When Ben Falk, owner of Beagle Brain in Nickels Arcade, decided to move to Seattle, he sold the business to his employees Raul Tomas Perdomo and Claire Harrison. When Beagle Brain opened at 2 Nickels Arcade in 2009, it was a computer repair shop with a retail component. A subsequent move eastward down the arcade left the retail behind to focus solely on repair.

Perdomo and Harrison are continuing the business at 8 Nickels Arcade under the name Apples and Oranges. Falk is still doing component-level computer repairs in Seattle–he’s a “genius,” says Perdomo, able to fix complex circuit boards that have tiny defects. The new owners are still in touch with their old boss for work that needs the genius touch.
