The long-lived Sysut Computers Computer Service Center – one of the neighborhood’s first tech stores at 2021 Avenue U - has moved. In its place comes Premium Style, a new clothing store set to open soon. Apparently it will focus on European fashion.

As for Sysut, a Yelp reviewer notes that they’ve moved to Nostrand Avenue and Avenue P. Now a repair and parts shop, Sysut holds a special place in my heart. Back in the early 90s it was the only local place to buy Apple IIGS games long after they became irrelevant. Really, it was probably irresponsible to sell Leisure Suit Larry to a kid my age, but I turned out okay.

Welcome to the neighborhood, Premium Style. And good luck in your new location, Sysut.

Computer Software Plus, a long-lived computer parts supply retailer, is shutting the doors at its 1722 Kings Highway location after 27 years in business. They’ll be squashing their retail efforts, moving to the second floor of 1612 Kings Highway and remain open as a repair and computer service shop.

“We’re closing because retail shopping has diminished. Everyone shops online for computer products and retail rents are very high. It’s simple economics, really,” the owner told us.
