Computer Mart New Jersey
East Coast Retail- Computer Mart of New Jersey
Owned by Larry Stein. Larry went Stan Veit, owner of Computer Mart Long Island, and asked if he could use same name in NJ. Stan agreed but it was a bad decision as his customers would drive to NJ and buy to save sales tax.
Stan Veit authored The History of the Personal Computer and was a longtime columnist at Computer Shopper
Charles Dunning owned The Computer Mart of Boston.
The East Coast retailers formed the first PC buying group called XYZ Corp to buy together and gain a price advantage.
Larry was also part of the retail association ABCD that is now know as CompTIA.
