Store is vacant. 35 registers but two were open. No one at customer service. Staff that were there didn't seem very happy to be there. I asked about tablets (Surface Pro) and they said they don't carry tablets outside of the iPad. Demo computers are... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Fry's Electronics
I literally had to do a double-take to make sure I wasn't in some post-apocalyptic movie. I'd say about 50% of the shelf space was empty....but they did have about 7 years stock of bottled water.
The store is struggling to attract old and new customers. They are too slow to adjust to the changing time. Most younger generation (Millennials) would rather shop online like Amazon. Fry's store is way too big for its own good. Back in the... — read more
I do not have the list, I need one. I will list all stores below. The list below is the list of currently open stores, NOT the list of stores that will be closing. The list is accurate as of 7/16/2019. Here it... — read more
Growing up as a kid, Fry’s was always the place I would go for Electronics... and as a Blu-Ray/4K disc collector, Fry’s was where I would always go to get the newest Blu-Ray/4K disc releases, since they would always have it for the lowest price... — read more
Earlier this week I went into Frys Las Vegas to purchase a GoPro Hero 7 black. I checked the website to make sure they had one in stock but when I arrived I was told the one in stock was sitting in a cage waiting for someone who had reserved it... — read more
It's not looking good. Fry's in Wilsonville was a ghost town last night. I soon discovered that many things were not being restocked and had been sold out for weeks or longer. When I thought it was just the mice and other pointing devices not... — read more
Writing is on the wall. The glory days are gone. Fortunately the economy is the hottest it has been in 50 years so even the less talented employees should have no problem getting a new job. RIP, Fry’s. I will remember the better days as a fulfilling... — read more
Went to Fry's in Anaheim today. I last went in November and the store was busy as usual, but today it seriously looked like a ghost town. At first glance the shelves looked full but I soon realized that is ONLY the outer shelves that you can see when... — read more
Any truth to this?
What's your prediction? When is Fry's Electronics going to declare bankruptcy?
I walked into Frys for the first time in Downer's Grove, IL. My first impression was "Is this company going out of business?" My first time in this store!! Lots of people working. Few customers. I walked by 6...SIX workers, and NOT ONE OF THEM... — read more
The company I work for sells products to Fry's. They are historically horrible payers, known throughout the electronics industry. However, at this point they owe for 9 months worth of purchases. We've frozen shipping to them until they pay. I've been... — read more
You employ lack luster individuals, with minimum to zero potential and an entitled attitude, you’re left with the 2018 line up. Not to mention California making it impossible to fire anybody. They have trimmed the fat, and can look towards the... — read more
In all honesty, I'm not sure how we are even still open. Our sales have been dropping constantly for years - we see fewer and fewer people come in each day, and even fewer of them actually end up buying something. Is this the case with all locations?... — read more
Most all the shelves were half empty. The employee I spoke to said it's gonna close before the EOY. Even the once motivated gestappo at the exit door didn't go thru my whole bag, just marked the receipt and gestured goodbye.
they cut all full timers pay to part time, demoted managers to salesman pay (min wage). the shelves are bare and we’re only getting merchandise from other stores. if anyone tells you we aren’t going out of business they’re lying to you. the signs are... — read more
Through the grapevine I keep hearing various ideas being thrown around and would like some closure. Does anyone know what the 5 year plan for Fry’s is at this point!
I shop at the Burbank Fry's and it is always well stocked until last week. I have never seen the shelves so bare. In fact the reason I go to that store is because of the well stocked shelves compared to a Fry's closer to me in Woodland Hills. I also... — read more
A Class action complaint should be filed for: Breach of Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing, Negligence, Discrimination and Unlawful Practices. The hand selected employees were forcefully asked to sign the change from full-time to part-time and... — read more
Shelves were empty.Hooks on wall were bare. Asked an employee about the situation and was told he was new there but said everyone is concerned about the situation. Whole isles in the tv section was empty. The place is starting to look like a ghost... — read more
Our Fry's lost three people last week - one of them a manager. This has never happened before - we always have people coming and going, but never at the same time like this. Do you think they might know something is coming and are getting out in... — read more
Does anybody know if there is a place online where we can see the list of all Fry's locations that have closed so far this year? I keep hearing from people that this or that place has closed, but I can't find any of it online. Frankly, I just want to... — read more
With the constant 20% off coupons, and bare shelves, Fry's has to be circling the drain. The number of computer and monitors has been decreased so much, that one can only wonder why. Their creditors must not be extending them credit. Maybe all of... — read more
I was on a break and chumming it up with one of my managers at Fry’s. We were discussing ways that I could move up the ladder. I asked him how he was able to do it and his reply was that he knew all the ‘right’ people. I thought he was pulling my leg... — read more
I don’t know about other stores at Fry’s but the one I worked at had an environment that was so stressful it left me completely drained by the end of my shift. Retail can be a fun experience, meeting customers, the challenge of the sale, etc, yet it... — read more

Not sure if someone has info on what stores are closing, what the plans are as it relates to real estate and what's the plan for layoffs and severance pay for Fry's employees.
That's the word on the street, I know it's a rumor but I hard this from so many folks
Fry's is laying off the department supervisors by the end of this month, this is true for at least our location in Southern California. Rumor is that sales people will replace the merchandisers in the future and they will be responsible for their... — read more
Frys sales work harder at "not" giving customers best deals because it comes out of their paychecks. Wow also true that associates that give some of the best customer service, are usually the ones on draw (owe fry's money). And only when they turn to... — read more

Anytime soon . Fry's electronics is writing a step by step book on how to go bankrupt. They're also following the steps.
There are many indicators that Fry's might be going BK very soon. Circuit City, anyone?
Do you know what's a typical severance package at Fry's
Word from around the HQ is an almost done deal to be restructuring the few stores left up in Northern California. Layoffs and freeze hiring, forced leaves and Employees on medical leave will not have their positions back. Not only would the line... — read more
