About Us

https://www.mac-cafe.com/clientuploads/About Us/A2Wht2.png
In 1980, the forerunner of the MacCafé, Abacus II, first opened it's doors. While the Macintosh did not exist at the time, Abacus II was authorized as an Apple Reseller. By the time of the Macintosh introduction in 1984, Abacus II was the leading reseller of Apple products in N.W. Ohio.

Over the next two decades, Abacus II opened, closed and moved several retail locations and business-to-business sales offices in Ohio finally settling at the Sylvania building that housed all divisions. Over that time period, the company had become authorized to sell and service a wide spectrum of major brands in addition to Apple. The focus had also changed to small to medium businesses as the core customer.

Early in the new century, it became apparent that to best service the Mac community, we would have to create a separate business unit specializing in Apple products. In 2002 the new MacCafé began operation as an Apple Specialist. Our beginnings were humble, with only a one person sales staff and 600 sq. ft of retail storefront. Since then, we have grown in staff, space and most significantly, with the addition of the service department.

In October 2017, we moved to our present location at 7860 Central Avenue. With this move, we are able to focus on a better customer experience for our customers and a more spacious service area.

10/18/2017: How To Avoid Downer Stories in Apple’s “For You” News Suggestions

If the For You section of Apple’s iOS News app overwhelms you with stories that are boring, depressing, or offensive, you can clamp down on it with a new setting in iOS 11. Go to Settings > News and enable Restrict Stories in For You. From then on, most stories in For You will come only from channels you follow. That setting also removes Top Stories, Trending Stories, and Featured Stories, since they rely on publications you may not like. (To follow a publication’s channel, in the News app, tap the publication’s name at the top of a story and then tap its heart icon. Verify your selections in the Following section, accessed by tapping Following at the bottom of the main News screen. Be aware that News may still suggest unwanted topics; you can delete those in Following too.)
