Dealer Profile: The Power of One
Ray Patel could expand Ray's Electronics to multiple stores in a handful of towns. But he prefers the power of one.
The 12-volt emporium in Addison, Ill., just west of Chicago, consistently lands in many "top 100" 12-volt retailer lists. Patel runs his store just like a corner barbershop and is reluctant to change the formula beyond the confines of the single store he operates.
"I could expand, but I want to enjoy life, and enjoy my family," he said, adding that he takes equal delight in the retailer-customer relationship.
