VIP, by its very name, speaks of importance and excellence! And important is how customers are made to feel and excellent is the type of service they receive the minute they step into a VIP store.
With one location at 1465 Rockaway Parkway and another at 215 Conklin Avenue, VIP boasts “the largest selection of Pro and car audio, DJ and lighting equipment under one roof.” Customers can find anything from alarms, amplifiers, basses, tweeters and subwoofers to speakers, microphones, compressors, headphones, turntables, CD players and mixers — in other words, “anything and everything” at VIP.
As Lincoln, an employee at the Conklin store, asserts, “VIP is a one-stop shop for everybody’s needs for electronic and sound equipment.”
VIP stores don’t just stock quantity. They carry a wide array of quality goods and proudly profess to be “certified dealers for Pioneer Pro DJ, Numark, Cerwin Vega, Crest Audio, Chauvet, Technics, Rane, Stanton, Ortofon, Denon, JBL, Crown, Behringer, Vestax and many more!” VIP’s prices are also very affordable but those are not the only reasons the stores have had a loyal following since 1984. Lincoln boasts, “it’s all about service, service and service. If you treat your customers good, they will come back.”
Mike M., who also works at the Conklin store, agrees with Lincoln’s assessment. Pointing to a white and blue decal with BBB (Better Business Bureau) logo and accreditation posted at the store’s entrance, Mike told the Canarsie Courier that he attributes VIP’s long-standing success to three simple things: sales, service and integrity. He placed emphasis on “service and integrity” because as he noted, “Anybody could make a sale, but not everyone could have a repeat customer.”
VIP is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., every day except Saturday and is currently running a Holiday Special, which gives customers 25% to 75% off on select items. Additionally, the store offers financing and other affordable payment plans, including layaway, to ensure that every customer who walks through its doors enjoys a VIP experience.
