The history of Fry's
Fry's was founded by the Fry brothers (John, Randy, and David), along with Kathryn Kolder, one of the brothers' former girlfriend. The first store they opened was in Sunnyvale, California, and opened in 1985 and sold all sorts of high-tech supplies, as well as clothing, boks, and snacks and groceries.
Today, the focus is on electronics goods, and they're hugely popular with computer enthusiasts because they often sell lots of variations of a similar type of product. There are 34 Fry's locations, which are located in nine different states (California, Texas, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Illinois, and Indiana).
Did you know that Fry's stores are often themed?
If you walk into your local Fry's Electronics location, it may have a decor theme inside that you weren't expecting! That's because quite a few Fry's locations are decorated with quite involved themes.
Their Burbank store, for instance, is adorned with all kinds of stuff related to science fiction movies from the 1950s through the 1970s. As you walk through the doors, you'll see a flying saucer that hangs above the doorway. Inside, you'll find a Darth Vader statue, giant ants from Them!, and Gort from The Day the Earth Stood Still. And if you stop in the café for a drink or snack, you may be served it at a table that's actually a retro Buick or Chevy.
Their location in Fishers, Indiana is just as elaborate, but the theme is totally different: race tracks. There are lots of photos from Indianapolis in the 1800s and 1900s and references to cars and racing.
