Glenview, IL (PRWEB) August 10, 2006
Student love their gadgets, and many universities require students to come prepared with laptop computers, printers and other devices to help get their work done. A few years ago, colleges began sending out iPods and other MP3 devices for their students to use as portable hard drive devices (and to store their music collection).
The Abt merchandising team sat down with several college students, who also work at Abt during the summer, to come up with a list of products students really want as “back to school” items. Abt has set up a “Back To School” area on their site located at http://www.abtelectronics.com/category/696.html.
“The Abt Back to School Guide is a great tool for students (and their parents) to use when shopping for dorm items. It really has everything a student needs to make their life more enjoyable when they are away from home,” said Andrew Neff, a college student that also works at Abt’s retail location in Glenview, IL.
