Topics regarding layoffs at Fry's Electronics
My life turned upside down in one day. Couldn’t they wait a little longer instead of doing this to people at the worst time possible? I’m very worried. I tried job hunting even before this happened but I couldn’t find anything. UI is... — read more
Is it possible that they did not have decency to give any notice for the stores closure? That's just terrible. It’s no surprise, but still... I still can’t help but wonder how they can be so cold towards workers who have obviously always been just... — read more
I am not familiar with the situation in the company because I left Fry’s while this company was still doing great and before Newegg and Amazon appeared. However, I am very saddened by the new headlines in the media. Good luck to everyone!

Fry's is done. I shouldve changed jobs years ago
Wondering if anyone else received word but it sounds like Fry's is reaching out to tell employees they are shutting down.
I don't get it, how long can this place keep people employed and doors open at locations that have empty shelves and barely any foot traffic as a direct result of that? I'm usually an optimist and I keep stopping by every month or so to see if... — read more

Every time I pass by my local Fry's I'm shocked to see it's still open. I used to love this place. It was my go to when putting together a desktop so out of nostalgia I still go in sometimes. To be honest, I really think I should stop. I'm not sure... — read more

This place is on its last legs, no doubt. There have been so many store closures and at my location it looks threadbare, yet we manage to hang on by the skin of our teeth. I don’t know whether I should feel sorry for us, or if we should pat ourselves... — read more
Fry's Electronics has survived worse. Mark my words, we'll be back. Maybe not bigger and better than ever, but we'll be back. It's like some people here are hoping to see the company fail. What do you get out of that? You should be cheering us on... — read more
Things were bad long before the pandemic hit, it was depressing to see so many empty shelves in the store. Then add the pandemic into the mix along with a completely messed up supply chain and what you get is a total disaster. I was truly hoping we... — read more
This is my prediction. Stores are empty.
Went into my local Fry’s yesterday in Austin not thinking much of it until I walked into what had to have been a more than 50% empty store inventory wise. Sections of the store had nothing in it. I just could not believe the lack of product and the... — read more

Just got back from Fry's Electronics in Phoenix. It was devastating. I always used to get excited to go, not just for the hardware, but for those other little gamer-specific things like Bawls Energy Drinks. It feels like a haunted house now... — read more
I've been a long time shopper at Fry's and from a purely "outside" perspective I honestly believe they failed for two main reasons. 1) They tried to do too much. When I think Fry's Electronics I think primarily computers and PC parts, and... — read more
Was this pandemic the final nail in the coffin?
Thats their HQ!! Bye-bye Fry's :( https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/04/15/huge-tech-campus-eyed-in-north-san-jose-at-frys-electronics-site/
Pessimistic Customers said that it was “Scary “ to see empty shelves at frys . What’s scarier? Frys empty shelves or Corona Virus? Because now I’m witnessing everyone panic over this “Deadly Destructive Pestilence. “You will see it with your own eyes... — read more
End of the month. Nothing to buy in there anyway. End of an era
Well. Stores are empty. Didnt have rca cables. And now need a printer usb cable. Out of stock online and in store. Yeah. Its toast. Its a shame. Used to be an event going there. Now its just depressing
Was just there today. 75% empty shelves. I am just a customer, but I can tell by what I see that Frys is in trouble.
Consignment model? No, they are closing stores...Palo Alto, Diluty, Anaheim, Woodland Hills.
Has the model changed? Are you on a Consignment Model now like Staples?
Sears or Fry's? I was certain Sears will be long gone by now but somehow it's still standing and shows no signs of giving up any time soon - even if there is only one store left in the end. Meanwhile, Fry's has started dropping stores one by... — read more

Do you know if I can get my money back? What will happen to my gift card if Fry's goes belly up?
If Fry's will continue on as is the thought shared by some here then explain how a retail chain stays healthy financially by keeping expensive shelves bare of goods? I was just in the Roseville, CA store last weekend to use a gift card I got for... — read more
