Tek Experts opens larger facility.

Tek Experts has expanded its operations and moved to a larger facility in Clintonville at 2761 N. High St. The new digs facilitate Tek Experts’ growing B2B and B2C customer base in buying and reselling used phones, laptops, tablets and other electronic devices. In addition to the added showroom space, the facility will include a repair center and dedicated shipping-and-receiving area. The company has also launched a new website to better accommodate sales and service requests.

The Janes Group has acquired three Save A Lot stores in the Columbus region, all of which will undergo extensive updates, including a complete renovation of the 2054 Lockbourne Road location. Other newly acquired properties include stores at 1230 S. James Road and 6308 E. Livingston Road in Reynoldsburg.

The new footprints feature a revitalized decor, expanded product offerings and meat cut fresh daily in store. The move is part of the discount grocer’s effort to convert corporate-owned stores to locally based operations. Renovations are already in the works at the Lockbourne store, and once the completed, the plan is to double the number of employees at that location.
