Downtown Roch. building is now pretty in pink

A small, downtown Rochester building with a long, colorful history is now pretty in pink.

11212011callthegirlpinkbuildingStanding at 20 Sixth Street S.W., near the VFW Post 1215 Club, the minuscule cube of a building has been a pizza place, a jewelry store, a dog-grooming business and even an ice cream shop with a big frosty cone on top.

And now, for its latest incarnation, it is swathed in a coat of cotton candy pink.

Lisa Hendrickson recently moved the Rochester office of her Call That Girl computer repair and support business into the spot across First Avenue from the ruins of the ex-KTTC building.

The pink, along with the black trim, matches the colors of the Call That Girl logo.

Her information technology operation offers software fixes and maintenance via remote access — such as virus removal — as well as nuts and bolts on-site hardware repair.

And she now goes beyond desktops and laptops to offer specialty tech repairs for things like iPods, gaming systems and plasma TVs. Call That Girl can also work on household appliances like microwave ovens, washers, dryers, trash compactors and vacuum cleaners.

Hendrickson, who founded Call That Girl in Rochester, has other locations in the Twin Cities and Winona.

She re-opened the Rochester location last fall after she had moved it completely to the Twin Cities for three years.

It was last on North Broadway before its recent move to its pink home downtown.


That site was most famously (and, probably for the longest time) the AR-TIC root beer stand, more commonly known as "Bennies". They served terrific root beer in frosty mugs and what was known as the "Mexi-burger", a spicy loose meat sandwich that was terrific. It was a great hangout for those of us of a "certain age".

Excellent way of brandinga Computer Repair Small Business!
