Best Indie A/V Shop: Rick's Electronics Boutique

Rick's Electronics Boutique

It’s a fair question to ask how a small retailer like this one stays alive in the face of online shopping and big box stores. With Rick’s, the difference begins and ends with service and expertise—and you can also factor in a diverse product line. Owner Rick Shook and his small team of experts and techs can do everything from installing a wireless, fully hidden sound system throughout your home to fix a broken turntable. Go ‘head, buy gear online and save a few bucks—friend, you are: On. Your. Own. Rick’s will help you get everything up and running, which ain’t often easy for us regular schmoes. Plus, the prices at Rick’s are competitive and … you’re buying local. —Eric Snider
