I just came back from the Oxnard store. The parking lot was empty. I saw plenty of empty shelves. There was only one cashier. All other registers closed. The whole store was quiet. No music playing. I found an associate and he asked me if he could help me find anything. I told him that this will be difficult since there’s almost no inventor he left. I asked him if they’re going out of business. He said that they’re not going out of business they’re staying open. I couldn’t resist to ask why he thinks so was half the store empty and nobody working there one week before Christmas. He just shrugged. I also ask the security guard at the door. He said nobody is telling them anything. It looks like they will be done by the end of this year.

The fountain valley store was always an amazing place, but not anymore. Now kust a shell with empty shelves and few employees. The fullerton store is even worse. I really liked frys for all my electronic needs. Sadness
I was at the Oxnard store yesterday; the store had almost no customers and the shelves were mostly empty. All Apple products were gone. The only person working in computers (there were almost no computers available) said that they haven’t stocked the shelves for many months, but knowing the skuttlebutt about the possibility of Fry’s closing, added that his paychecks were still good. With a shrug of his shoulders the guy at the cash register said that management insists that the company is viable and will continue; there was a palpable sense of insecurity amongst the employees. Working with the fear of layoffs has to be a real bummer. Fry’s has been a great store, but it seems obvious that its management is deliberately k–ling it. It really is such a shame to see it go. With effectively no inventory to choose from, I made two large computer purchases over the past month from Best Buy in Northridge instead (the customer service at the Best Buy in Oxnard is awful)
I was in the Oxnard store last week. No inventory of value in the store. Just as seen on /TV stuff, No computers! I asked about going out of business and was told no they were "building inventory". Employees had been there over a decade. No security at the door as there was nothing to steal
I was at the Fountain Valley store yesterday, 12/17/19, and it was the same story. Shelves and store empty. Very few employees and only one register open. I asked if they were closing and was told they were renegotiating prices with their vendors. Not likely in my book. Too bad. I liked Fry's.
