\'Computer Stores Arriving In Volume\'
Computer dealers are crowding shopping districts, and some analysts think the market is becoming saturated.
In Connecticut alone, the two major shopping districts, Buckland and
the Berlin Turnpike, for instance, shoppers can compare equipment and
costs at Nobody Beats the Wiz, Lechmere, Circut City, Staples, and Office
Max - all within minutes in one another.
Yet, computer retailers insist that there has been a need for more stores
- specifically their own - citing a nearly constant updating of equipment
and a growing emphasis on service. They also believe revenue potential
remains because computers are constanly changing and more people are
becoming curious about the Internet.
Still, many worry the market potential might be waning. Analysts believe
the market is very close to being saturated, if not already there. there
are only so many computers a person will buy, and only so many stores will
a customer visit.
