Business beat: Home care provider plans to expand in Grayson, Ky.

GRAYSON, Ky. – FirstLight Home Care, a provider of non-medical home care, announced last week it will open an office in Grayson, Kentucky, to serve residents throughout the area.

The new FirstLight location is scheduled to open in July and will be owned and operated by Grayson residents Shadow and Rebekah Skaggs.

“Shadow and Rebekah recognized a growing need in the Grayson area for the brand of service FirstLight offers and stepped up to the challenge,” said Jeff Bevis, FirstLight Home Care co-founder and CEO. “We’re confident the service provided by Shadow, Rebekah and their caregivers will fill the needs of the communities they serve. This will be a great addition to the Grayson area.”

The new FirstLight Home Care office will serve area seniors, adults with disabilities, new mothers, those recovering from surgery and other adults in need of assistance, Bevis added.

“FirstLight caregivers help with many needs, from personal hygiene and household duties such as cooking, cleaning and running errands, to mobility assistance and dementia care,” he said.

Since opening its first franchise location in 2010, FirstLight Home Care has experienced steady growth and is now operating more than 145 locations in 32 states throughout the United States.

RADIOSHACK: Electronics retailer RadioShack has closed more than 1,000 stores since Memorial Day weekend, saying it will only have 70 company-owned stores remaining, according to a report published in the USA Today last week.

Also remaining are about 500 dealer-owned stores, the USA Today reported.

The store on 5th Avenue in Huntington had remained open amid previous RadioShack closings, but it is now closed as well.

The meltdown of what was once one of America’s best-known chains represents a strange turn of events considering it was only in March that parent General Wireless Operations filed for bankruptcy protection and proposed closing only about 200 RadioShack stores.

The remaining company-owned stores will include only seven states, with the greatest concentration in New York, Pennsylvania and RadioShack’s native Texas, according to the report.

In its heyday, Fort Worth-based RadioShack had 7,300 stores and could claim that it had a store within three miles of 95 percent of all American households. But like so many other retailers, it has become a victim of the Internet.

RadioShack began in Boston in 1921.
