Mike Tran is moving his store to ninth street

Mikes Audio Video moving downtown by the end August

"We've been in this mall for 19 years," said Mike Tran, adding that he is ready to own his own place.

Mike’s Audio Video is renovating a building on Ninth Street and planning to move in August.

“My plan is to move down there by August 1,” said store owner Mike Tran, adding that it might be the end of August depending on how fast they get the building renovations done.

Mike says they put new flooring in the premises and redid the whole front, putting in a new window and new brick frames around the windows and door, as well as slot walls.

Mike says the store has more space, so they will carry more inventory, including Play Station 3 and X-box games and accessories.

He will also hire two more staff, one is already hired and he is looking to hire someone else to do installations.

Asked about the benefits of the new location, Mike said the main thing is that he will own the building and won’t have to pay rent.

“We’ve been in this mall for 19 years,” he said, adding that he is ready to own his own place.

He adds that Ninth Street is busier as well, so he thinks it’s a good investment to move there.

Mike says he is planning a big blowout moving sale before they move, to clear out as much stuff as he can before moving.
