Christmas Decorations at Abt Electronics!

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

This year’s Holiday shopping season was shorter than normal, which made it a bit crazier than normal. Add in some epic weather across the country and it’s been a truly wild month. We’re all a bit sad to see it go, because while hectic, December is  the most fun month here at Abt. From Santa’s weekend visits to the holiday decorations that spring up around the store, it’s impossible to not feel festive. Check out some of the cubicle designs done by the Internet Customer Service department:

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

trunkshow

 

Abt’s 2013 Time Boutique Trunk Show is going on this weekend, giving local watch aficionados and casual shoppers alike a chance to see some extraordinary watches. While the Time Boutique always stocks an impressive collection of luxurious watches at all price points, the Trunk Shows are our opportunity to show off some truly unique, often limited-edition timepieces. Top watch brands, like Raymond Weil, Movado, Ball, Rado, Hamilton and more send over exclusive models, and the Trunk Show is a great chance to get your hands—or wrist, rather—on one of these watches.

Finally, a Fix for the Falling Phone?

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

We’ve all been there, either personally or by way of a clumsy acquaintance. We’ve all felt the fate of the fumbled, fallen phone. Whether it falls just inches or goes accidentally flying forty feet in a freak unpocketing-gone-awry, the phone hits the ground with a gut-wrenching crash. You pick it up slowly, fearing the worst. If you’re lucky, it emerges unscathed, maybe receiving only a scratch, maybe just temporarily losing the battery cover. But many of us don’t suffer such good fortune. While Gorilla Glass and its ilk are impressively strong, sometimes the phone lands in just the right way to completely demolish the display of your precious companion.
