Distributor Spotlight Series – @Microcenter

Check out this week’s Distributor spotlight on Micro Center!

A little background on our friends at Micro Center:

Micro Center was founded in Columbus, Ohio in 1979 by John Baker and Bill Bayne, two former Radio Shack employees, with a $35,000 investment. The first Micro Center store was established in a 900 square foot storefront located in suburban Columbus, Ohio. The store benefited from its proximity to Ohio State University and the scientific think-tank Battelle Memorial Institute, which provided a large customer base and a source of computer-savvy salespeople. Their goal for the first year was $30 million in sales, and they achieved $29.9 million. Since its founding, Micro Center has grown steadily and profitably. Today Micro Center is the nations’ leading computer and electronics device retailer, operating twenty-five large stores in major markets nationwide. Our high-volume retail stores are designed to satisfy the needs of a wide variety of consumers – from casual to tech-savvy – with well-trained associates who offer technical solutions in an immersive shopping environment. In fact, Forbes magazine ranked Micro Center 195th among America’s largest private companies, with 2,750 staff and annual revenue of US $2.4 billion.

Uniquely focused on computers and related products, Micro Center offers more computers and electronic devices (over 30,000 products) than any other retailer. Micro Center is deeply passionate about providing product expertise and exceptional customer service and has offered in-store pickup of online orders within 18 minutes since 2009.

“Micro Center is the leading U.S. retailer of Maker Products, offering over 2,000 unique products to give Makers and DIY enthusiasts a one-stop shopping venue for their needs,” said Kevin L. Jones, Micro Center Vice President Merchandising, “We’re excited to partner with Adafruit to offer our customers their range of products aimed at Makers.”
