Over Fried

Posted in General at Tuesday, April 05, 2005 3:35 AM Pacific Daylight Time

Yesterday I stopped by Fry's Electronics after work hoping to pick up a MiniSD card for my new phone (more about that later). I had done some price checking online earlier in the day and was leaning toward buying the SanDisk 512MB card from Buy.com. I was even hoping to find not only the 512MB card, but maybe even the new 1GB MiniSD card (which actually isn't out yet). Sadly, the biggest MiniSD card they had was 256MB and their price was higher than Buy.com's price on the 512MB card.

I have been visiting Fry's less and less, but I think yesterday's visit was my own Fried Out experience. After seeing the higher price (and having to wait in line for 15 minutes to just ask about what they had in stock) suddenly Fry's lost its grip on me. I used to love going to Fry's to check out the latest and greatest, but now it just looks like a bunch of poorly organized, out-of-date, over-priced stuff that may or may not have already been bought by someone else and returned.

So I ended up going back to the hotel and buying from Buy.com. Sure, I'll have to wait a couple of days to get my card, but since my phone hasn't been activated yet that's ok.

I think Fry's will realy get into trouble, I am feeling the same way like you and I am sure there are more and more former loyal Fry's customers looking around for new place to go shopping.
