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!

Bose SoundLink II Bring Wireless, Wherever You Go

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

There is a lot to be expected when speaker manufacturers say the words, “Wireless Speakers”.  Typically, that means one or two of the speakers in the package work remotely, but other still need to be connected to a receiver for it all to work.  That’s fine when you are setting up a home theater system, however, when you want TRUE wireless, you may have something different in mind.

 The Bose SoundLink II offers exceptional sound quality in a small, wireless package.  As long as you have a smartphone with Bluetooth (and who doesn’t these days?) you can get your favorite music, wherever you go.  Check out the video below for the full details!

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!

While our doors may be closed today, our website is fully operational.  Start your holiday shopping early with our Abt Thanksgiving Sale.

Alton Brown’s Thanksgiving Good Eats

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Because I love all things Thanksgiving, and because I’m a  huge fan of Alton Brown from Good Eats Fame, I’ve decided to share some great Thanksgiving recipes from the super-chef himself.  Below are several of his best Thanksgiving recipes to try your hand, and impress your friends and family this Thanksgiving!

First and foremost, the star of the evening.  No, I’m not talking about your crazy uncle who is three sheets to the wind by the time he pulls into your driveway, I”m talking about the Turkey!  The main attraction!  Alton has a great Turkey recipe that is going to delight you and all your guests. Forewarning, give yourself time to get this bird ready.  It takes at least 10 hours of prep!

At Thanksgiving, the Turkey typically takes front and center.  Coming in at a close second, at least for me, is a good cranberry sauce.  While I admit I still like the the cranberry sauce from a can, if you want to go gourmet, check out Alton’s Cranberry Sauce Recipe.

If you are looking for the best tools to get the above jobs done, visit Abt’s Kitchen & Dining Category and find what you need!

Is it your turn to carve the turkey this year?  Worried about not making a fool of yourself after watching a professional do it year, after year?  Have not fret!  Alton brown has an easy-to-follow, “how to carve a turkey” video perfect for beginners and pros alike.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
