Good start for Philip's new business Hometown Computer Services (HCS)

Ron Larson, with support from his wife, Trisha, has started Hometown Computer Services (HCS), which services the greater Philip, Kadoka and Murdo area.

"Basically, I struck up the business because there was a need in town. People were paying more than I thought they should for computer repair and service," said Ron Larson, owner and operator of Hometown Computer Services out of Philip.

Starting in April, Larson has been acquiring more and more work and satisfied customers. "I pretty much know up front what I can and can't handle when it comes to computer problems, and I'll admit that before I start any job," said Larson.
