Fry's says that they are doing fine.
BUT, that they are moving to a "consignment" model - they now plan to pay
their suppliers only AFTER the merchandise sells.
Or at least that is what they are telling their creditors.
They could revitalize the stores, if they would add Jolt Cola, Canfield's
Diet Chocolate Fudge soda, potato chips, cookies, toothpaste, rosin-core
lead solder, and electronic components. Maybe even collaborate with
Fat-Brain to open a computer literacy bookstore.

. Sad, but not the end of an era ??? apparently the loss of lease
When I last visited a couple months ago, the one in Wilsonville, Oregon hadn???t done any
restocking to speak of (except a couple video games) for months. The shelves were largely
bare, and all the places they used to store excess stock were empty. I might be down that
way in a few weeks, if so I???ll try to check on the status of the store. I know in
October there was a news article or two claiming they were in the process of restocking,
but based on my last visit, they seem dead.
