Stop by our Mission, Kansas store on Saturdays…

Hello friends, if you stop by our Mission, Kansas store on Saturdays you might find that you’ll be shopping for some awesome local foods and flora as well!

Starting June 6th 2015, every Saturday in downtown Mission begins the first weekly “Farm and Flower Market” will be held just outside of the glass windows of our Mission Repair Express location!

I just want to say that I LOVE farmer’s markets. They feature foods sold directly by farmers to consumers and this one will consist of booths, tables and stands, all outdoors, where farmers sell fruits, vegetables, meats, and flowers. It’s great exercise, fun for the whole family, and you can stop into Mission Repair and get that iPhone repaired while you shop.

It couldn’t be better! See you out there.

Take care, Ryan

Mission Repair Express – Indianapolis – COMING SOON!

Hello again everyone, you read that right…

I just posted a blog that I’ll be opening our first Mission Repair Express in Colorado in a few short weeks…the location is perfect, the site is staffed and I’m ready to have a Grand Opening soon.

Now that we’re “locked and loaded” in Lakewood, Colorado (a suburb of Denver), we signed an agreement to open a new site in Indianapolis, Indiana as well!

During the holidays, Indianapolis hosts a slew of fun Holiday themed events including the “Devour Downtown Winterfest”, the “Festival of Trees”, the “Circle of Lights” and the “Christmas at the Zoo”. This is an amazing city that I’ve spent some time in.

In fact, Dan McQuaid, a former Tackle for the Indianapolis Colts (A friend from a “lifetime” ago) retired from the Colts and moved from Indianapolis to Sacramento. I was his moving buddy as we filled up his Ford Bronco and made the trek from Indiana to California in the dead of Winter. This was back in 1990; I was freshly out of High School, and Dan was freshly into retirement. The best part about the trip was that I got to spend some time in the “underbelly” of the Colt’s stadium. Hang out where the players hung out…see the lockers, use the workout room, and see where the future “Hall of Fame” Quarterback Peyton Manning would eventually start playing in 1998.

So, with my personal experiences aside, the more exciting part of this blog is that we will be opening in Indianapolis soon. We are scouting locations, but have a lot of the parts in motion and will be deciding on an address shortly. Once we do, just like our new Denver site, it won’t take long for us to move in.

It’s interesting; we receive a significant amount of repairs mailed in from the Indianapolis region. More so than Colorado, so we will be sharing this info with our Indiana customers because we’ll be “locals”. Thanks for everyone’s patronage and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Thanks for reading…we’re dedicated to making sure that Mission Repair provides the best possible services and rest assured there’s a master plan that goes along with all of our new Mission Repair Express locations, and the competition won’t be able to keep up!

I’ll be back soon, Ryan

The “New” Mission Kansas unveiling approaches!

Hello everyone,

The City of Mission, Kansas is wrapping up construction and providing cleanup of the downtown area to launch and dedicate the new streets and sidewalks that they have been working to complete. In fact, I am totally impressed by how quickly things got done, and Johnson Drive just looks spectacular!

Mission repair Express- the construction is almost complete!

Good morning everyone,

We have been through an immense construction project at our Mission Repair Express location in Mission Kansas all summer- and the end is in sight.

The City of Mission, Kansas started a massive “re-do” of it’s downtown area where our Mission Repair Express location currently resides – and the unveiling is this weekend on November 14th and 15th, 2014! They are finishing the final touches, and added these brick benches in front of our store last week:

The dirt will be filled with grass, tress, and plantings hopefully by Friday, I can’t wait to see the finished results! Directly across the street is a park that has been fulled sodded and ready for long walks, joggers and picnic goers. The entire downtown run looks completely different and the City of Mission is ready. On Friday morning there will be a parade and the City is handing out “swag bags” (look for your Mission Repair Coupon Inside!) and we will be giving discounts all weekend long.

We hope to see you there! I’ll be posting some pics of the unveiling Friday!

Take care, Ryan

The best marketing in the world.

Hello everyone-

While visiting Denver last week scouting for the next Mission Repair Express location, and as we were driving downtown, I spotted a “Hollywood Posters” store. Not that I was looking for any posters, but their signage just jumped out at me:

IMG_1266

Read it and think about it. At first I laughed it off as just a ridiculously bad way to convey that they had a lot of posters. But I found myself thinking about the sign, the message (clearly they must have a lot of posters in there) and it stuck with me.

I do a lot of marketing every day. I think about my messages. Maybe it’s time for a little guerrilla marketing at Mission Repair. To be honest, business is going quite well, but it never hurts to mix it up a little.

So I’m thinking about changing our slogan from:

“Mission Repair, The Intelligent Choice”

To:

“Mission Repair, we’ve serviced more iPhones than there are in the world”.

Or something to that effect. Any ideas for me? Until it appears in a vision, I’ll talk to you again soon.

Looking for a coupon?

Hello everyone- we sent out a newsletter yesterday to our local region, and if you missed it, we’ve got the special right here for you.

mission

We are offering 20% off on any repair now through Friday at closing time (which is 7:00 pm, CST) if you visit our location in Mission, Kansas. The address is 5604 Johnson Drive, Mission Kansas 66202, and you can get directions here.

Please note that this is NOT valid on mail-in orders; don’t worry for all of our customers in other areas of the country we will make sure to offer you a special shortly. Rather, this is valid on new walk-in repairs at our newest store. Why? We are celebrating the “near” completion of the downtown district redesign and if you remember the “old down town”, you’ll see that the streets have been improved, the sidewalks are wider and well designed, and the parking is much better. This store of ours is downtown in a great location and now you don’t need to walk through a construction zone to get to it 😉

It’s a customer appreciation sale and all you need to do to get this special pricing is print out a copy of this blog (or the newsletter if you’re a subscriber), walk in to our Mission Repair Express location now through tomorrow evening at 7:00pm, show your customer service representative this special and place your repair order to receive the 20% discount.

Thank you.
