Hello all, it’s been a few days since my last blog, and I just got an email from a customer asking “where have you been?” I know I’m letting you down, but allow me to explain:
Let me start with a personal note – we got a new puppy. Not just any puppy though, this little girl was dumped by her owner, then caught in a trap for 3 days, all the while other dogs nipping and biting at her. We found her at a shelter, MOGS and this was something that I just had to do. She needed a good home and I’m not new to dogs, but I am new to German Shepherds. Additionally she’s a puppy at only about 12 weeks, so I’m a little sleepy from the late night dog walks and bathroom training. So firstly I’m a little tired and excited and happy about this new family member all at the same time!
Next, we’re opening up a new retail store here in Kansas City, Missouri. That’s right, our very first “real” retail store will be unveiled next week. We are just waiting for our signage to be installed and it’s going to look something like this mockup:
This has really been a time consumer to be honest. We’ve moved our entire computer division over to the new location (not to worry, we can still take laptop and computer repairs at our main, Olathe Repair Center) and things are starting to get into order.
We’re doing our best to keep the “move” seamless with our operations and it’s been a challenge. Nevertheless I’ve been through worse – many warehouse resets – many new division offerings – and many new endeavors that I wasn’t nearly as confident – and came through with ease.
So a little more work and a few more days and we’ll open the flood gates over at our 133rd and State Line location in Kansas City, Missouri. We’ve got 4 new employees staffed along with transplants from our Olathe location and we’re excited to bring the service you love to a location nearer to you.
What happens after this? Once we establish this location we’ve got the cogs spinning to open in other major metropolitan areas. Is Mission Repair coming to your city next? Just hang tight and see!
I’ll be back soon, Ryan
