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.

Abt’s Cameo in BMO Harris Bank Commercial

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

If you have been watching TV the last week or so, you may have seen a commercial where TV store showcased may have looked somewhat familiar.  If you are thinking of the new BMO Harris Bank commercial, you will recognize Abt Electronics as the “TV Store” for the young man’s purchase.  It happens quickly, but keep your eyes peeled.

The production company came by a little while back and they spend a few good hours here to get it just right.  The commercial looks great and we were happy to show off our TV section, which is now a TV Star!

Black Friday at Abt Electronics!

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

It has arrived!  Black Friday!  While many of you are still sleeping from your Turkey Food Comas, many others are out there scrounging around for the best deals in retail.  The Friday after Thanksgiving is  known as the ultimate shopping day where shoppers typically sacrifice sleep for door buster deals at a variety of stores, only to discover that retailers only have about 2 or 3 of those special items!

At Abt, we don’t like sales gimmicks or door buster deals.  So, to make everyone happy, the super shoppers and the late arrivals alike, we will be offering great Black Friday deals, all day long!  Shop online or in the store (we will have parking) and get your holiday shopping done right!
