The Computer Den was created in April of 2004 by Rich Harris and his wife Joyce.
Rich grew up in Randolph, NY, and joined the U.S. Navy when he was 18. He spent 12 years in the NAVY and was Honorably discharged in 1988. He was a AT (Aircraft Technician), which he worked on a wide variety of military aircraft. Anything from T2C Buckeye Jet Trainers to P3 Orion Anti-submarine Warfare Aircraft. During this time, Rich attended a variety of schools and courses ranging from electronics, computer systems, to aeronautical engineering through AVIC-7 School. His wide range of skills in the electronic and computer field made him a perfect candidate to start his own business.
The Harrises, Rich, Joyce, and their daughters, Onnalee and Serina, moved from Nevada to be closer to family. Rich having prior business experience in Nevada, decided to open a computer store in the area, hence The Computer Den. Since opening, The Computer Den is close to reaching its 1,000th computer Clean Sweep.
