Night Time Computers has done an upgrade! They have revamped their business, including a new name, new location, new hours, and more services. While a busy time, I spoke to owner Fred Long about all the exciting changes taking place.
“I wanted to explode the business into what I had always envisioned it to be”, says Fred who has owned the business since 2010. With a degree in Computer Science, and having worked in the computer world for over 15 years, he said there were several things he had wanted to change. First the name, “The name confused people. Many customers thought we were only opened at night.” Second, parking was very frustrating. The space itself was small and had less availability for marketing. As of July 2, Night Time computers flipped the switch and has been operating as Prodigy One Computers.
They have expanded into a larger facility allowing them more space. This has also given them the ability to offer retail. They now sell a full line of both new and used PC’s and laptops, accessories, parts, and software.
While many things have changed their commitment to excellent customer satisfaction has not. They still offer top notch services including computer repairs, virus removal, hardware and software upgrades and installation, data and pictures backup and recovery, and even PC cleanup, which removes dust and dirt from your computer. They can work on any brand, and offer a free consultation to discuss your computer problems and talk about the steps necessary to resolve it. For anyone not able to come to the store, such as businesses or residents with several computers, or problems involving a network, Prodigy One will come to you. They give on-site service visits for issues relating to connection to the internet or server problems.
“This community has made this business what it is today,” says Fred. Over the years he has received feedback from customers and the community and he says he has heard them and is excited to be able to offer even more in computer service to the Kent Island area.
The new Prodigy One store is located in the Rainbow Plaza at 1549 Postal Road in Chester. They have new hours, M-F 9am-7pm and Saturday 10am-3pm. You can reach them at 1-800-278-4616.
