“I have been in discussions with Micro Center over the past few months and am very happy they chose the Perring Plaza for their first Baltimore location,” Baltimore County Councilman David Marks said.  “Not only is this a specialty computer store found nowhere else in the region, but it will lead to up to 200 new jobs at this location.”

“The public has wanted something different from the stores you already see throughout Baltimore,” added Maryland Delegate John Cluster.  “Micro Center is unlike any other store in this region and has the wow factor people have been looking for.”
