My First Trip to Fry's


I am coming kind of late to the dance on this one.  I needed to get some equipment for a new MCE box I am building, so I headed to Fry's this afternoon.  While it was exactly what I expected; a store 4x the size of any of their competitors.  I was glad to see a very helpful group of employees (not the case with CompUSA!). 

Sometimes its the smallest things that impress me though.  The size of their receipt is perfect.  When I leave BestBuy/CompUSA/Circuit City, I am amazed at the sheer size of the receipts.  I think we could reduce the cost of paper in this country by 2c/ream if we just got those three stores to make reasonable sized receipts.  I just don't get it.
