Sacramento and Roseville (Northern California) the shelves are practically empty! Computer department is down to 5 laptops, 6 monitors, 4 desktops computers. I've also seen case's of bottled water where there used to be gaming keyboards on the shelves! The store's seem to be filling up with junk products, like oven mitts and children's coloring crayons, in place of computer component parts. In the computer department there used to be 8 sales personal on hand at all times, now there's just one.

Empty shelves in the San Diego location. All Managers moved to hourly, and employees moved to P/T status.
I was in Costa Mesa store the other day, it looks they are not doing that good (some empty shelves)
It’s kind of hard to answer this as bankruptcy can be just around the corner. I am not high up and I have no insider information but I see people quit more than usual, so that may be a warning sign. Also, I’ve noticed that some management level people are more lax than before, which may indicate that they gave up on Fry’s – not really sure, that’s me just reading the tea leaves.
I started working here while in junior college, now I graduated at the local JC and will not be going for my Bachelors’ degree soon – so, I do not mind staying working here for a year or two. I’ll go back to school in 2021 and I just hope that Fry’s continues to operate and do not go out of business before that.
Finally, I know that some people are supporting families on Fry’s wages – that’s not easy but it’s doable. Many of them are hardworking and honest people – for the sake of each one of them I pray that the management will get their sh-- together and save Fry’s.
