Flint car and boat mobile opens
Called Flint Mobile Marine, the new store is located at 132 East Main Rd. in Middletown. The shop is right across the street from the main Flint Audio Video store in the Aquidneck Centre (between Starbucks and Shaw's).
The new store will offer the same Flint "service-oriented" philosophy, according to Dan Anton, manager of Flint Audio. "We offer 100 percent quality. We believe in taking care of our customers," he said.
Anton, who lives in Jamestown - as does Flint owner Gary Gagne, said Flint Mobile Marine is all about customization. "People spend a lot of time in their cars and their boats," he said. "We can customize with the technology features they want."
Andy Paris is the manager of the new Flint Mobile Marine. He said the store offers the latest audio systems, GPS navigation, mobile DVD, car starters, car alarms, and satellite radio. Flint can even make your Bluetooth cell phone work with your car or boat for hands-free operation.
"The car starters will be a big Christmas item," he said. "We will also have other holiday packages available for gift shoppers."
The store carries top names such as JL Audio, Kenwood, Pioneer, Polk, Viper, and Garmin.
"Everything we offer for boats is marine certified, too," Paris said.
Flint Mobile Marine also takes care of the installation and will show you how to the use the new devices. While the new equipment is installed you can watch the store's 40-inch high definition television in the waiting room. Or drop off your vehicle and Flint will give you a ride to work. Flint will also pick up your car.
A Flint technician will go to your boat for larger marine installations.
"All of our work is guaranteed for as long as you own the vehicle," Paris said.
