Brown's TV Closing After 53 Years

A longtime Northborough family business closes its doors.

Many still aren't over the closing of O'Driscoll's or O'Brien's 5 & 10. Now Northborough will mourn the loss of another family destination; Dave Brown, owner of Brown's TV and Appliance, announced that the store will be going out of business "around Feb. 1."

Brown's TV has been in Northborough for 53 years.

Brown's dad and brother started the business in 1960, originally a storefront above Sawyer's Bowladrome on Blake Street. Brown took over as owner in the mid '80s. He's been located at 243 West Main St. for "at least 25 years."

Starting as a TV store, Brown's evolved into a video rental shop for a good 20 years, and when they knew the rental business was "on the way out," Brown's phased in appliances in 2000.

"Everything in the store will be sold at or below cost," said Brown.

Good. They honestly screwed me 10-12 years ago and I never went back. The day it happened I went home and was telling it to TWO of my neighbors and they BOTH had been fleeced as well. And mine was not a mistake or misunderstanding, it was blatant.

How sad, I bought my microwave and refridgerator at Browns. I got a better price than elsewhere and of course, much better personal service. Our family is sorry to see you go!

Brown's TV is not closed and has been under new ownership for over a year. We will match or beat any store pricing, and repair and install everything we sell. Bob Weir if you feel you got screwed then I apologize on the previous owners behalf and would gladly make it up to you on your next appliance or electronics purchase.
