Fry's Electronics
As a former 4-year employee of Fry's I would like to say that, as long as you find yourself talking to someone that doesn't make commission (Audio-Video, Computers, and certain parts of components) the employees are typically over qualified for their positions and do go out of their way to help people find what they need. Unfortunately the company has a problem ordering enough of in demand products and instead overstocks terrible items that are high in margin and low low low in demand. Certain sales heavy departments (Computers, for example) will deny customers services if it doesn't add to their commission. Some times employees will simply just miss someone in distress (that happens anywhere) but it is these more commission dependent salesmen that will plainly refuse to help There are products that have missing parts or defects that are marked down and still being sold for parts, though when this is the case they are clearly marked with a large orange sticker.Outside of these things and the employees being forced to dress like used car salesmen it is a fairly average department store.@Crash Override Though your scenario sounds unfortunate I do feel you're probably down playing your reaction or exaggerating what happened. I can't speak for their return policies regarding Components merchandise but had you been calm in responding I seriously doubt you'd of been escorted out. Fry's doesn't have anyone labelled as "Security". If you saw someone in a black shirt that had to escort you out then it was most likely a police office.Also you'd of been the first they actually physically grabbed to escort out of the store (considering they can't even physically stop anyone they know is stealing without evidence of them before during (both on and off camera) AND after the act.)I have NO love for the company as an associate but I figured I'd correct some of these errors in the other review.

Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
