For the Abt blog enthusiasts, I’d like to introduce myself to all the readers who stay current on the latest and greatest news and products here at Abt Electronics. My name is Scott Shefler and I’m the Marketing Summer Intern here at Abt. Getting the chance to work at the storefront on 37-acres of land in Glenview, Illinois has been an amazing opportunity. Being a customer of Abt my whole life I was able to witness their 7,500 gallon fish tank, two-ton rotating granite globe, and more recently their 103-inch Panasonic Plasma. Not to mention the fresh baked cookies on the weekends. Having spent the past 8 weeks at Abt I’ve gained a great insight into the inner workings. With over 1200 employees and growing, Abt is a small town of hard working employees with their main goal of truly keeping customers happy. This summer I’ve worked with a great staff to help build and grow Abt’s website (abt.com) through merchandising and marketing. As for me, coming this fall I will be entering my senior year of college at the University of Illinois – Champaign.
From a seasoned college student I’m happy to announce that all week long I’ll be featuring a new product that is a must have for students entering college in the coming months. Luckily for you I know all the best and most popular gadgets that every student wants. If you’re looking for that perfect going away gift for your son, daughter, niece, or nephew, stay tuned and find out what every student is dying to have. —by Scott Shefler
