Fry’s Electronics Shutters All Stores Nationwide [VIDEO]

The Associated Press reports:

Fry’s Electronics, the go-to chain for tech tinkerers looking for an obscure part, is closing for good. The company, perhaps even more well known for outlandish themes at some of its stores, from Aztec to “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” said Wednesday in an online posting that the COVID-19 pandemic had made it impossible to continue. The chain was concentrated on the West Coast, but had 31 stores in nine states. It was founded 36 years ago.
