Palo Alto Fry?s closing
. Sad, but not the end of an era ? apparently the loss of lease
I remember visiting an early Fry?s (first?) in Sunnyvale (541 Lakeside Dr?, near Oakmead
and around the corner from Shugart Associates where I then worked). I marveled at the
selection of steaks, diet cokes, resistors, capacitors, ICs, etc. They had partially
converted a supermarket into an electronics store but I heard they at first kept the food
to keep some cash flow. I think I bought steaks J The engineers and technicians at
Shugart more than once ran over there to get breadboard parts.
