SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – Fry’s Electronics is going out of business.
KRON4 has confirmed that the legendary Bay Area retailer is permanently closing the doors of all stores across the country.
The company is expected to post information about the closure on its website early Wednesday.
Fry’s has more than two dozen stores, mostly in California and Texas.
There are 6 stores in Northern California, 8 in Southern California, 8 in Texas, 2 in Arizona, and one each in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington.
Every business has its own theme. The locations in the Bay Area are:
- Fremont: World’s Fair 1893
- San Jose: First astronomers, the Mayans, with attitudes from Chichenitza
- Sunnyvale: History of Silicon Valley
The Concord location was still in the works and had not yet received an issue.
According to the Company websiteFry’s was founded in Sunnyvale in 1985 by three brothers Fry – John, Randy and Dave – and Kathy Kolder.
The company wanted to “provide a one-stop shopping environment for the hi-tech professional” and sold over 50,000 electronic items in each store, ranging from 50,000 to 180,000 square feet.
It is currently unclear why the company is closing.
