There is / There are with no place complement
Can we use 'there is / there are' sentences with no place complements?
There aren't any apples, but there are some oranges.
Somehow the sentence seems weak and weird. I've heard it's possible, but I subconciously add a place complement like 'in the fridge' to the end.

The sentence is fine. No doubt it would be uttered in some sort of context.
