The Troy Chamber of Commerce has just welcomed a new business to the Market Street family. While most of the local shops in downtown Troy were opening as usual on the morning of April 15th, a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony was being held for Winner’s Computers, one of the new kids on the block this spring.
“Every time we bring a new business into downtown Troy it’s like bringing another friend into our living room,” Mayor Beamish said, “And with a name like ‘Winner’s,’ we already know it’s going to succeed.” The mayor’s optimistic observations were reflected in the faces of the people present for the small gathering. The new store front was full of Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors wearing red coats and bright smiles that accompanied a queue of hearty handshakes extended to Bob Winner, the proud owner of the newest Winner’s Computer store.
Winner’s started with a shop in New Bremen, Ohio in the early 1990s servicing computers, installing servers, and building networks for home users and businesses. The business gradually began to expand as satisfied customers built a client base and Winner’s opened other locations in areas like New Knoxville and Celina. Bob Winner, however, had his eye on Troy for a long time.
“I always wanted to live in Troy,” Winner said. “It’s a great place to raise a family and it’s a nice community.” Winner, his wife, Amy, and their three children Ethan, Jillian, and Mady moved to Troy in anticipation of opening a new computer store in the area. He was excited when the location came available at 114 Market Street. After months of renovating, the new store is clean and ready with plenty of space for new work to begin. “This is a great opportunity,” Winner said. “And everyone has been very welcoming. We’re looking forward to our future here.”
Winner was given a Troy medallion and a plaque from the Troy Chamber of Commerce commemorating the new business inauguration. With a promising name and a hopeful beginning, Winner’s Computer is a friendly new neighbor with an open door, a host of servers, and knack for networking.
