A 6ft Geek
In the fall of 2011, Tony Fuqua, owner of A 6ft Geek, approached the Chamber of Commerce with a plan to open their first store front in the vacant space next door to the Chamber. A short time later, an agreement was reached, and renovation work quickly began. By December of that year, A 6ft Geek had opened their doors. With an overwhelmingly positive response from the community for their first retail location, A 6ft Geek quickly outgrew their location next to the Chamber, and they began looking for a larger space. Wanting to stay near the square, in December of 2012, A 6ft Geek purchased 207 E Main St, their current location. A 6ft Geek has continued to grow and expand. In addition to electronics sales, repair, and training, they have most recently added 3D scanning and printing services. Please stop in to our business of the month, “A 6ft Geek”. Tony and his friendly staff are ready to help with any of your computer or other electronics needs.
“We are very grateful to everyone in the community for their support, and we would especially like to thank those who believed in our company when it was first starting out. Without their support, we would never have made it this far. We feel like we have come a long way in just a few years, and we look forward to many more years to come of serving the community. Thank you all so much!”
--Tony Fuqua (The “6ft Geek” of “A 6ft Geek”)
