The IBM Product centers were bought by NYNEX, and in turn purchased by ComputerLand.

The Baltimore NYNEX location was in the our ComputerLand franchise protected territory, so technically ComputerLand Corporation was in violation of our ComputerLand Franchise.  This was great news for us, since it allowed us to get out of the ComputerLand Franchise, and continue until this day.

And don't forget about the IBM Product Centers, bought out in the late 80's by NyNex.  They sold IBM business products including copiers, typewriters, Displaywriters, System 36 accessories, printers and eventually PCs and modems and such, diskettes...
