3) History: In the 70’s Charles Fry sold his supermarket chain for $14+ million. He gave each of his sons, Dave, John and Randy, approx $1 million dollars. The sons, along with another investor, opened their first Fry’s Electronics in Sunnyvale in 1985. This first store was only 20,000 square feet – today’s stores range in size from 50,000 to over 180,000 square feet. One of Fry’s claims to fame is that they were the first retail outlet in the country to sell off-the-shelf microprocessors.
