What Every Wired Customer Needs Right Now

By Corinne White

What type of customer comes to Abt Electronics?

We're different from most retailers because we attract a wide audience. For example, we sell stoves for $199 to $38,000, and LCD TVs can run from $100 to $20,000. But we pride ourselves in treating every customer the same way and providing a great experience.

What are some hot-ticket items this holiday season?

Anything new and exciting coming out?
