Many of the televisions Jim Blevins has been working on sit in his shop. Twelve screens play CNN, an MP3 player plays Christmas music and a movie plays in the corner, all while he works.

— Jim Blevins opened Blevins Electronic Repair formally in 1996, but started in 1994 in a remote back room that was originally his grandfather's office.

Blevins specializes in consumer electronics, something he's "always found interesting."

He can be found from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday working on all kinds of electronics at his shop at 109 W. Victory Way.

At the moment Blevins does only in-shop repairs, but is looking to expand to offer in-home service as well.
