Anthony's TV
About Our Business
Since 1955
We have seen many changes in television, and have changed along the way to still provide
you with options and versatility with TV viewing in you home or business!

In 1955 Anthony started a TV and Radio service as well as TV antennas and Auto Radios.
He worked hard to build his business and had a good Reputation is this area.
Expanding in 1962 with a new Tech Roger and a current inside man Ed , now a crew of 3 Total
for better faster service!
The next few years Roger became the outside man and shop man wile Anthony decided that
with solid state TV and less repairs?? He would get out of the TV business and sell property and
In 1965  Roger Betty and family are the New owners! Ed was still employed as shop man.
Roger Kept the good name Anthony's TV and expanded into More Products and a bigger
showroom. More sales meant more repairs so with his wife and Bob 2nd employee, business was
good. Also adding Dan our 3rd employee was important to the business !
The early 70's  SALES AND SERVICE was the motto with 6 to 12 employees business was at a
peek. Opening the 2nd Store only boosted Sales now to include the new product called the
VCR, we also sold window air conditioners and video games. Solid State was here like Anthony
With changing times and help hard to find we closed our Buffalo Grove store in the mid 70's to
concentrate on the Palatine Store with TV repairs down but VCR repairs up also roof top
antennas and no Cable TV yet,  son Jeff takes over the Installation of antennas and expanded
into Condominium MATV Master Antenna systems and Lobby Cameras

In the 80's there are less SALES of TV's, big Dish is here creating sports bars.
We Expand Movie Rentals into TV sales room with 4000 movies VHS and Beta, VCR repairs
Down(throw away electronics starting)  CABLE TV hits our area, we expand into the Satellite
