I've been to the microcenter in Boston many, many times when I lived up
there. I thought it was great. Since then I've been to a couple Fry's
when visiting the Phoenix area. The Fry's are about 10x the size and
selection of Micro Center.
That said, my first Fry's experience was witnessing a fight breaking out
in the parking lot on the way into the store! The worst thing that ever
happened at Micro Center was that someone recognized the person I was
with from a training video he had done :) That and listening to some
crazy customer service rep tell us how he didn't need to work there
because he could make so much money from his patents :)
It'd be nice to have both I guess.... And returning to the original
topic it's been a long, long time since CompUSA was a decent store by
any definition, but it was still nice to have around.
