PenTeleData opens "The Store"
TERRY AHNER/TIMES NEWS A shot of Computer Patrol, "The Store", several days prior to its grand opening this past Saturday. The store is located at 528 Delaware Avenue in Palmerton.
Top-notch products at bargain basement deals can only lead to favorable results.
If its grand opening was any indication, then success is inevitable for PenTeleData's Computer Patrol, "The Store".
From printers to laptops, products flew off the shelves on Saturday, according to Ed Kiss, store manager.
"It's been very successful, and we've had lots of people," Kiss said. "Everybody seems to be having a good time."
Kiss said the Lexmark Printers price-tagged at $30 were "flying out the door."
Dick and Linda Bottcher of Palmerton attended the event in search of a new computer.
A few minutes later, the couple left with an HP TouchSmart computer they purchased at a reduced price.
After their purchase, the couple acknowledged they received excellent customer service.
Charles and Grace Wilson of Albrightsville said they were made aware of the event courtesy of the flier that appeared last week in the TIMES NEWS.
The couple, which has a computer and printer that is 12 years old, said they came out to obtain information.
"I have a real old computer, and I can't afford a new one," Charles Wilson said. "I also have a printer that I need a new color cartridge for."
Located at 528 Delaware Avenue in Palmerton, the store features all things Internet and networking related, including computers, printers, wireless routers, PC accessories and more.
The day consisted of guest appearances, exclusive giveaways and special pricing. In addition, B104's Mike Kelly, plus the B104 Bee, were on hand, as was Penn's Peak Radio's "The Doc".
Visitors entered to win a free NETBook Laptop, as well as tickets to see Martina McBride at Muskifest, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Jeff Dunham/Keith Urban at the Allentown Fair, and ASIA/The Temptations/Live Wire with Bad Medicine at Penn's Peak.
The business is a response unit of knowledgeable Computer Technicians who design, install, support and service technological solutions for homes and businesses.
