Experimac Shiloh, IL Featured in St. Louis Post Dispatch

Experimac Shiloh, IL

Scott Markovich of Experimac Shiloh, IL was recently featured in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The article talks about Scott his move from retail and restaurant management, to an Experimac Franchisee.

Scott Markovich is bringing the rapidly expanding concept Experimac to Illinois in early November. His Shiloh location will serve Southern Illinois and the St. Louis area. Providing pre-owned computers and devices; repair and upgrade services for laptops, phones, and tablets; trade-ins of existing devices; and sales of accessories and software for Apple® devices, Experimac make available heavily in demand devices at costs far below their retail value. 

Markovich, a retail and restaurant manager for more than 15 years sought a career change that would grant him the autonomy to be his own boss. Recognizing the demand for Apple® devices yet aware that a large percentage of the population could not afford what they cost when purchased new, Markovich identified a new career direction. But it wasn’t until he came upon the new concept Experimac that he had known he had found an ironclad opportunity to transfer that insight into a career.

“The demand for Apple® devices has never been greater but because of the demand the costs to obtain them at retail are often beyond the reach of most consumers,” said Markovich. “By making them available used, more people can gain access to them than ever before. Experimac makes this possible, backed by a reputation of excellence.”

The newest addition to the United Franchise Group family of brands, a system with over 30 years of franchise experience, Experimac has grown precipitously since the opening of the first franchised location in March. For Markovich, Experimac provides an opportunity to create a legacy for his family.

Coming Soon Experimac Kennesaw

Barry & Tara Barnett were recently featured in East Cobber, in the article they talk about Experimac Kennesaw, the new Experimac location they are opening in Kennesaw, GA.

When Barry Barnett and his wife, Tara, decided to go into business together, they didn’t want to own just any business. They started by looking at different options for buying a franchise and settled on Experimac Kennesaw.

“As we began to work with a franchise broker (Find Your Franchise, Inc.), Experimac was one of the first brands introduced after understanding our backgrounds and interests,” said Barry Barnett. “We were hesitant to decide so quickly, so we continued to look at about a dozen other brands. We kept coming back to Experimac!”

Experimac is a company that buys and sells pre-owned Apple® products and offers repair services. No doubt, the fact that Barnett’s family has owned numerous Apple products helped them make their decision.

“Over the years, our family has owned iMacs, MacBook Air laptops, iPhones, iPads, iPods, etc.,” said Barnett. “So we are absolutely believers in the product.”

They were also drawn to Experimac’s business model.

“Experimac is such a compelling business model focused on growing ownership of Apple® products and providing existing owners an alternative Apple® experience,” said Barnett. “We offer a one-stop home for Apple® quality and value.”

Barnett sees the growing prevalence of technology as something that can only help him in his new business venture.

“It’s amazing how technology is expanding in and out of the classroom,” said Barnett. “The pre-owned options we have in stock will absolutely meet the needs of students as well as adults for personal and professional needs.”

The benefit to owning a franchise is the franchise owners can focus on building relationships in their community while leveraging the franchisor’s core support capabilities. That focus on community is exactly what Barnett plans to bring to the table.

Experimac Coming Soon to Quad Cities

Experimac will soon be opening in the Quad Cities. The following article features Joe King, who will soon be opening an Experimac in Illinois, with his son.

Joe King is not one of the many who quit his soul-sucking corporate job to start his own business. On the contrary, King loved his career.

“I am just retiring from John Deere as an Engineering and Quality manager after 37 years,” says King. “I had an excellent career with Deere and wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

Instead, King’s focus in buying the franchise is on his son.

“My son wants to run a business and I want to help him get started as part of my retirement plan,” says King. “I can’t fish all the time.”

King’s solution was to become a franchisee of, Experimac, the new concept that provides pre-owned computers and devices; repair and upgrade services for laptops, phones and tablets; trade-ins of existing devices; and sales of accessories and software for Apple®devices.

King says his recent move to Apple products helped convince him this was an industry he wanted to work in.

“I am amazed at the simplicity and connectedness of the products and the apps and programs,” says King. “And the translation between Windows products now is seamless.”

King has noticed he’s not the only fan of Apple’s products.

“Many people like Apple products and operating systems in spite of their premium price,” says King. “We think the idea of selling pre-owned, refurbished and upgraded Apple products will be a big hit with students and others who want Apple but don’t want to pay the premium.”

