Small Dog Electronics is a father and son-owned Apple store with a penchant for dogs. We're not sure what all the fuss over dogs is about, but we like what they're selling. Not only can you find all of the latest Apple gear and accessories, but they offer quite a selection of used computers and parts. Computers are not all they carry, we were impressed by their range of software and peripherals, including cameras and televisions. A cool added feature of the site is their weekly Garage Sale featuring a variety of items (which they announce via e-mail if you want to get a heads up.) This week's offerings range from ethernet adapters for $1 to a local Vermont hiking package with the proceeds going to charity.
Small Dog Electronics is a computer store that cares about the community it's serving. Not only does it host quite a vibrant online community on its message boards, but supports the community of its local patrons in Vermont as well. Championing itself as a socially responsible business, it is proud of its charitable contributions and offers an e-cycling service at its retail locations. We like feeling that our purchases are going to a company that is not only offering us quality and service, but the purveyor of our good deal is giving a little bit back to the community.
