SHILOH — The O’Fallon-Shiloh Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce a ribbon cutting ceremony for Experimac of 3220 Greenmount Crossing Drive, Shiloh. The ceremony took place at noon on February 17, 2016.
“We are excited to have Experimac in Shiloh and as a member of our Chamber,” said Chamber Executive Director Debbie Arell-Martinez.
Scott Markovich opened the rapidly expanding concept Experimac in November. 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 almost 20 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 that 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.
“Growing up as a military child I had to move around a lot, so I know the importance of stability and permanence,” said Markovich. “With Experimac, my wife and I have found an opportunity to build a real foundation for success in the area. With my years in retail and restaurant management, I always had some sort of roadblock in my way of delivering world class service and support customers deserved. But with Experimac I’ll be able to bring a great product and great service to this area with nothing but the best customer experience.”
