Houston - Premium A/V specialty chain Modia Home Theater Store has become an Apple Authorized Reseller.
The move, said CEO Mihir Mody, will allow its customers to fully experience how Apple products can provide a simplified, single-source interface that unifies all their lifestyle technology.
"We see this as a perfect match," Mody said. "Since the introduction of the iPod, Apple products have played an integral role in our design process, and with Apple's continued expansion of lifestyle and communication technologies, it only makes sense their presence in our solutions would grow as well."
While the customer can buy Apple products at other retailers, Modia plans to present and demonstrate the company's "entire line in a very unique way," Mody said. "Modia is in a â€˜hands-on, real-time' business. And this kind of showcase for Apple products simply isn't available anywhere else."
The seven-store chain, with locations here and in Dallas and Austin, Texas, is renowned for pairing premium audio and video components with proprietary media furniture and installation concepts, and creating unique retail environments that help customers understand how A/V, security, climate control and lighting can be seamlessly integrated into their homes and offices.
A member of the Progressive Retailers Organization (PRO Group), Modia was founded in 1986 by the Mody family and also operates sister companies Gel, a low-voltage blueprint provider focusing on commercial and multi-dwelling projects, and Mody & Mody, exclusive furniture showrooms featuring an assortment of luxury brands for lighting, rugs, wardrobes, kitchens, baths and accessories.
