Lakes Technology Group will open its new headquarters and retail center in downtown Battle Lake in October. It will serve west central Minnesota and eastern North Dakota, offering computer and software products and accessories, networking, home theater, home audio and repair service.
Owners Jim and Jan Eitzen live on nearby Clitherall Lake. They worked closely with the Lakes Area Development Association (LADA: http://www.lakesareadevelopment.org/) while making plans for their new company.
" This is the kind of green industry we need," said LADA President Shawn Frank. "Lakes Technology Group is a year-round business, creates jobs here and brings revenue into the community from outside the area."
