Ham Radio Outlet coming to Texas


Ham Radio Outlet, the worlds largest Amateur Radio product and accessories
retailer, announced a new retail Super Store in Plano, TX. This new store
will include a multi-thousand foot retail floor plan, which will stock and
have on display a vast selection of amateur radio products and accessories.
Included within the facility will be a large demonstration area, which will
have many of the current amateur radio products connected to antennas for
use and display.

"We believe the Dallas / Fort Worth area has been under served for some
time," said National Sales Manager, Steve Gilmore. "With this new super
store in Plano Texas, we will have a retail and shipping facility to allow
customers in the Dallas / Fort Worth area a place to shop for amateur radio
products and accessories. This allows for our Company to better serve
surrounding areas by being able to ship products often within one (1) day
to Oklahoma, most of Texas, and parts of Kansas, Arkansas and Louisiana."

"We have a plan, we have a manager, and we have a facility. We are ready to
go," said National Operations Manager, Chuck Wyrick. "It's a big job to
open a store, but in this case, it is absolutely necessary and important to
serve Texas. Participating in amateur events, such as Hamfests, within the
Texas and Oklahoma areas will now be far easier."

"It's an exciting time for us at HRO," indicated President, Robert Ferrero.
"We are extremely proud to have the opportunity to move into Texas and
provide a place for Hams to be able to come in and shop. So much is mail
order today, however that does not provide the hands on experience. Our new
store in Plano will be a new retail model, vast in size, with significant
on-hand inventory. If our customer wants an amateur product, I expect to
have it in Plano in 2015."

Ham Radio Outlet expects the opening of its new facility at 701 E. Plano
Parkway, Suite 406, Plano, Texas 75074 in the first quarter of 2015.

HRO, Inc. (dba. Ham Radio Outlet) is a family owned business with twelve
(12 ) stores located throughout the United States as well as the largest
amateur radio E Commerce website, making it the largest Ham Radio
dealership in the world. Ham Radio Outlet is headquartered in Danville,
California and has been serving the amateur community both nationally and
internationally since 1971.
