Aviator08: Nothing pisses me off more than when I have to do a price match with amazon when shipping is charged but only if you do not have prime. Many customers gloat about " we'll I have a prime account" so then fucking use it. You are paying extra for that free shipping. No I am not going to waive the shipping. Anyone else agitated at people who do this?
Guest: We are being instructed in our store to include shipping, even though a few months ago it was murky waters/don't include shipping.
ObiWan: Guest: We are being instructed in our store to include shipping, even though a few months ago it was murky waters/don't include shipping. It begs the question - why bother going to Fry's to get a price match, when all they're going to do is bust your chops. If I can get the same price match at Best Buy without the hassle, I'll go there.
Guest: Frys is surviving, and improving
ObiWan: Guest: Frys is surviving, and improving Surviving - barely Improving - the empty shelves say otherwise
ObiWan: True - Fry's carries "a lot of stuff" (emphasis on"stuff"), but is it anything the average consumer really wants to buy ( or even needs). When it comes time to replace my MBP, I'll go back to the Apple Store, 'cuz I get a discount through where I work (and via KelbyOne). If I need something photo related, I'll go to the local camera store or order it from B&H (free shipping).
Fry's is the "only if I'm totally desperate and need to fix something now" scenario.
frysemployee: r3j3ct, how can you say that they are still making money? You wouldn't know if Fry's is raking in it or barely scraping by. As a private company you would have no idea the state they are in. Why make shit up?
frysemployee: As I suspected you don't have any hard numbers to backup what you are talking about.
Guest: Actually, you Jedi wanna-be, seeing as how I've attended the last three years of financial meetings I do know what I am talking about. Can I post such sensitive information on a public forum? Of course not, because of a term called 'confidential information'. A term that you, of all posters on this site, should not only understand, but honor and respect, given the industry that you claim to work in. As far as the product being purchased and your claim of empty shelves I again cannot post such specific numbers but the 'turns' of our product have improved year over year.

Chris_Tomkinson: 1. Buy merchandise on credit. 2. Don't pay the vendor. 3. ??????? PROFIT
Anakin: Chris_Tomkinson: 1. Buy merchandise on credit. 2. Don't pay the vendor. 3. ??????? PROFIT 3. "Promote" your merchandisers into full-commissioned salesmen so you can have them do merchandising work for free. Because you know, it's already bad enough paying your employees minimum wage as it is.
Guest: News: The customers don't give a fuck about whether you give a fuck about their Amazon Prime membership or not. Oh wait, there aren't any customers anymore. They got fed up with your bullshit attitude and left.
r3j3ct: Guest: News: The customers don't give a fuck about whether you give a fuck about their Amazon Prime membership or not. Oh wait, there aren't any customers anymore. They got fed up with your bullshit attitude and left. Yes, the ones who complain and say that they will never come back again, and show up 2 days later buying something.
Guest: Price matching at Frys will usually knock down the commission to almost zero, depending on the item. This is really unfair to the salesperson that is paid on commission only. Their aggressive price match policy makes Frys seem desperate and seems to say to the customer that the prices are a problem to start with, as well as attracting shopping bottom feeders.
Guest 43738 Amazon Prime has been treating me quite nicely, whether any Frys employee wants to here it or not.
r3j3ct: I'd rather have you shop at Amazon and enjoy your benefits than have you come in to waste my time and kill my commission. Help someone for free, or not help someone at all... I think I'll stick with plan C. Help the ones who have $$ to spend and understand that paying more out of pocket for instant gratification and helping out a good salesman at the same time is a good thing to do
