We noticed some work being done in the retail location in the 70 Washington Street building on Front Street with a Mikey’s Hookup sticker on the door. We’ve confirmed with Mikey on the new store location. They are a multimedia supply store that’s an authorized Apple dealer and authorized Apple repair center. The store will offer a ‘bar’ for people to speak to certified Apple technicians. They also offer business and home repairs for Apple, PC’s, networking, and home theater setup. It’s good to see an independent owner coming to the neighborhood. Mikey’s Hookup has two Williamsburg locations.
If you’re into music/recording, the Dumbo store will also stock DJ supplies, pro audio, video, photo, printing, guitar equipment, and home theater equipment.
We spoke with Mikey, who gave us some other tidbits:
We’ll have a regulation size Olympic ping ping table for passing the time. I’m a huge fan of table tennis and I’m always looking for a good challenge. I’m hoping to be open in the beginning of September. I’m accepting resumes via email for anybody that’s knowledgeable in apple-audio-video to work in the dumbo location.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested. The address for Mikey’s Hookup will be 70 Front Street and the space is 2,165 sqft. They signed a 10 year lease. Welcome to the neighborhood!
