In 1977, Jerry
and Joann Weiss formed the original Yak Yak Shack in Austintown, Ohio.
In the early days, the store was actually operated entirely from a small trailer with owner, Jerry Weiss, doing most of the repair work himself.
As time progressed and the quality of work that the Yak Yak Shack
had done and their reputation for being customer oriented and friendly spread, the business grew.
Since the early days the Yak Yak Shack
had become well known as a leader in CB and stereo repair in Northeast Ohio.
In 1987 Jerry Weiss
decided that it would be in the best interest of the company if he
were to relocate to Corning, California and expand his
business to the west coast.
