December 07, 2003|SHEILA J. CLARK

The Computer House, located at 1531 Hustonville Road, is the newest computer service shop in town. This is actually the second Computer House location.

The first shop is located at 587 Chestnut St. in Harrodsburg, and it opened in spring 2002. The Danville store just opened Nov. 1. Both businesses are owned by Davey Graham of Harrodsburg. Graham has more than 10 years of computer experience.

The Danville store is managed by Chad Banks of Stanford and Graham manages the Harrodsburg store. The Danville staff includes two computer technicians and two inside sales personnel.

The business offers sales, refurbished systems, repairs with free estimates and upgrades for computer software and hardware. They also offer custom builds and cellular phone services from Nextel.


Complete used computer systems are available starting as low as $199. A complete system includes an operating system, a 17-inch monitor, computer, mouse, speakers and keyboard. The latter three peripherals are brand new. Used systems come with a limited 30-day warranty.

The business buys used computer items and they also offer a trade-in value for old equipment they receive towards a computer purchase. In addition, they have new and used parts available for purchase, such as floppy drives, motherboards, cases and modems. Special orders can also be made. They offer new, used and custom-built laptops.

Business hours are 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Wednesdays; and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays. They are closed Sundays. Phone them for more information at (859) 936-1701 or contact the Harrodsburg location at (859) 734-4733.
