Tech-Zone, a walk-up technology support center, is opening a flagship store in uptown Charlotte Wednesday at 10 a.m.

The retailer’s new spot is in a 5,000-square-foot space in the Bank of America building, 100 N. Tryon St., Suite 030.

In addition to selling hardware like smart LED lighting and surveillance cameras, Tech-Zone’s new store offers support services including threat management, security assistance, mobility management, managed print services and an on-site technical support and rapid repair center.

“Unfortunately, technology support has not kept pace with the rapid rate of change facing growing businesses,” said Dan Stone, president of Tech-Zone, in a statement Wednesday. “Tech-Zone is here to change that dynamic and provide proactive solutions to fix technology issues before they occur.”

Tech-Zone is celebrating the grand opening of the uptown store with a daylong display of new technologies, including a holographic greeter, 3D printers and the world’s thinnest laptop, the company said.

The uptown Charlotte store is open 8 a.m.-7 p.m. weekdays and 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday.

Tech-Zone also has locations in the University area, on Tyvola Road and in Kannapolis.
