Celebrating five years of the only computer store in Comox with both sales and services, My Tech Guys invites all residents to come to the Comox location this Friday.

You can get a free dusting of your PC, as well as a security audit for essential updates. There will be free USB and Ethernet cables for the first 100 people. Donations for YANA will be welcomed.

My Tech Guys started out in 2006 with four employees and a couple hundred customers.

Fast forward to 2011, and we are now an award-winning company with 12 employees, six funky vehicles, two stores and more than 7,500 customers.

“We are thrilled that in five short years, the company has thrived in what has been a difficult economy,” beams Frank Biermann, sales manager at the Comox store. “Our success is a direct result of our employees’ passion to help customers and be the ‘friendliest geeks in town.'”

This past year, My Tech Guys had more than 2,000 new customers while serving more than 5,000 existing customers.

“Rapid growth has really been a challenge to make sure we are continuing to provide the highest level of friendly support for new and existing customers,” says owner Bob Wells. “Our customers have actually helped us a lot by letting us know when there is an opportunity for us to do things better — and we listen and apply those suggestions. It’s awesome to have customers want to help us succeed.”

Over the past year, My Tech Guys’ revenues also increased by 50 per cent, a remarkable fact considering Wells took time off for the birth of his son Quinn and some staff took extended time off.

Some of the new services My Tech Guys started offering this year include iPhone and smart phone repair, live online streaming of events and setting up iPads, iPhones, Blackberries and other electronics.

Due to demand north of the Comox Valley, My Tech Guys is also offering service in Campbell River.

The special day at the Comox store is this Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
