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
Topics regarding layoffs at Fry's Electronics
I went to the Renton, WA store last Monday (Dec, 9) and was SHOCKED at how empty the shelves were. Not 1 single hard drive, Literally 4 monitors on display, the entire Bose display is gone a sign that said they were 100% out of motherboards. I... — read more

All 4 Fry's locations in Texas near me in the Dallas/Fort Worth area are absolutely vacant now. I used to go there to check out computer components, motherboards, memory, cases, etc... but now...the old section for motherboards is stacked floor to... — read more
Went to San Marcos CA store for misc. exotic cables & adapters - the kind I used to always find there. Was astounded at how empty the shelves and few the staff. None of the several items I needed. Asked pointed questions about possible close-down... — 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
Today I noticed the computer parts section just stores cases of water now. All the remaining parts have been moved over by the laptops to like one shelf. The big BOSE display they had is gone. Plenty of water, fake perfumes, and as seen On TV items... — read more
San Diego visit over the weekend: Network Cards? Yea, we got one from "HiRo" RAM: Nothing current, just old returns. CPUS: Nope. Motherboards? One model, none on display. Power Supplies? Nope. Hard Drives? Nope. SSDs? Nope. 2' Ethernet Cables? Yea... — read more
There's been a rumor for awhile that the personal bankruptcy of one of the Fry brothers has dragged the company into a situation that affected their credit line. That is supposedly one of the real reasons they haven't been able to acquire new... — read more
Tonight I went to Fry's in Burbank, CA to buy a Western Digital External Hard Drive. I got to the store and rack upon rack were empty. I'm going throughout the whole store and noticing that entire aisles are totally empty. I'm having trouble finding... — read more
Just returned from the Sunnyvale one, looking for printer ink, and, as I haven't been to one it quite a while, was shocked at all the empty shelves...... Row after row of empty shelves. And, where there was stock, there was only a handful of items on... — read more

Went to Frys yesterday and asked a couple of sales people when new stock was coming and they said they didnt know. I headed back to the audio/video area where there used to be a pretty big Bose demo area and it was all gone. Replaced by DJ... — read more
Any truth to this?
We know by now it will keep going into the next year, but I don't see it making it past it.
Try to Call Fry's Duluth! I called there phone number and asked for operator. The phone was disconnected. Didn’t there PR statement say they were not closing any other stores but Palo Alto. Is the beginning of the end?
Let's see...Sales reps are clueless and being jerked around by management. No more excuses like Trump's tariffs are k–ling business. (If that is true, explain Microcenter, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.) There are no fulltime employees now except for... — read more
The Arlington Texas store is the same way. My wife and I went to the store on Sunday and found the same problem! Bare shelves! They are not replacing or replenishing the stock. Ask the clerk if they were closing. They replied, we were told that we... — read more
I bet Black Friday is the official end, anyone care to bet against me or pick another date?
Home Office-level idiocy, negligence, and greed across the board. No more transfer of items between stores (fired all the truck drivers). 1 Non-retail location already closed (Product Repair, now even broken items will be sold), rumors for that... — read more
Still no Samsung 970 Evo Plus of any capacity in stock at the local Frys. No big Black Friday push on the website.
They are obviously not anticipating a busy black friday. Store hours are 8am to 9pm for the day.
I had heard that Fry's electronics was going out of business. I decided to stop in there this morning to look around see what kind of sales they had. I said I heard you guys going out of business and the guy said no we're just having problems... — read more
After all the rumors and gossips, official information is out from several Vendors. Fry's is transitioning to the same business model as Staples and Office Depot. Vendors will send inventory in consignment and will get paid as their inventory is... — read more
Regarding the San Marcos store, it is definitely going down. I know. I work there. At least I think I do...Fry's rarely fires anybody. They just don't give any hours to the people they don't need anymore. They're just hoping we'll all kind of drift... — 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

Two 40' white/unlabeled semi trucks pulled into the Austin Fry's late Wednesday afternoon. I thought they were going to load new inventory into the store. They were empty trucks loading OUT the store after normal business hours. They spent a... — read more
My guess is that Amazon is going to take over all the Fry's locations. They put most Book Stores out of business and now open Amazon Book Stores. They put most Electronics Stores out of business and will now open Amazon Electronics Stores.
just went to fry's and saw the empty shelves. i asked a couple of employees why trhe stores were closing, because let's face it being this close to christmas their shelves would be overflowing with christmas items. both employees said there were... — 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.
Chill out and take it easy. It is nothing new for them at all: They have done this tactic before.
Stopped in at the Renton, WA Fry's on Thursday (10/10/2019), and it was a barren wasteland compared to its former glory. I wanted to get a gaming keyboard, and there was one weird brand to choose from. I asked the employee if Fry's was going out of... — read more
Black Friday 2017 was bomb. Slept outside with hundreds of others, by 5Am the line was around the building. Waited in line for 6 hours two times throughout the day. Man that was a fun day.
