by 7:00 p.m., the company said, although areas in Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut

CE items rather than food. In addition, the 38-year-old independent A/V and IT
specialty dealer ran contests on its Blog, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and blog
sites, awarding J&R gift cards to the first 10 New Yorkers who uploaded a photo

invaluable to our success,” Freidman said.
