Fry’s Electronics is no more.
In business since 1985, the San Jose (Calif.)-based company has closed all its stores because of changes in the retail industry and effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The family-owned company operated 31 stores in nine states.
“It is hoped that undertaking the wind-down through this orderly process will reduce costs, avoid additional liabilities, minimize the impact on our customers, vendors, landlords and associates, and maximize the value of the Company’s assets for its creditors and other stakeholders,” Fry's said in a statement posted to its web site. “The Company is in the process of reaching out to its customers with repairs and consignment vendors to help them understand what this will mean for them and the proposed next steps.”
