Fry’s Electronics full statement is below:
“While tariffs may play a role in securing some vendors, the competitiveness of the retail market is a significant factor.
All retailers are adjusting to provide their customers the best price, selection, and convenience of purchasing and obtaining the products they seek.
Fry's is no different. Our online business has grown and evolved over the years to meet the challenges of Amazon and others. Our customers like having the option of being able to shop in our stores, or ordering via Frys.com. Our same-day delivery in local markets is popular, and, again, we can ship to customers from any store[fulfillment center] that has product available.
Fry’s is in the process of converting most of its suppliers to consignment, which has resulted in temporary low-stock. Additional product is arriving at all our stores, and more will be in the pipeline and arriving over the next several weeks. This is a work-in-progress, and it has taken a bit longer than we'd like and originally had anticipated.
However, our customers can rest assured, Fry's intends to continue providing our valued customers with a great selection of quality electronics products, and knowledgeable service, now and in the future.
Customers also can order products on line for delivery/shipping from their local Fry's Store, or from any other Fry's store in our chain which has the products they want in stock.”
If Fry's No Electronics keeps fibbing like this, they won't even get a lump a coal from Santa this year.
