Rim Sight & Sound has reason to celebrate the holiday season. Owner Terry Oakley estimates the business has experience a 40 percent increase in sales this year -- substantially ahead of the 18 percent anticipated.
That growth is proof of the label "The Rim Country's Expert in Entertainment."
Rim Sight & Sound has been in business at 214 W. Main St., Payson for nearly 2-1/2 years. It specializes in home and car audio and video.
The owners and staff have established a reputation among the area's contractors and they are now doing pre-wiring for many of the custom homes being built in the Rim Country. They also work closely with individual homeowners to determine the best system for their needs and the most effective installation for the way they want to enjoy their video and audio experience. The staff of Rim Sight & Sound uses the same quality care in providing systems for vehicles and boats.
Rim Sight & Sound was chosen to provide and install 144 televisions and two drop-down projection units in the new Mazatzal Hotel & Casino, owned and operated by the Tonto Apache Tribe. The reputation of the company has led to large jobs outside of the Rim Country, too, including a fitness center in Cottonwood, a bar in Ahwatukee and a number of doctors' offices in Scottsdale.
"We started with Dan (Groeneveld, manager and vice president) and me and one other guy," said Oakley.
"Now it's us and four other employees," he said.
The shop carries a variety of different brands in televisions, with LG being its lead seller. Other brands include Hitachi, Pioneer, Toshiba and Sharp. The audio lines include Excelon by Kenwood and Alpine.
"We had to prove ourselves before Alpine would even talk to us," Oakley said.
Customer service is a high priority for Oakley, Groeneveld and all the staff at Rim Sight & Sound.
"We will help each customer with information about any equipment they are interested in and educate them about HD, LCD and plasma televisions," Oakley said.
"Customers will not find our level of service in any of the big chains," he added.
Now is the time to purchase that new system for your home and arrange for its installation.
