    There's plenty of speculation about when Fry's Electronics will open in Boca Park, 700 S. Rampart Blvd., especially with the sounds of hammering coming from inside.art Blvd., especially with the sounds of hammering coming from inside.  
     
    Manuel Valerio, community relations manager for Fry's, said the company was looking to get the store open "as soon as possible" but did not divulge a timeline.  
     
    "As we've said all along, we're very excited to come into the north part of the Las Vegas region," he said. "We know there are lots of customers there in the area who shop at our current location down by the airport. But we want to make it more convenient for people to be able to access our stores, and having two in the region is certainly going to be a great benefit to our customers."  
     
    He declined to confirm whether the company was busy with the interior build-out.  
     
    "We're in 2012," Valerio said in December, "so you might presume that if all goes well, and we're fortunate and have no delays, perhaps sometime in 2013. But again, I cannot give you an exact time frame."  
     
    The 50,000-square-foot space formerly housed the Great Indoors, a Sears product, which included interior showroom space. All that would have to be torn out before Fry's could move forward with building out the interior for its own needs.  
     
    Ward 2 City Councilman Bob Beers said he had not heard of any movement on Fry's but said that nothing was likely to come on the City Council's agenda to alert him.  
     
    "The city staff is set up to entertain plans to build structures into which (improvements) are intended to go and monitor that the construction," he said. "It's done in a manner so that these facilities are safe for our people. But that all happens without any council knowledge ... hammering and sawing, that's a good sign. I may just have to walk by there."  
     
    City records show that the last official movement on the property was Nov. 14, when permits were issued for tenant improvements for "Fry's Electronics No. 51." The total cost of the permits was $48,832, indicating a flurry of activity was planned. As of Dec. 14, the inspectors had yet to go out.  
     
    The filing included final electrical, final mechanical, plumbing, fire final for fire codes and final building inspection. All those have to be signed off on before the building can be issued a certificate of occupancy.  
     
    A peek through the windows on Dec. 20 showed no observable interior build-out. Meanwhile, area shops and stores are looking forward to their new neighbor.  
     
    "We heard the rumor but wasn't sure how much was happening," said Eric Larsen, outreach specialist for REI, which has a store nearby. "We'll be excited to see more traffic ... Fry's has a huge range of products, not just computers but cameras, tripods and camcorders, things used by people who appreciate the great outdoors."  
     
    Luiz Oliveira, owner of Sambalatte Cafe in Boca Park, said he couldn't wait to welcome Fry's to the shopping center.  
     
    "It'll drive the traffic in here on a daily basis," he said. "Have you seen how busy they are, down on the Strip? They're busy all day long, every day of the week. That, with Tivoli Village opening up ---- this whole area will see the synergy."

    The space owned by Fry's Electronics that formerly housed the Great Indoors at Boca Park is seen Dec. 20. Permits have been pulled to address the interior of the 150,000-square-foot space, where Fry's hopes to open sometime this year."

    Given the malcreants that Fry's hires and attracts, it'll be even less classy.

    It ain't gonna open folks!!! If they had to do away with returns to cut labor and absorb a huge payout due to the sexual harrassment  
    incident that happened in the Renton, WA store, the home oriffice folks would still have their head still stuck behind their asses for making  
    that call to proceed in opening a store at this location. It's bad enough they have to pay labor and utilities at all the other frys stores.

    How does Fry's stay in business? They're competing against companies like Newegg and Amazon who don't have to lease buildings for retail locations, pay salesmen, cashiers, returns associates, etc..

    Those other companies only need:
    - warehouses which they can locate in the middle of Montana or wherever else land is dirt cheap
    - a few workers for each mostly automated warehouses
    - corporate employees

    Guest: How does Fry's stay in business? They're competing against companies like Newegg and Amazon who don't have to lease buildings for retail locations, pay salesmen, cashiers, returns associates, etc..
    Because there's always going to be the "gotta have it NOW" customer who will be willing to pay higher prices because they need something today, in addition to people who aren't comfortable shopping online for whatever reason.
