    Enjoy the frustration if you need help from someone, but if you know what you want (or can figure it out by reading the package) Fry's often has better prices and more inventory than other stores

    Good place to stop by. Electronic devices, parts, books, toys, etc. they (as usually in USA) do price match. Just google things before you would pay for them...

    Great staff who knows their area. Way better than best buy if you want people who can help you

    It's astounding that the crew of drooling zombies on cash register duty today could have even completed a job application. Good prices, poor service. I'm going back to online shopping.

    Service is a tossup. Some people know exactly where items are while others are totally clueless to a surge protector is. When in doubt, find another person to ask for help.

    Western themed Fry's, also the first store... Watch out for the creepy Western themed mannequins

    Call before you go if you are searching for a specific model and color. Website not accurate about items in stock.

    When the sales associates tells you it's the worst store in the chain and they are never fully stocked. Listen to the advice they have given and go to a real Fry's electronics.

    The 9th circle. Cashier alone takes at least 15 min regardless of how crowded the store is.

    Not all the employees know about their products. However there are some guys who are really experts on their stuff. Make sure you find those guys.

    Don't let other Foursquare tips fool you - NOT the original Fry's, that one is in Sunnyvale..

    Probably have most of the stuff you need but beware of the damn salespeople they hover around you way too much

    The longer the checkout line, the more tempting the snacks. Resist!

    Wow I can't believe it they really did just put a reduced price tag on the defective product. I guess its on to the shrinkwrapping station next.

    Without a doubt some of the worst service I have ever received from a retail biz. Here's a few tips, train your people better on the basics, and make exchanges a one-stop deal instead making me stand

    Don't let the employees working the refund area turn you away for reasonable exchanges. Ask for management if you seem to be getting b.s.

    The sandwiches are surprisingly good here. The deals are overrated.
