The company’s second Express Store
Friday, February 20, 2015

MELVILLE, N.Y.—ADI in February opened its second Express Store in Charleston, S.C.

“There’s roughly 30 to 40 other markets out there that we think we could actually open an ADI Express Store in,” Rob Aarnes president of ADI North America, told Security Systems News. Aarnes stressed that would come after methodical assessment of the existing locations.

ADI opened its first Express Store in Omaha, Neb., nearly a year ago

Not much differentiates the express store from a full branch in capabilities, Aarnes said. The main difference is the size; express stores are less than half the size by square footage.

This branch was, in part, first discussed back in late 2013. “We decided we were going to open four in the next 12 to 18 months. … We knew we wanted to open two ADI Express, and two standard [branch locations].”

ADI opened branches in Jackson, Miss., and Mobile, Ala., in December 2014.
