I called the store and it was near closing time, but the operator told me she would connect me to an associate and I was on hold for 15 minutes. I decided to hang up. I called back the next morning I was on hold for 5 minutes, and the technician was very polite, helpful and knowledgeable. I think they just need a better system or maybe to develop internal operations to be more efficient. Otherwise, I think this could be an awesome business-best wishes.

I went to Fry's to look at Blu-ray players and really was interested in the wireless adapters. The staff was completely clueless, all they could do was tell me the general direction the items were in. After finding the players, it took me 20 minutes of wandering until I could even get a staff member to talk to me. Then they had no clue. I left the store without making a purchase, next stop Radio Shak, their customer service and staff knowledge is 1000% percent better.
I went to Fry's website and filed a complaint, it says someone will contact you within 24 hours, well, it is now past 72 hours,,,,,still waiting...

Sales People Are Clueless: Tried to buy a Lenovo laptop, after checking he had the model in inventory, I was told they did not have any. We then went to the next model up same results, we then went to the next model which he said thay had 3 in stock, same results. When I finally found something they had in stock, it was an OPEN BOX ITEM! Someday I will go to FRY's and buy something they have, but someday is now a long way away.

Competitive prices, great return policy, but sub-par staff knowledge. Only buy products you have researched yourself as the employees have very limited knowledge and will readily relay inaccurate information about their products.

Fry's has the largest selection of electronics of any retail store. Their prices are decent for some components. Fry's really fails in the realm of customer service. Employees are numerous and unfriendly. It seems that every purchase is surrounded in a mile of red tape. Returns are also a nightmare and require waiting in two lines if everything goes smoothly. Be prepared to ask for a manager because employees can't do anything. Also getting to this location is a headache even at slow times. Avoid Fry's. Buy online. It's faster, cheaper and you'll get better customer service.

I have spent thousands of $$$ at this store because you can't beat the selection and most of the prices! However, their customer service is quite lacking. Whenever I needed help within a few minutes I would realize that I knew more than the staff including management! I would love to work at this location because I would bring their customer service abilities to a new and improved level

I have never seen a store bigger than Fry's for electronics, but the customer service there is horrible. It takes forever to return or exchange something.

Back at home we only have Best Buy and I really wish we had Frys instead. This place has so much variety and is so much fun to walk through. I almost guarantee that you will find everything you need there. The only thing is you want to shop when there are sales. If not then it gets pricey. Also, there's a lot of sales associates walking around to answer your questions.

This is the place I go if I need electronics or computer parts. They carry lots of stuff and its always fun to walk around and browse. Their prices are pretty decent. The only thing that I would say I didnt like about this place is trying to return something. It takes forever. But if you know what you're going to get or if you get the right parts, you dont have to worry about returning the items as much and dealing with the long wait.

PROS: lots of stuff at decent prices
CONS: long long wait if you are trying to return merchandise

Frys is the store to go to find that one item that you cant seem to find anywhere. This store is huge and has everything electronics related, soldering tools, appliances, DVDs, you name it theyve got it. The prices of the small items here are way cheaper than those found at other stores, like Radio Shack, etc. The employees are knowledgeable about their department and are often very helpful. They have great sales to look forward to as well.

I bought a laptop at Fry's. I also bought the warranty on it and I took my laptop back to Fry's because the network card stopped working after 1 1/2 months. I waitied in the store a total of an hour. The phone rang multiple times and no one answered it. I was given a loaner laptop and it didn't work (it was infected with spyware and the date and time would not stay correct to name a few things). Please note, the loaner laptop I was using was packaged to sell (who sells merchandise like that?). I called to speak with the store manager and I didnt get to speak with him. Instead I got an employee that was short with me and stated she was just the middle man. I had to call multiple times to get the status of my laptop and after 13 days it still hasn't even been looked at let alone repaired.

Fry's is a great spot, this one is right off the 15 and is huge. They virtually have almost everything you need and want for home electircal devices like computers, cameras, game consoles, t.v.'s, etc. They have aisles and aisles of computer wires and cords and plugs and drives and software and everything. If you're looking for anything computer check out Fry's before the other guys.

Virtually everything you could need in the way of electronics exists at Fry's. Prepare for an overloaded parking lot- I've never seen the store NOT looking like the holiday season-- and a vast werehouse where you can easily get lost. Their daily newspaper ads are handy and the items usually on display.
They also carry appliances, but often those are not the best deals to be had in town-- it pays to shop around.

This place used to be incredible universe. When they went under, Fry's took over and hey I can't complain. They offer great deals on all kind of electronics. They are really flexible on their return policy and even price match their competitors. The place is like costco in terms of size and has about everything you can ask for as far as electronics goes. Sometimes I just go there and read magazines...

I was just here yesterday and I must say, theyve done a great job in the past few years for San Diegans. The combination of lots and lots of stuff, low prices, and numerous cashier lines (over 40!), make Frys one of the most painless shopping sprees you might have in your lifetime. The staff is awesome (although I did see an outburst from one worker once) and is there to help you all the time. Frys is probably my most favorite electronics store in town.

Fry's is a one stop shop for electronics. They have everything, from computers to games offered at pretty low prices but it's pretty hard to receive service because they're always so packed.

This is the largest electronic store I've ever been to. They even have a cafe so when you get tired of looking around, or work up an appetite walking through this place, you can rest your feet and feed your face. I recently bought a new laptop here and I was very pleased with the service I received. It probably helped that my dad was with me, so they knew we meant business. I told them my price range and what features I wanted, and they came back with some great options. They have the best selection I've ever seen, and competitive prices as well. For any of your electronic needs, know you can find it at Frys, and that you will be assisted by people who know what they're talking about.

I live in La Mesa and still make the drive to Fry's to purchase electronics constantly because I have found they have the most affordable items. The line is usually long but moves quickly and parking can be a hassle, but always available (just park further and walk). Staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Fry's Electronics is an amazing electronic store. They have everything imaginable. The store is bigger than swapmeet and you can always find deals from the newspaper. They have a good selection, decent pricing, and liberal return policy.

Frys Electronics, while a decent resource for computer components and consumer electronics, can still be a bit of a trying experience. The warehouse setup allows for a large selection but is difficult to navigate, and the labeled departments seem to be suggestions more than anything else. When it comes to customer service, the employees seem to either not know the answer or not care enough to put any real effort into helping one out. In other words, Frys is a good resource if one has already done the research and has an idea of what one needs. Otherwise, prepare for some frustrations.

PROS: Good selection, decent pricing, liberal return policy.
CONS: Poor organization, occasionally surly and unhelpful employees.

Fry's has to be the best electronics store in San Diego. They have warehouse prices (on almost everything!) and are probably the closest to online pricing around town. I just went yesterday to grab some hot items (how about a hotdog and drink for a quarter?) and always have a great time just walking around the aisles. This place is fun for everyone, whether you are shopping or bored.

Fry's has been around for not too long, but they have become a major electronics store in my mind. This is the only place that I will actually check weekly advertisements on, because this store is HUGE. They have everything that a normal person would need, and more. This is the place for home entertainment systems, computers, video games, and more.

Everything in this store is cheaper than other stores. I don't know how they do it, maybe because they sacrifice customer service. The store is bigger than swapmeet and you can always find deals from the newspaper. The checkout line is ridiculous. There are over 40 registers but it still takes a while go through since so many people shop here.
