We are starting to stretch across the country.

Hello everyone,

By now you’ve probably heard that we have a Grand Opening at a new Mission Repair location in Lakewood, Colorado on 2/2/15. The final preparations, marketing and training is happening now! In fact, I need to pack my bags again because I’m heading there tomorrow afternoon!

It’s true. Indianapolis, Atlanta, and Tampa are on the board and in the works.

We are currently training the new Store Managers at our Corporate Headquarters in Olathe, Kansas. Once they have the skills to perform the day-to-day operations of a retail store, they will be given the keys to the kingdom and grab the helm of their very own location. It’s an exciting time here at the Mission Repair headquarters and we are looking for several more Store Manager Trainees over the next 12 months, so check our Career listings page for openings. You might just want to be part of the Mission Repair experience too!

With all of that being said, we are also offering 10% off your next repair order starting today through Sunday 1/18/15 at Midnight, just use coupon code “MANAGER” to receive 10% off that next repair!

(Coupon cannot be combined with any other coupon or discount including Got Repair benefit. Valid on new orders only, expires 1/18/15 at midnight)

Thanks everyone, have a great night!

Take care, Ryan

“William B. Strong” coming through!

Hello everyone,

I was on my way back to the office this afternoon and was pulling up on this train – if you click on it and zoom in, you’ll see that the back is one large glass pane and you can see the passengers sitting in their seats:

It intrigued me because we rarely see passenger trains on this line…yes, Union Station in Kansas City is an Amtrak station, but down here it’s more commercial trains carrying “stuff” rather than people. I had to grab my camera and snap a picture!

I’m a train guy. I love trains around the Christmas tree, and if you talk to my mother she can confirm that as a child I had a 4’x8′ sheet of plywood in the living room of our house…that was full of trains. Yes, my parents must have loved me a lot; there’s probably no way that I would have allowed my son to occupy that much room on a “permanent” basis in the house. Not that I don’t want him to have everything, but it’s just a pretty big commitment to have 32 sq. ft. locked up in an area that might have guests, pets or even us!

The train car that you seen in the pic had the name “William B. Strong” on the side of it which must be for William Barstow Strong who served as president of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway from 1881 to 1889. I looked that up by the way 😉

So this is a shout out to any of my family members that are looking for a great gift for me on my birthday: I’d love to take a ride on this train. That’s it!

On a business note, we’ve got a fun-filled newsletter going out in just a few minutes with some more interesting Mission Repair info. Check your email in boxes shortly (yes, there are discounts inside)!

Take care, Ryan

TBT: Mission Repair Is Expanding Again

Happy Throwback Thursday! This time last year we were working hard to complete the renovations to our new location in Mission, KS. It takes a lot of hard work to get a new location up and running but it is also really fun watching the transformation unfold. Our Mission location on Johnson Drive and Nall used to be Gass Camera repair and it took time and dedication to get it into the service center it is today.

If you have been reading our newsletters you have heard that we are opening a new location in Lakewood, CO on February 2nd. We have a group heading up there this weekend to finish up the new location, pass out business cards and promote the business – we are really excited! This location will be just like our locations in Kansas. They will include a team of certified technicians and customer service representatives that can take care of any iPod, Smartphone, Tablet and Computer repair needs you may have.

Stay tuned for updates on our Grand Opening : )

Happy Thursday,
Melanie
