Although the California expansion of its T-Zone store concept is not occurring as quickly as anticipated, PC retailer ADO ELECTRONIC INDUSTRIAL CO., LTD. has opened a store in San Mateo. Like the first T-Zone outlet in Sunnyvale, the new location specializes in systems for customers who use languages other than English. The store is in a shopping center developed by JAPAN TRAVEL BUREAU, INC. and SANWA BANK, LTD. Ado plans to build the third T-Zone shop in northern California as well.
