The post-economic fallout caused by the pandemic has claimed a West Coast icon.

Fry’s Electronics announced on its website it has shut down operations and closed all 31 of its stores after 36 years, citing “changes in the retail industry and the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The company’s full website has been pulled down, replaced only with a message detailing the chain’s closure.

Fry’s is reaching out to vendors and to customers who have ongoing repairs with the chain about next steps.

“The Company will implement the shut down through an orderly wind down process that it believes will be in the best interests of the Company, its creditors, and other stakeholders,” reads an excerpt of the message on Fry’s website.
