Ten RadioShack stores in the western suburbs are slated for possible closure after the technology retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Thursday, according to a statement and information on the RadioShack website.

The affected local stores are among the nearly 1,800 possible closures of RadioShack’s 4,000 company-owned U.S. locations.

RadioShack reached an agreement to sell up to 2,400 of its U.S. company-owned stores to Standard General, which plans to work with Sprint to establish a “store within a store” presence in up to 1,750 of the acquired stores, according to the website.

Dealer franchise stores were not included in the bankruptcy filing or Standard General agreement, the statement said.

There are 76 Illinois stores on the possible chopping block. Here’s a list of the 10 local locations:

Batavia: 21 N. Randall Road

Bloomingdale: 322 W. Army Trail Rd #110

Bolingbrook: Two River Plaza

Downers Grove: 220 Ogden Ave.

Glen Ellyn: 553 Roosevelt Road

Lombard: Roosevelt Road and Addison Avenue

North Riverside: North Riverside Park Mall

Naperville: Ogden Mall

Villa Park: 60 E. North Ave.

Wheaton: 1501 N. Main St.
