We've all been there. Maybe you found something great for a low price, maybe you found exactly what you were looking for, tucked away on a shelf. Or maybe you just found Micro Center!
Either way, we all have that Micro Center moment that stands out, clear as day.
What was yours?
Might sound lame but my favorite Micro Center moment was after I discovered the store existed and the first time I went to go check it out. I didn't know there was a store like it and I was amazed at all of the cool stuff they had. I was a kid in a toy store again.
I met Mark Cuban while shopping for hard drives around 2008 in the Dallas store. It was definitely a surreal experience as it was completely random! He was very nice about it too!
This is a moment that happens every time I go to my Microcenter! There's a salesman at the Marietta GA location I met 30 years ago when i first started building PCs. He helped my brother and I find a SCSI cable or something. Nerdy little fella with a mustache and heartwarming smile. We called him "the Happy Man" because he was always smiling and so friendly, Always had a little chuckle when you spoke with him. He was always there too, I'd love to go there just to talk to "Happy Man!" As far as I know, "Happy Man: is still there, smiling and chuckling. He knows every part in that store too. I hope Microcenter management is aware of this wonderful gentleman and what he means to the store!
My favorite time in a microcenter was also my first, so i've decided not to go back to my old job an to start building computers for a living ....made this choice after being out of the computer building scene for 10 yrs and come back to a GPU & CPU Shortage. but i'm determined so i decided to go to Micro Center on April 12 to get a 3070. got there at 6Am had a great time with people like me in the line just wanting to get a new GPU for there builds.. An micro center in cambridge was very civil except for one person that tried to show up at 8 an jump in middle of the line....Micro center employees took care of this issue, the rest of the experience was great. just the excitement in the air was worth the wait not to mention the great customer experience. so when i got to the head of the line i was # 67 i was unable to get my 3070 but i was able to get the last 3060ti too replace my R9 270.... an ill have to wait for my MSI 3070 Gamers X an when i get some sponsors or some extra cash being unemployed atm. i wanna get the new MSI MPG CORELIQUID K Series AIO an make a video about it ...an i must say i loved the work an time that micro center puts into helping its customers get what they need an doing it fairly .... i wouldn't go anywhere else now after being to Micro Center & seeing how they treat there customers... TY FOR PUTTING Graphics Cards In the Hands of Gamers.
I think my favorite Micro Center moment was the first time I stopped by back in 2011. I never even heard of the store and they were selling refurbished Xbox 360s for only $150. I saw all the crazy amount of computer parts and pre-built gaming PCs. This was back when they had that old blue/greenish theme for their website (lol) and was also around the time the Battlefield 3 Alpha released and my PC at the time died. I had been waiting for this Alpha forever and played 2 days before my PC crapped out.
I couldn't afford a full build so I ended up buying an Xbox 360 and played the crap out of Battlefield 3 until I rejoined the PC community later in 2013. :)
Micro Center has since been the forefront of any electronic purchases I've made since. \o/
Probably my first visit to the store in Columbus. It was like "wow, I'm really glad I don't live closer cause I'd be here shopping constantly", which is a good thing....but also a bad thing.
