Located at 2258 Pacific Ave. in Long Beach, California, Computer Station, a Commodore store and authorized repair station has served the needs of Commodorians since the 1980's. Computer Station has specialized in Commodore hardware and software, and Amiga, Apple II, and PC-DOS software. Now after more than 30 years, owner Tony Chai is retiring. The storefront will be closing its doors soon.

Tony is selling off the entire business to serious buyers who will come down and take everything away. See

and

for photos and more details.

Tony has listed the Commodore and Amiga service manuals he wishes to sell. You can see the list of manuals at

Disregard the list prices that are at the link. Tony is *deeply* discounting the manuals.

Tony has also listed the Commodore and Amiga chips he has on close-out. To see the list, go to

Should this article go in The Marketplace?

Robert - I think it is fine here.

I wish I could just browse even ... that store looks amazing. How many other businesses are there like there in the US? I'm betting not too many.

As far as I know, that leaves just one devoted to Commodore -- Computer Bargain Store in Salt Lake City, Utah. http://www.oldsoftware.com
