New mobile computer business sets up shop
PC Pros, the only mobile computer repair business in Blaine is now operating. Owner Selena Franklin said the business offers a little bit of everything, from repairs to computer software and hardware upgrading to building custom computers. Since the nearest mobile computer business is in Bellingham, it will save customers time and money to have a local company come to their home or office, Franklin said.

The going rate for computer services at most repair shops is $60 to $80 per hour, however, PC Pros has tried to make their services more affordable by charging $40 per hour, and offers discounts for customers who are 60-years-old or more. To find out more about PC Pros or to make an appointment, call them at 303-9424, or 371-3398, or visit online at
