Our Fresno Story
The year was 2007.
Nerds On Call had already opened two stores that year, but we weren’t finished.
We had our sights set on offering computer repair to the good people of Fresno, but we didn’t know where to set up shop. We scoured Fresno for the perfect place to build our Nerd base of operations.
Eventually, we settled on Shaw Avenue – one of the busiest streets in the area. It would offer us the perfect place to be able to serve the people of Fresno in a place where they already were.
Of course, we offered in-home and in-business calls too (it’s in our name after all), but in the event that someone needed to bring their computer in, we’d always be available in a convenient location.
UPDATE 5/16/2013: Nerds On Call Computer Repair Fresno has a new address at 1450 Clovis Ave, #205 Clovis, CA 93612. Come and stop by!
With our central location, we can offer service to the areas surrounding Fresno, like Clovis and others.
One of our early advertising attempts in Fresno was to hire sign wavers to promote our services. You may have seen them briefly on Shaw Street, dancing, twirling and yes even skating.
As an interesting aside, one of the first customers that Nerds serviced was actually the head coach of the Fresno State Bull Dogs – Ryan Eldridge personally went out to his home and worked on his computer. Only the best for the best!
To date, the Nerds On Call Fresno store services the second largest city out of all of our Nerds on Call locations. Only Portland has a larger population.
Even as far back as 2011, Andrea Eldridge, co-founder of Nerds On Call appeared on TV on the show Central Valley Today with tips about busy Fresno families can use to stay organized and health. If you’re interested in a retro flashback (holy Blackberry, Batman!), check it out.
Even though they’re busy parents, Ryan and Andrea still enjoy visiting Fresno when the opportunity allows.
When they aren’t running around fixing computers, they enjoy taking the kids to Chaffee Zoo or checking out the happenings at Tower Theater.
We’ve had a lot of fun in the past 10+ years providing the computer repair Fresno needs, and we hope to be able to keep doing so for a long time to come. Thank you, Fresno, for making these years wonderful! We’ll be here for you when you need us.
