The MicroCenter store in Santa Clara closed on Monday, July 23rd. Reportedly, the property owner was asking for an exhorbitant increase in rent and they were unable to negotiate a renewal of their lease.
Needless to say, we at SVCS are saddened by this event, not only because MicroCenter has hosted our meetings for almost 10 years, but because we have made many friends among the managers and staff of the store and have been warmly received by them. The store was an outstanding resource for all computer users, and especially for those of us geeks immersed in the details of computer systems and applications. Our very special thanks go to Red Calub (Operations Manager), Dan Gallo (General Manager) and Knowledge Experts Michael O'Leary and Davon Wong for all of their help over the years.
