Happy holidays from Mission Repair.

Hello blog readers. We are just a few days away from a long Christmas holiday and we are going to be closed on Christmas Eve (12/24/10) to be at home with our families. From all of us at Mission Repair, we wish you a Happy Holiday and safe weekend.

Until then we are still open for business and rocking. Stop on by our office – we have more Christmas treats than we can eat and we’d be happy to share the goodies!

Merry Christmas, Ryan

Holiday Hours and Christmas Party at Mission Repair!

Hello everyone, can you feel the holiday approaching us. . .fast? I didn’t really let it register until all of the wrapped presents filled the tree last weekend at the Arter house. . .I don’t know why I waited so long but we ended up wrapping presents for several hours on Sunday. My son Casey has PLENTY and my daughter, Tayler, basically asked for cash – how do you wrap cash? In one card? Well that’s going to be a “quick” Christmas for her! Regardless, the quantity ratio is off, but it’s all about the giving right? I’m just looking forward to a couple of days off coming up and spending time with my family.

So this week is our annual company Christmas party- and we’ve reserved the Midway Showroom at Dave and Busters in Kansas City (again) for our celebration! We’ll get 30 of us together, split up into a few teams and run the gauntlet of activities they provide. They then serve us a HUGE buffet of awesome food and drinks- and we always finish with my version of a White Elephant gift exchange. It’s actually a Mission Repair “Green” Elephant – I supply all of the gifts and hand them out in a game-show type fashion. It’s a highlight for me, always brings a bunch of laughs (last year one of the gag gifts was a pair of Santa Boxers and a Santa Neck Tie, it was a “complete” outfit!) and it got passed around and exchanged a few times – it was kind of like a hot potato!

With all of these Christmas activities, it’s good to know that Mission Repair will have a few changes in our normal hours coming soon –

Mission Repair is CLOSED on December 24, 2010 and December 31, 2010.

We will be working extra hard to get all of our shipments out this week before the holiday. . .however our biggest sales day of the entire year was yesterday (except for Cyber Monday) and it’s made our operations manager Troy, a little nervous.

I’m totally confident. We’ll get the job done like we always do and we’ll be ready for 2011.

Thanks, I’ll be talking to you soon, Ryan
