Hello Fry's employees,
I wanted to make a quick post to explain what may be going on with your stores. It's actually good news for you, so keep your head up:
Years ago, I used to work at a shopping mall. The mall closed. Sears continued to pay their lease - EVEN AFTER THE MALL CLOSED.
This might seem crazy - why would you pay the lease on a store that's not even open?
The reason that Sears did this, was because they wanted the landlord to 'buy out' their lease.
For instance, Sears in Denver had a lease that's 99 years long.
Yes, you read that right : 99 YEARS
I don't work for Fry's, but I am guessing that Fry's is in a similar situation. Basically they may be negotiating an exit from their lease.
If true, this can take YEARS. The Sears store in Denver took something like ten years for them to sort it out.
So keep coming to work, you never know how long this is going to to go. It could be quite a while.
