Fry's Closing?
« on: November 24, 2020, 09:25:06 AM »
I was wondering why Fry's did not put out a Black Friday ad.  Fry's was the always the big bad retailer when I was growing up.   

The owners are bad people but the employees would be hurt.

After our story, numerous other news outlets including CBS, San Jose Mercury News, and PC Gamer have begun to speculate, as well as obtain denials from Fry's Electronics spokesperson Manuel Valerio that the company has no immediate plans to go out of business. Even though it is closing its Palo Alto store, the company insists it has no plans to close its other 33 stores in nine states.

One store manager commented to us that they are clearing out the existing product to make room for new vendors. We specifically asked what vendor was replacing copies of Microsoft Windows, which at that point, the manager refused to make any additional comments. On recent store visits to Bay Area and Southern California stores, not only have we seen little to no new products arriving, but employees have told us that what new products we are seeing are mostly inter-store transfers.

Wow. Fry's was always so messy... Micro Center is closer and more convenient. :)
