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 ceiling with cases of bottled water. The new section for motherboards has four motherboards on the should. FOUR!!! absolutely ZERO video cards, only 12 PC monitors on display, all display areas nearly empty, yet at the front of the store it looks like a damn flea market...cheap c-ap you would expect to see in a dollar store.
I asked one of the few employees I managed to find on staff the last time I went when they were getting any new merchandise because the store has looked like it had for months...he said, and I quote: "We have no idea. Management isn't telling us anything, and they have the staff down to a bare skeleton crew at this point." I then tracked down a manager and point-blank asked him when the store was closing just to see if he would admit to it...and his reply was "All Texas stores are going to close within the next 8 months, if not sooner."
So if all of Fry's locations in the Dallas area are clsing...I would fully expect others to close, if not the entire company. They've been on a downhill slide for a long time now.
