Abt Mourns the Passing of a Culinary Great

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Abt would like to take a moment to recognize the passing of not only a famous Chicago native, but a culinary artist.  Charlie Trotter was exceptional when it came to developing unique foods and his restaurant, which was a Chicago staple, was the place to be for those who love food.

Abt Electronics was proud to team up with Mr. Trotter and the manufacturer Turbo Chef as it was featured in his restaurant “Charlie Trotter’s” as well as his own home for over 8 years.  It was a partnership, we won’t soon forget.

Don’t Wait Until it’s too Cold to Get Ready for the Winter!

Monday, October 21st, 2013

abt furnace

Summer has already come and gone, and as we watch the leaves change color in Fall, cold weather is creeping up.  If you own a home and rely on a furnace to keep you and your family warm, you might want to check out if it’s in working condition before the real cold hits.  At Abt Electronics, we offer service and sales for home furnaces.  Many people don’t know they need to repair their unit before it’s too late.

Recently, CBS 2 Chicago news did an expose on the problems consumers run into when they don’t check on their furnace before the cold arrives.  Our Abt installers mentioned, that since the cold weather came in so quickly customers are finding problems they didn’t even know they had.   Check out the full article at CBS 2 Chicago’s article.

If you are looking to get a new furnace in your home, visit our HVAC center online and let Abt keep you and your home warm this winter!

Behind the Abt Curtain!

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

By reading this I’m confident that you know the store Abt.  You may also know that we’re one of the largest independent single-store appliance and electronics retailers in the country. Our history on our site also breaks down how we were founded and who we’ve become.  Here are 15 things we don’t talk about:

1) Bob Taylor and the Amazing Woodshop

abt woodshop

Abt is a store that’s always changing.  We’re always building.  One thing about Abt is that we try and keep everything under one roof.  We staff people that can sell, support, service & deliver everything we offer.  Behind the curtain, we act the same way.  We have our own maintenance shop (we call “the woodshop).  This staff is made up of a crew skilled to fix or build just about anything in our store or on our grounds.  To manage this team of skilled craftsmen, Bob Taylor sits at the helm.  The woodshop he runs is second to none.  There’s even a dedicated part of our warehouse that’s stocked like an aisle of building supplies store.  There’s really nothing this department can’t do.  They can take on just about any project.  The strength of this department is almost as fascinating as the strength of Bob Taylor’s Arms.  He has a glorious history of not only dominating any opponent in an arm wrestling competition, but most of these battles somehow have ended with some surface of glass shattering.

Green Heads Invade Chicago

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Abt Green Head 01

If you’ve been on Michigan Avenue in Chicago the last day or so, you may have seen them.  6-foot sculpted heads, uniquely designed with greenery coming out of the top of their heads.  Plant Green Ideas along with the Chicago Cultural Mile have installed fifteen sculptured heads on the Chicago Cultural Mile.  The are the creation of Plant Green Ideas, a Chicago non-for-profit organization.  The designed come from sponsors of the heads.  one of which is yours truly, Abt Electronics.

Abt Green Head 02

As you can see, our head’s design is sporting some cool shades with our logo as well as some headphones to rock out to some tunes.  The purpose of the Plant Green Heads is to create awareness for developing a greener environment.  Each head has real plant life growing atop it, acting as the heads’ finely cropped hairdo.  If you are from the Chicagoland area, stop by the Chicago Cultural Mile and check them all out.  If you can, go ahead and snap a photo of you with the Abt Plant Green Head and send it to us via Abt’s Facebook Page or Abt’s Twitter Page.
