the symptoms can act up any time, even at night. If you are having a hard time with morning sickness try vitamin b6 for morning sickness along with some simple home remedy. It's a safer approach than taking medications during pregnancy.
