Connecting Point Computer Centers, the area’s only locally-owned, independent Apple retailer and services provider, is pleased to announce Apple has awarded us its Premium Service Provider designation. This accolade is given to an elite tier of Apple Authorized Service Providers in recognition of their unparalleled commitment to technical excellence and customer service. According to Apple, “Premium Service Providers consistently deliver exceptional repair support and customer experience that meet Apple’s exacting standard for high-quality repair and prompt service.”
Connecting Point traces its roots back to the pre-personal computer era. Founded in 1975 by Bob Howell and current owner and CEO Rick Mandell, Connecting Point began as a small stereo store. Later, the business expanded to embrace electronic parts, video gear, and even CB radios. But a turning point occurred in 1977, when Connecting Point – then part of the Minneapolis-based franchise TEAM Electronics – became one of the earliest retailers for the new, groundbreaking Apple II personal computer.
Today, Connecting Point is proud to sell, service, and provide unparalleled support for every product in the Apple line – including Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod. As one of just over a hundred Premium Service Providers in all of North America – that’s only 18% of the total number of Apple Service Providers – you can rest assured your Apple service will be performed by one of the oldest, most experienced, and accredited Apple service centers in the world.
