    Last night I was at Fry's Electronics ~ No one probably has heard of it before, pretty big here. Literally, actually!

    Anyways ~ I asked them if they had the iPad2 and this guy looked it up in his computer and they had 20 of the 64 Verizon.

    I asked him if there was one on display that I could play with and he said:

    "Oh no, the second one won't be a display model" I asked him why and he stated that "because, that is the way it is, do you understand?"

    Now, that was harsh, yes?:p

    But they had quite a few, apparently. And my daughter said last yesterday that Sac State will be selling them soon as well.

    **Never heard of Fry's Electronics**!!!!!!!

    Whenever I fly in to SFO, I'm straight onto the I-101, down to HillView Ave on El Camino and just a few yards further down, on the left hand side is a small road that leads to the Palo Alto Fry's. It's a mecca - my first stop - always!!

    In my pre-vegetarian days, I'm ashamed to say that a Big Mac was my favourite meal.....

    Just a note of caution. Before purchasing from Fry's it's a good idea to check their ratings with various online consumer sites. Suffice to say that the firm's reputation isn't the best...by far.

    To be fair Fry's is such a huge retailer it may not be surprising that they would generate many complaints. Still, my experience in the past on two separate occasions has convinced me to never give them a third chance.

    I couldn't hate the staff at Fry's any more than I do. They're horrible. The store though.. oh.. the store.

    We also have a store in the UK like Fry's - well, not quite, but perhaps our UK members will recognise it - begins with 'D' and ends with 's' - same type of store - OK, not so - well, US style - but the staff could be clones...

    Didn't mention the name so I don't get a legal injunction ....

    My techie husband and I like Fry's selection and prices (though we still price-compare), but the service can be spotty.

    My husband says he buys only unopened, original-packaging items from Fry's, because he returned something that was malfunctioning, told the clerk and later saw the item back on the shelf. Might be a one-time error, but who knows.

    Yeah, I've dealt with their bigger brother Pea Sea World, it's a desperate time when I have to go in there!

    I've been to the Fry's store in or near San Jose. Great store. Here on the east coast Micro Center is the place, like Fry's but more organized.

    I love the stock selection that Frys carries.

    I HATE that they want to try and treat me like a thief when I leave, by requesting to view and then writing on MINE receipt. When they request my receipt as I'm leaving I just say NO and leave.;)

    You would love shopping in eastern Europe, because they tend to check your receipt upon leaving everywhere, in Romania even when leaving a supermarket :D

    Btw. it's not so much treating you as a thief, as checking that the cashiers actually charge you for items. It's the cashiers which are not trusted.

    I have been to that one, Dale!


    Costco checks your receipt and your cart.


    Exactly.
