Took my son to the Renton (WA) store to get some RAM and RGB LED lights for a gaming computer he is building for a friend. It was like Zombieland there. Few cars in the parking lot, a few people wandering around inside, almost no staff there, and the shelves looked like they had been scavenged by post-apocalyptic looters. It was very weird and we could not get out of there quickly enough.

Three years ago, that place would have been packed!

I posted a comment earlier today, Aug 1 2019 about the Renton store being out of stock on most items. I just now tried to go to their website, www.frys.com, and got a 503 error, service not available. Another sign the end is near! Really sad! 😱☹️

I would guarantee they are closing. Store is empty. No employees to help with anything.

The person who answered first is grammatically challenged, but not incorrect.

Frys.com purchases ship out of a warehouse, and it has already closed down. You can still make purchases on Frys.com to pick up items in-store. They have eliminated almost all the manager positions, and demoted all supervisors to sales, and sales managers to “Specialists”, which are really just salesmen with keys to the building. Commissions were cut to about 25-40% of what they used to be, along with the employee hours. All store to store transfers of any kind have been stopped, and you can no longer place any Special Orders to order a specific item that they don’t normally carry from one of the manufacturers.

That sounds to me like they are preparing to close. What does it sound like to you?

The store is not as stocked add it used to be, but it's still busy. I hear the rumors, but then they are still there every time I go

No, the person who answered first doesn't know anything. They are not closing one of the top producing stores, nor will they be closing any other stores anytime soon.