These days, everyone is on the lookout for a good deal, but not everyone wants to sacrifice quality in favor of a bargain. With Experimac, they won’t have to.

Apple Watch and OS2 Overview

Looking for more details on the Apple Watch and OS2? We found an article that explains everything in easy to understand language. This article is a partial repost from imore.com.

Here’s what you can expect from your Apple Watch and watchOS.

watchOS 2 officially has a shipping date: We’ll see it September 16. And there will be some new Apple Watch models and bands this fall, too. Here’s everything we know about the new Apple Watch models and operating system, for your reading (and salivating) pleasure.

Hold up, what’s watchOS?

As OS X is to the Mac, and iOS is to the iPhone and iPad, watch OS is to the Apple Watch. It’s the operating system and underlying software responsible for showcasing your clock face, powering notifications, launching and running apps, and pretty much everything you do on the Watch.

iOS 9. OS X. Why is watchOS lower-case without a space?

Same reason iOS has a lowercase i without a space? Probably to make our brains explode.

So when are we getting it?

September 16! Get your downloading fingers ready.

We usually get new iPhones with a new version of iOS. Are we going to get new Apple Watches with watchOS 2?

Sort of. There’s no new internal Apple Watch hardware, but the Sport models are getting two new hues: rose gold (really more of a bright pink) and gold anodization, in both 38mm and 42mm. The steel Watch model is also getting one new entry: One paired with a a Product RED band.

Apple’s new models will ship starting September 9.

There’s also the fashion angle: Apple has partnered with Hermès to introduce three new Watch and leather band combinations. Price and ship date is currently unknown, but I’d expect something in the low-to-mid four figures.

What about new bands? I want more pretty things!

You’re in luck! Apple has expanded its Sport band lineup to include darker colors like midnight blue and more muted greys and pinks. These, too, will ship September 9.

Pre-Owned Mac® Products: Choosing Pre-Owned, What You Need to Know

Are you already a Mac user? If you’re thinking about it, ask any long-term user of Mac products what they love most about their computer and more than likely they will say – reliability. Mac products are not sold in the volume of other computers but those who buy them understand the long-term value they are getting. Former PC users come to the realization that in the end, Macs don’t need as many updates and last longer, making them a wise investment.

Given the reliability of Macs, you may want to consider purchasing a pre-owned model. For those looking for the best value, Experimac is the place to visit. With the purchase of a pre-owned Mac from Experimac, you can save up to 60% of the cost.

When making any major purchase, we recommend you do your research and when purchasing a pre-owned Mac, in particular, always make sure you are purchasing from a reputable company that offers a warranty, like Experimac. Additionally, when purchasing from Experimac, you can visit any of our locations throughout the country and test out the computer or laptop you’re interested in for yourself.

Here are some things to keep in mind when purchasing a pre-owned Mac product:

What is a pre-owned Mac product?
Pre-owned Mac products can include gently used Mac computers, MacBook® laptops, and iPad® tablets that were traded in for an upgrade or bought out-right for rebuild. At Experimac, unlike other companies, all pre-owned Mac products are inspected, repaired, and tested prior to being sold at a lower cost. At Experimac, we are proud to offer our customers a 90-day repair or replace guarantee on every product you purchase.

Why purchase a pre-owned Mac product?
Mac products are known for their sleek design, reliability, and cutting edge technology – not to mention how user-friendly they are. Unfortunately, brand new Mac computers can be expensive. Pre-owned machines also offer the incredible reliability and ease of use that a brand new Mac computer does but at a much lower price. Buyers can feel confident that their investment is in a high-quality product that runs like new.

How much savings can you expect?
Pricing for each pre-owned product is unique and based on the age and computing capability of that product. While there are no exact savings that we can guarantee for each of our pre-owned Mac products, we CAN guarantee that you will get a great deal and a great product. Typically, our customers save 60% compared to big box retail stores.

What about warranties?
Experimac is proud to offer a 90-day repair or replace warranty on every pre-owned Mac product that we sell. We also offer our customers a full 7 days to familiarize themselves with their new product ensuring that they can feel confident that they have purchased a product that meets or exceeds their expectations.

Owning a high quality device doesn’t have to break the bank. Experimac has a large inventory of pre-owned Mac products such as iMac® computers, MacBook Pro® laptops and more that can fit your needs and budget. If you or your family is in need of a computer, consider stopping by your local Experimac store to try out a pre-owned Mac product. Our trained staff can answer any questions you might have about taking the plunge.
