Dickinson's Pacific Sound and Video is in its brand new building on Fourteenth Street West in the Pacific Plaza located directly east of Applebee's.
Jesse Splichal, who has been store manager of Dickinson's Pacific Sound and Video since the business opened here on Sept. 15, 2003, said the biggest reasons for the move were the need for more parking space and a better location. He thinks the former location on First Avenue East was difficult for customers to find.
Although the square footage of the old and new locations is the same, the new space has much more to offer. It features two theater rooms, while the old location had only one.
Splichal said the new location also has complete home automation and more TVs on display. It is also set up like a home and has a living room, office, bedroom and kitchen.
"It definitely gives the customer a better idea of what we can do in their home," Splichal said.
The different rooms display samples of a variety of equipment that Pacific Sound and Video can install in customers' homes.
"We can do controls for heating and air, lighting and security. We can do motorization of window coverings. We do pretty much everything audio/video for your home and car," Splichal said.
He added Pacific Sound and Video is the only place in Dickinson that does home and car installations. Employees also install remote car starters.
Splichal said customers can choose to have their equipment shipped to their home or they can pick up their products.
The business was closed from Nov. 19-22 while the move took place and reopened in the new building on Nov. 23 just in time for holiday shopping.
The move also brought new hours of operation, as the store is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and on Sunday from 12-5 p.m. Two new employees also were recently hired to accommodate the extended hours, which Splichal said expands the staff to seven.
Jamie Stephens of Bismarck owns Pacific Sound and Video and Pacific Plaza in Dickinson. Stephens runs all three locations in Dickinson, Bismarck and Minot. Pacific Plaza is also the home for three other businesses. Currently, Rock 30 Games, Verizon Wireless, and Edward Jones lease space in the plaza.
