A 25-year-old York County business has a new home.

Megatronix opened Thursday at 60 Glen Drive in Manchester.

The family-owned store, which got its start in 1989 on South George Street in York City, sells car audio equipment, movies, video games and other collectibles.

After a few years, the business moved to Delco Plaza in West Manchester Township and eventually to 4401 W. Market St. in the township, where the owners rented a commercial barn for 18 years.

Economizing: Tina and John Supenia decided to move the business because of the economy, Tina Supenia said.

"We've been trying to hang on for several years. We finally had to downsize," she said.

The store has cut its hours from seven days a week to 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

"We may lose some customers, but others are super excited we moved. Some say we're closer to visit in Manchester," Tina Supenia said.

She grew up Manchester and now lives in Strinestown with her husband.

"It's nice to have the business in the community where I grew up," Tina Supenia said.

New site: They chose the new location after driving around on Valentine's Day.

This time they decided to buy and be landlords.

The new shop is a small barn behind Rite Aid, where they occupy the main floor and rent the lower level to a music teacher and a window supplier.

"That it's another barn is just a coincidence. But actually it's not coincidental. God has a hand in everything," Tina Supenia said.
