It has been another week of U.S. retail carnage , with multiple chains reporting store closures. Electronics retailer RadioShack has closed more than 1,000 stores since Memorial Day weekend and has become a virtual goner, saying it will only have 72 company-owned stores remaining by Thursday.

The size of the company's workforce was unclear on Wednesday‎ evening, but an administration process would be likely to endanger hundreds of jobs.

If a rescue deal cannot be agreed, it would be the latest collapse of a well-known British retailer, following chains including Maplin and Toys R Us, both of which have gone bust in the last 18 months.

Tens of thousands of jobs have been lost elsewhere across the sector, with companies such as Debenhams, House of Fraser and New Look all closing stores and slashing jobs.

Most recently, Sir Philip Green's Arcadia Group, which owns Top Shop, has been forced to beg creditors for approval for a rescue deal.

On Friday, Monsoon Accessorize will unveil a plan to seek steep rent cuts in exchange for handing landlords a £10m share of future profits.
