Testimonials: Owning a Mac, it's hard to find trustworthy service where the person not only understands my basic needs but also doesn't sell me more than what is absolutely necessary for my situation. Every time I've been to NextStep, the knowledgeable Mac guys have been exceptionally helpful, they've put me on the right track AND inevitably saved me money. Zach who installs the purchased parts is really patient, too. Good experiences at NextStep = good word-of-mouth promotion from me. Thank you very much! NancyI went down to the ReUSE Store the other day, looking for a firewire cable. I found one for $2.00-the same cable would have cost me $19.99 new. Works great! I ended up finding a toaster and a cell phone that my family needed. What a great store! MateoNextStep Recycling is a founding member of GreenLane, Lane County's sustainable business network.
