Abt Electronics Proudly Expands Their Store Offerings

After 76 Years Abt Continues to Grow and Give Consumers What They Want

Glenview, Ill., June 19, 2012 – Since going into business in 1936, Abt Electronics in Glenview, Il, knows the best way to be successful is to continually listen to their customers’ needs. That is why Abt, one of the nation’s largest independent retailers and leading nationwide presence through its e-commerce site Abt.com, is thrilled to announce how they will be expanding in more ways than one.

Abt Electronics is adding an entirely new second floor by taking their store’s already impressive 100,000 square-foot showroom upwards. This new loft area being built within their 20,000 square-foot Venetian-style Atrium, will be complete with a new glass escalator and elevator to take customers to the new upper-level of the store. The space will soon be the home to one of Abt’s latest offerings – their bedding department.

Abt will stock popular brands such as TEMPUR-PEDIC, Sterns & Foster, Simmons, and will be the only Chicago-area store to offer the brand Carpe Diem. “This is a brand new segment of Abt’s store,” says Abt’s bedding department manager Geoff Imhof. “The new Atrium Loft area has been designed specifically for this department, to highlight our selection of mattresses and other department offerings.” In addition to mattresses, the 5,000 square-foot department will also carry select furniture, pillows, linens, and mattress protection products. Customers can expect this bedding department to open in August.

Another new offering launching this month at Abt is their home security service available throughout Illinois and Wisconsin. A team of licensed and certified security installers will work with customers to find a system that fits their individual needs within a range of budgets. Abt security services include installing door and window sensors, motion detectors, glass break detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, smoke detectors, shock sensors, and burglar and fire panels. Abt is working with trusted brands such as, GE Security, Honeywell, Elk, and Ademco. For more information regarding Abt’s Home Security, please go to http://www.abt.com/Abt_home_security.

“This is a thrilling time for us here at Abt. It has always been our priority to listen to our customers and offer them unbeatable service,” says Jon Abt. “With the introduction of home security and the new bedding department, we are expanding our offerings to meet their growing needs. The benefit of being an independent retailer is we have the ability to cater to our customers’ requests.”

These expanded offerings are further proof of why Abt Electronics consistently grows at least ten percent a year since it was founded. While continuing to grow their business, they successfully maintain their unmatched customer service. With a highly-trained staff both in-store and through support on their toll-free line, online live chat and email seven days a week, Abt is there to guide shoppers on what products best match their needs.
