{For years, RadioShack made a habit of collecting customers’ contact 
information at checkout. Now, the bankrupt retailer is putting that data 
on the auction block.

A list of RadioShack assets for sale 
includes more than 65 million customer names and physical addresses, and 
13 million email addresses. Bloomberg reports 
that the asset sale may include phone numbers and information on 
shopping habits as well.

The auction is already over, with Standard General—a hedge fund and 
RadioShack’s largest shareholder—reportedly emerging as the victor.}
