Why is Fry's getting all this good publicity?

It's like it's such a tragedy that the stores shut down. Nobody's focusing on the all the workers that were given a two-hour notice of termination or how otherwise cut-throat the job was. All people can think about are the "memories" they had with the store. What a crock of shit. Even the vendors hated it. And now the execs get to land in their golden parachutes. Lame.

The good publicity you're seeing are mostly from people who have never worked a day in their lives at Fry's, or worked there briefly and just got lucky with some cool managers and coworkers etc.

There's only two or three people in a company with 14,000 employees that were lucky enough.

I worked at the Austin Store from 2009 til the end of 2011 and after that 2011 year I'm shocked they lasted another 10 years. Even as a former employee who knew how bad it things were going I'm still a bit sad to see it gone. I still enjoyed going to the Vegas store during vacations out there. I usually always stopped by the Duluth store when I made trips to Atlanta. I still have fond memories of the Austin location before I worked there and it does suck knowing there will probably never be another store quite like what Fry's offered. At its best it was an experience unlike any other for a tech hobbyist. The closes thing we have now is probably MicroCenter, but they tend to be a bit smaller than Fry's and in far fewer locations. They also lack the theming which was such a unique trait for Fry's stores.  
 
Shame that Fry's management was so terrible at the top and seemingly much more concerned with their personal bank accounts than the companies.
