New computer technology store opens in Williston Park

Aron Newman is finally working for himself.

After spending the better part of the past six years working for others in computer repair, Newman opened Gig-A-Byte Information & Technology Solutions on Thursday at 637 Willis Ave. in  Williston Park

Newman, was accompanied by his parents Carolyn and Harry as well as members of the Chamber of the Willistons at a ribbon-cutting ceremony inside the store.

Newman who previously lived and worked in Suffolk County said the initial purpose of the store will be for computer service and repair.

“My mentor Sam now has me repair his computers now,” Newman said. “He used to tell us about how one day people will need to service their lawn mowers because they’re eating the neighbor’s cats and it’s all because technology is always going to be there and people are going to need them to be fixed.”

Newman said he plans on selling some computer accessories such as bluetooth speakers and keyboards and build websites for clients. But, he said,  he will primarily focus on cleaning Macs and PCs from viruses and malware and provide data protection for users.  

“I’ve always worked for others but now I’m onto bigger and better things,” Newman said.
