camera drone event

Have an old camera collecting dust in your closet? Bring it into Abt this weekend and trade it in for cash or Abt Gift Cards! The National Camera Exchange, a premier buyer and seller of new and used photo equipment, will be in our store to find out the value of your used equipment. Products from all major brands will be accepted, and both film and digital equipment will also be accepted. While not all equipment will be eligible for a cash reward, we don’t want anyone to leave empty-handed so $10 Abt Gift Cards will be given to those whose equipment does not qualify.

 Saturday, April 16th and Sunday, April 17th

from 11am-6pm at Abt Electronics

1200 N. Milwaukee Avenue | Glenview, IL | 60025

January brings one of the most exciting weeks of the year for tech-heads everywhere, as Las Vegas plays host to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). CES 2016 is the premiere exhibition for the consumer electronics and appliance industries, a chance for both the Who’s Who of technology and small startups to show off their latest wares to retailers, distributors and tech journalists from around the world.

 

We’ll have a team in Vegas on Monday, and all week long they’ll be roaming the showroom floor to find the most interesting upcoming tech items that may someday end up on our shelves. Over the course of the week, we’ll be putting up tons of videos, photos and blog posts to give you the inside scoop on the coolest things at CES 2016. You can find all our videos at the Abt Electronics YouTube Page or right here at Abt’s CES 2016 Coverage page. And we’d love to hear what you want to see! Please comment on any of our YouTube videos with what you’d like us to try and cover, and we’ll do our best to get video of it. Plus, be sure to watch all of our videos so you can spot the Dancing Josh Hologram. Every video you find him in gives you a chance to win a $100 Abt Gift Card.

Earth Day Celebration at Abt.

Monday, April 20th, 2015

Being green is a year-round commitment at Abt. From our on-site recycling center to energy-efficient technology throughout the store, we take pride in doing our part to keep the planet a little cleaner. So, Earth Week is an extra special celebration for us, and we kicked it off on Sunday with a day of fun and educational activities with the help of some friends. All week long we’ll be exploring ways that we can all minimize our environmental impact , but for now here’s a quick look at the weekend’s fun.

The Yellow Tractor Project showed how a simple garden can provide you with healthy, inexpensive foods.

Abt Customer Appreciation Sale Now Underway!

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

2014 is Abt’s 78th year in business. After all that time, we’re still family-owned and operated, and still committed to giving our customers the best service possible. While we often get congratulated on these points, the truth is that we wouldn’t be where we are today without our customers. So, twice a year, we hold our Customer Appreciation Sale as a way to thank everyone who’s supported us over the years. Today marked the start of the sale, with prices reduced on thousands of products throughout the store. You’ll have to act fast, because the sale lasts only through this weekend. Stop by in person, or if you’d prefer to avoid the crowds, shop the entire sale online at the Abt Customer Appreciation Sale. And once again, a resounding “Thank You!” to all of you who’ve helped us get this far.
