Businesses That Aren't Doing Badly In Bad Economy

Posted: Updated:
In this tough economy, most people aren't buying much. But will they really repair things rather than re-buy? News 8 finds out if there are any businesses that aren't doing badly in this bad economy.\r\n\r\nIn a time where people are cutting back and spending less, owning a computer is still a necessity. When it goes down, The Portable Source is there to fix it. Despite the sluggish economy, one Kearny Mesa small business is still getting by.\r\n\r\n"It's still staying real busy. It's not like we have nothing to do here," an employee said.\r\n\r\nIt's not just broken or infected computers coming into the repair shop.\r\n\r\n"Sometimes we do get those older ones 10 years old," an employee said.\r\n\r\nAnd a free computer that's tough for anyone to turn down, regardless of its condition.\r\n\r\n"It kind of does happen from time to time, someone will get a gift as a hand-me-down and they will want to fix it," an employee said.\r\n\r\nTimes are tough for everyone, and this computer shop says it will save its customers cash repairing rather than replacing.\r\n\r\nMany of the store owners we spoke with say even though they might see new customers that are trying to save, most of their steady customers are cutting back completely. \r\n\r\nThe Portable Source was given an A rating by the Better Business Bureau, and according to its website, has not processed any complaints over the last three years.\r\n
