New computer service center open
A new business in town has been created in order to help service the growing number of computer owners in Baldwin City.
Stewart's Computer Services opened on July 8, and is owned and operated by new Baldwin resident Robert Stewart.
"My goal is to provide Baldwin City and the surrounding areas with a 'local one stop and affordable' computer service center," said Stewart.
Prior to moving to Baldwin, Stewart worked in Kansas City for two years as a computer serviceman. He is a 15 year veteran of the U.S. Army and during his service he spent 12 years working with or trouble shooting computers.
Stewart said that his business will offer trouble shooting and repair services, as well as a select product like of computer hardware for sale.
"I can build and service anything from a workstation to a full blown business network, as I am a Network Specialist by trade," he said. "I also design and host business or personal web pages."
The business currently works out of Stewart's home, with hours of Monday through Friday, 6 p.m.-10 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Stewart said that he hoped to expand his business in the future.
"As my business grows, affording me the opportunity to quit my day job I will relocate to a proper setting and establish daytime hours," he said.
He said he would like to offer computer software classes once time and money allow him to start them.
Stewart is also the "official representative" for KNet Inc. in Baldwin City and will soon be for Ottawa. He offers technical support, and sets up the new accounts and e-mail addresses for the internet service.
