GREAT NEWS FOR THE ELDEST GEEK! WE HAVE A NEW LOCATION!
I am happy to announce that we have signed a lease on a new space, and we will be in the Marcel Center – a strip mall a few blocks down and on the other side from Mt Vernon Antique Center. The address is 8332 Richmond Highway, Suite 205!
We are getting it painted now!
Further news – we are merging with one of the other better computer folks, Daryl of Mt Vernon Computers – and our new venture will be
“Home of the Eldest Geek” 🙂
Same folks, Me, Alex, Danko and we will also have Mohammed as well!
We will be doing the same things – including our gold & silver business – as well as some of our other oddball activities.
WHY A NEW NAME??
Well, we had been talking to some other folks for years about doing a ‘real shop’.
Well – when my shop burned down – seemed like a good time to revisit the discussion!
We will have a NICE BIG SIGN on Richmond Highway (Route 1) to let you all know.
Phone number will be unchanged – 703-436-4756 will be the main shop number.
Here is a map:
So – just a few blocks down on the other side of route 1. The icon that does NOT look like a fire 🙂
We are painting it this week. Should be ready to roll out shortly! Call me with any questions 703-401-3806
MT VERNON FIRE UPDATE FROM THE ELDEST (and temporarily Homeless) GEEK
We have been inside twice now and recovered a few items mainly silver and some valuables. No customer computers yet. Most of those are buried on the second floor (still standing) under hundreds of pounds of collapsed roofing. It will take time and machinery to get at it. Insurance company at this point will not permit anything more than shovels and gloves to be used at the site.
ANY CHANGES AT THE NEW STORE?
YES!!! I have wanted for ever to do CLASSES – and we will now be doing some at the new location!
WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP?
I’ve been very gratified by the outpouring of support from you my customers. I’m hanging in there – and I will NOT let this be the end of my store! Any computer needs – give us a call or book an appointment at www.theeldestgeek.com/services
Need a website? I have plenty of time to work on them – call me 🙂
Pass our name around and let folks know of a worthy little computer store that can use support!
I’ve had some folks suggest a GoFundMe page. What do you all think. Make sense? I value your opinion.
I have had some offer money. I am gratified at the offer but so far I’m not bouncing checks. Yet. (LOL) I guess if anyone whats to ‘prepay’ a computer or support I would not say no 🙂 But I’m not desperate – far from it. I’m oddly hopeful! My wife has been at me for YEARS to downsize! And she was bugging me about cataloging my minerals – she said (with much truth) that if I was hit by a bus – who would know anything about them? Well – she has been relieved on both these scores! LOL <insert sick just had your store burn down humor here>
Thanks again to all of you and your kind responses!
The Eldest Geek is not finished – and will rise as the Phoenix at the new location 8332 Richmond Highway
(Upstairs suite 205) Drop by and say hi! Pardon our Dust!
