The Sacramento area will lose 12 more RadioShack stores, or about half the remaining stores in the region, after the ailing retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Thursday.

RadioShack said it plans to liquidate about half of its 4,000 stores nationwide as a result of the bankruptcy. The others would be turned into Sprint Corp. mobile phone outlets under a tentative agreement. The RadioShack website lists 11 stores in greater Sacramento that don’t show up on the company’s roster of stores designated for closure and presumably will be converted.

RadioShack closed stores last year on Freeport Boulevard and Bruceville Road.

Documents filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware list 12 sites that are targeted for liquidation:

▪  Roseville, 1921 Douglas Boulevard.

▪  Elk Grove, 8419 Elk Grove-Florin Road.

▪  Sacramento, Natomas Marketplace on Truxel Road.

▪  Rancho Cordova, Olson Drive.

▪  Citrus Heights, 7405 Greenback Lane.

▪  Rocklin, 4791 Granite Drive.

▪  Sacramento, Rosemont Plaza on Kiefer Boulevard.

▪  Sacramento, 5349 Elkhorn Boulevard.

▪  Folsom, 1014 Riley St.

▪  Auburn, 2685 Bell Rd.

▪  Sacramento, Florin Towne Centre on Florin Road.

▪  Sacramento, 5200 Stockton Boulevard.

Some of the stores are expected to close by Feb. 17, although some will stay open as late as March 31.

Those stores not included on the shutdown list, and presumably intended to be converted into Sprint stores, are:

▪  Roseville, Pleasant Grove Marketplace.

▪  El Dorado Hills, Green Valley Marketplace.

▪  Sacramento, Camellia Shopping Center on Folsom Boulevard.

▪  West Sacramento, Ikea Court.

▪  Woodland, County Fair Mall.

▪  Davis, G Street.

▪  Sacramento, Lake Crest Village.

▪  Sacramento, Loehmann’s Plaza.

▪  Carmichael, Manzanita Avenue.

▪  Elk Grove, 8641 Elk Grove Boulevard.

▪  North Highlands, Watt Avenue.
