New business offers computer parts, service

A vril Blake has turned her passion for technology into Whitehall’s newest business.

Blake recently opened ABCapture Technical Services inside the Times Emporium on North Williams Street.

The business provides a variety of computer-related services and products including upgrade and repair of Windows-based PCs; virus and malware removal; photo restoration and repairing; 35mm slide, photo scanning and archiving; VHS conversion to DVD.

The shop also carries a variety of cables used for printers (i.e. USB/optical), high-definition TV cables (i.e. HDMI), networking cables (Ethernet), and some laptop, desktop and cell phone accessories such as keyboard & mice. Some shelf space for consignment is also being offered. There are also plans for carrying a line of printer ink and expanding on PC parts and peripherals in the future.

Blake’s goal is to bring services and technical items that she feels are needed and that are not currently available in Whitehall. She said you shouldn’t have to drive a half hour to get an HDMI cable.

Blake has a passion for technology that she has been “practicing” for over 13 years in different areas, which allowed her to become a “Jane of many trades.” She has been doing work for a small client base from her home that has recently picked up and found she needed a proper location. She says her house was being overrun with computer parts and equipment.

Marjorie Mohn, a good friend, offered space in her building at the Times Emporium (Whitehall Times) to help Blake out with her “growing” business.

The shop will be open from 3 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and noon to 8:30 p.m. Saturday through Sunday. The shop can be reached at 499-2435 or if you have an emergency PC repair, Blake can be reached at 499-0664.
