We're still here, just not there...

On April 30th, 2016, Computer Gallery's retail location at 4606 N. Wilson Dr (Shorewood, Wisconsin) closed due to damage caused by repeated toilet backups in the apartments upstairs, as well as uncertainty over roofing issues and our air conditioning.

After evaluating options for a new retail or office location, we realized that our "empty nester" status provided a unique opportunity to work from home. So we converted a spare bedroom into our office, and setup our workbench in the basement.

Many of our clients were already dropping-off and picking-up at our home because, quite frankly, our hours (10-6 Monday thru Friday) weren't very accomodating.

Things haven't really changed much. You call (same telephone number, 414/963-6336) and tell us your issue(s). If we feel we can fix your problem remotely (via our remote-access software), we will offer that. If we feel like we need to "lay hands" on the machine, we will provide instructions for dropping your problem child off at our place. And we still offer free pickup/delivery to people that prefer that option.
