We sell wireless phones, services, we do cell phone repairs, and bill payments for Boost Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Cricket, Nextel, and Virgin Mobile.
Who is the target audience for your Company?
We sell the items that everybody has to have. From youngest to oldest, most
people now days have a cell phone.
What kind of community projects does your company participate in?
We are very involved with the Animal Shelter. We sponsor two events per year
to raise money for them, Golf tournament and Strut your mutt at the park.
I would like to thank all the hard working people of the Madera Animal Shelter.
What changes have you made in your business to stay up to date with current trends?
We opened a Repair Center last year and it has been doing very well. Nobody was fixing phones in the valley, and with money being tighter now a day’s is what prompted us to start doing cell phone repairs. We also buy phones working or not working conditions. If anybody has old phones they no longer want please feel free to drop them off to be recycled.
What hobbies do you enjoy when you are not working?
I love to play poker. Some people call it gambling, but there are a lot of skills
involved in it.
What value do you receive from your Farm Bureau membership?
I like to use a lot of the discounts they provide me, and the money I save from my Insurance discounts alone more then pays for my membership. Their website and newspaper keeps me up to date with what’s going on in the farming community and around us.
