Second Source Computer Center History

picture of a server switch In 1992, the average person was just starting to realize that they could not only enjoy, but also afford a personal computer for work and play. The World Wide Web had just begun to offer a way to connect with ideas and people. All of a sudden there was a whole new way of doing things, and it was available to everyone.

This was the year that John Goodridge, along with his brother, opened a business called "Second Source" - a name that represented the idea that everyone could own a second-hand computer at an affordable price.

John's initial business focus was to make available a variety of new and pre-owned computers for home and business. While John still sells computers and laptops, the repair services side of his business has taken off leading to computer repairs, data recovery, gaming console repairs, DC Jack / power repairs and so much more. We are proud to offer that same great service but in a bigger space at our new location on 600 Westtown Road.

Second Source not only provides equipment which meets our needs but also assist with software issues. They were very helpful in resolving the issue of emails from those using gmail were not be received by Microsoft Outlook.
