King IT – Fix your things with the Best in Business.
20 November 2018
Sunshine Coast’s most popular IT solutions and phone, PC, Mac repair specialist King IT will be launching its fifth store in the new Stockland Birtinya shopping centre. Stockland Birtinya will be centrally located on the Sunshine Coast. Upon completion, the retail district will feature over 40 new retailers. The centre will adjoin the Sunshine Coast Health and Hospital precinct.
King IT has made a name for efficient customer focused approach on fixing things. “Technology can be a frightening thing for a lot of people”, says Patrick King, Founder and Director at King IT. When you are frightened you generally don’t make the right decisions. Load of that customers are very passionate about getting connected with solutions that will work really well for them but they are not so passionate about how it’s done. I saw a gap in the market for a great store that is an inviting place to be, a place you can trust.
Stockland Birtinya centre manager Shane Monro said “The quality and diversity of our retailers is exceptional, which provides this centre with a real point of difference – we are thrilled to have a passionate and motivated retailer like King IT in our centre to bring more value around Birtinya for the Health and Hospital precinct.” One of King IT’s customer’s Grant Cunning said “I dropped into King IT to get my phone fixed thinking it was like any other place, but then I found out they can help me with a whole range of things. They now with all my business IT and I have now save tens of thousands per year. The best part is I know my IT technician who looks after my business and where he is.” Read More…
