Device Pitstop Ending 2018 on a High Note with Two New Stores
Tech Resale Franchise Opens Second Location in Kentucky While Planning for New Location in Fargo, North Dakota
December 07, 2018 // Franchising.com // MINNETONKA, Minn. - Device Pitstop, a national tech resale franchise owned by NTY Franchise Company headquartered in Minnetonka, Minnesota, is celebrating their expansion into two new locations. The brand recently opened a new store in Owensboro, Kentucky, (2928 Heartland Crossing Suite C, Owensboro) while also awarding a new territory in Fargo, North Dakota.
“Technology resale is a booming business right now with so many people looking for affordable solutions with their devices,” Brad Swenson, Vice President of Device Pitstop said, “Device Pitstop stores buy and sell gently-used Apple, Windows and Android-based cell phones, computers and tablets - while repairing these same devices, giving customers options beyond buying brand new.”
Owensboro franchise owner Josh Powell has already established himself as a successful Device Pitstop owner, operating one of the most profitable stores in the country in Lexington, Kentucky. Powell is excited to fill his 1,300 square foot store located in the Heartland Crossing Shopping Center with the hottest brands of cell phone, tablet and laptop computers at up to 70 percent off of the retail price, just in time for the holidays.
“December is always a really busy month because people are looking to upgrade their tech or sell their current devices after receiving new ones during the holidays,” he said, “We’re excited to bring the same great products and services Device Pitstop offers in Lexington to the people of Owensboro.”
Fargo, North Dakota owner Troy DeBerg is thrilled to open the first Device Pitstop in North Dakota, only a few hours from the company’s headquarters in Minnetonka. Clothes Mentor, a national women’s clothing resale store also owned by NTY Franchise Company, already operates in Fargo as one of the most successful stores in the NTY Franchise Company system.
“Based on the success of Clothes Mentor in Fargo, we have every reason to believe the people here are going to love Device Pitstop as well,” DeBerg said. “It’s a terrific concept offering so many different ways for people here to buy, sell or repair their devices at a price they can afford.”
