Looks like the Chicago area Fry’s is still moving forward. (Thanks to MARK NOTARUS for the link.)
From Suburban Chicago News:
Fry’s Electronics wants to broaden its national presence and hopes its first venture east of the Mississippi River will pay big dividends.
After almost two decades of operating exclusively in the western and southwestern United States, the consumer electronics retailer is ready to make its Midwest debut in Downers Grove. The store is near interstates 88 and 355 and was built on the site once occupied by Auto Nation.
