Campo on Webb Street in Metairie; this store had huge red neon lettering on their sign.
Campo Electronics opened their first store in 1967 in Harahan Louisiana just outside of New Orleans. The company grew to 33 stores with several New Orleans area locations, and was taken over in 1998 by A-1 Appliances. Some stores were closed and others were converted to the new A-1 Appliance and Electronics name. Sometime in 2006 seven years after the take over; a new Campo store opened just across Clearview Pkwy from the Clearview Mall, but it was much smaller than the old Campo stores. I am not sure if the Clearview store is affiliated with the company that took over Campo because there is not much information available online. Campo electronics was similar in layout to the Conn's electronic stores in Southeast Texas.
