Ever since his dad bought him two used ones at a pawn shop, Derek Megraw has been tinkering with computers. That was at age 11 or 12, and at age 17 he officially started solving technology-related problems for everyone else.
Now, Megraw, 28, has opened his ACS - Affordable Computer and Web Solutions in Hayfield to go with his first store that opened in Le Roy in 2011.
His businesses, Megraw said, offer a variety of services, from computer repair, to new and refurbished computer sales to web design, all at prices that are competitive or better than in surrounding areas.
"We try to do everything as affordable as possible," he said.
Megraw added that web design prices can start at $100, but usually cost between $300-$400, prices he said that are far below those in Rochester.
The Hayfield store is located at 8 W. Main and can be reached at (507) 307-4440.
Megraw even has an after hours service, where for a fee he'll come to you to fix your computer problems, even in the middle of the night if needed.
He's traveled to Winona before and to Nebraska.
"I don't mind doing that at all," he said.
