Chicago’s very own radio personalities Roe Conn and Richard Roeper were on air congratulating us here at Abt Electronics for becoming the Best Place to Work in Chicago.  Along with another Chicago news favorite, Ron Majors, they discussed their experiences of coming to our store for the first time as well as recalling memories of when they first bought from us.

They were even impressed with our “Vest Hall of Fame”, a private section of our store we have dedicated to past employees, both long-time veterans who have retired and those who passed away while working with us.

Thank you fellas from Chicago’s WLS 890 AM for the kind words and recognition!  You can hear their segment below.
