In 1996, Buffington opened the first One-Stop Communications store in a small building on South Main Street in Lewistown. Four years later, the business outgrew its location and moved to Electric Avenue in Lewistown. Today, One-Stop Communications is the area’s largest provider of communications products, and has provided wireless phone, satellite, paging, Internet, satellite radio, two-way radios and related services to over 20,000 customers locally and throughout the United States. One-Stop provides the same products and service in Newport.
Nathan Follmer is the Store Manager of the Newport location. Kylee Mills and Brenda Smiterman are now Account Executives for One-Stop Communications. The store also receives support from Brett Bagrosky, Regional Manager, and Dave Fisher, Regional Service Manager. Both Bagrosky and Fisher have been with the business for over 10 years.
Buffington is the grandson of Helen and the late William Buffington, who moved from the Hawaiian Islands to Perry County in 1953. They owned Buffington’s Office Equipment in Lewistown until their retirement.
