Only because they have the sales figures to dictate they can make the decision (same with Apple; they buy on consignment for their store supply of 3rd party items). No one is going to give Fry's product on consignment when there's doubt the stock will ever sell of that Fry's will ever pay for it.

Re: Fry's Electronics is dying

If you have no interest in the emails, why not unsubscribe? You even hoard email.
Uh, I DO have interest in them if they actually have stuff on sale. At this point unsubscribing would just be pouring salt in their wounds.

Speculation was they'd be fully stocked again for Black Friday, but we'll see how that ends up. If the store is still empty, I want to go in and sing this:

Re: Fry's Electronics is dying

So, did anyone bother going to Fry's today? Did they get any new product in at all?

Re: Fry's Electronics is dying

Well, here's the answer to that question:


Much happier times:


Fry's is still saying they'll eventually get more stock in, but I figured if they couldn't get any in by Black Friday then there's just no hope. They were my favorite store and this situation would be hilarious if it were anyone else. At this rate even if they don't close they literally won't have anything left to sell.

Re: Fry's Electronics is dying

I just received an email today with their "Deals of the day". Here is the link:
https://www.frys.com/email/191202_46...omocode/684370
Some are in-store and online but a few are in-store only. I wonder how many stores actually have the items as most are pretty $$$ items.

Re: Fry's Electronics is dying

I didn't even bother opening the email I got from them today but remember the subject was "Software Downloads Sale!" Guess they can't run out of downloads- or can they?

Read one comment from someone saying they ordered a game system online from them on Thanksgiving and it was immediately cancelled. Wondering if any employees have broken down and shouted "We can't go on like this!"
