Around the first of the month I publish the number of the month, a random bit of local trivia.
The number of cash registers at Fry’s Electronics in Milton. Compare that to only 28 at the Walmart supercenter next door.
Like any nerdy cubicle dweller, I enjoy strolling through Fry’s over a lunch break. But there is a lot about this retailer and their operations that leaves me scratching my head. Their staggering array of cash registers makes no sense. I doubt they use them all, even on Black Friday. Their cage security structure, large (yet still unhelpful) workforce and odd product pricing also puzzle me.
