Amlin TV in Norridge has kept pace as television sets evolved from tubes to more complicated circuit boards, selling new sets and repairing the rest.
Three brothers now run the store, 8532 W. Lawrence Ave., that their dad, Pete Amodeo, opened in 1968.
They continue the personalized service that is not often found at the big-box stores.
“When you call here, you talk to one of the brothers,” said Ray Amodeo, of Roselle, who has repaired TVs at the store since the 1970s. “If you buy something from us and hit the wrong button, you can call us and we’ll help you.”
Brothers Ronnie Amodeo, of Chicago, and John Amodeo, of Schiller Park, also work at the store. Their late father worked at the store until he was in his 80s.
