New computer shop keeping Hunstanton plugged in
Filling a rather large gap in the local market is the arrival of Unique Computers Norfolk Ltd onto Hunstanton’s high street. A family-run business with Gary Kite and his son Craig in partnership, they offer an aptly unique, quality service.
Starting as a small shop in Fakenham, Gary eventually became a mobile business in 2008, visiting customers in their homes and businesses selling and repairing laptops and desktop computers. It was around this time that Craig began working for his father full time. This year they have now set up a permanent shop.
With over 25 years of experience under their belt they offer a range of services including repairs, data recovery, virus removal, machine maintenance and software installation. They also offer custom-built computers, catered to each individual taste.
You can purchase various accessories such as printers, USB sticks, ink cartridges and cables. With a client base of both local businesses and regulars they offer a distinct personal touch and can tailor a service suited to customers’ unique needs, and they are always on hand for free advice; their ethos of “support, service, fairness and quick turnaround” being constantly in mind.
Having only been open for just over a month they have already achieved great levels of success thanks to their special and sought-after services. With a nod to the notorious difficulty in starting a new business in the town, Craig is thankful for the support that they have received so far, admitting that they “wouldn’t be able to do it without our existing customers.”
Now with their physical presence in town as opposed to working solely from a van, they have seen a great deal of interest due to their accessibility. On the topic of expansion and their future within Hunstanton’s high street being a driving force toward its modernisation, Gary says: “people haven’t had anything like this around here before… It will slowly build up. It’s not something that will happen overnight.”
