Hi there friends,
We’ve already had a few calls about this; so I want to remind each of you that we will be CLOSED JULY 4th, 2015! Normal business hours will remain in effect Friday July 3rd and after the 4th. Since we are open on the 3rd, I want to make everyone aware that FedEx is on a modified shipping schedule and we’ve been “warned” about their changes. They are picking up early on Friday, so we will do everything that we can to get repairs done and completed and shipped back out to our customers.
Independence Day means fireworks and BBQ’s for the Arter Family…I hope you spend some quality time with your own family as well.
The last thing I want to say is…”Happy Birthday America!”
Take care, Ryan
Good morning everyone!
We are at a cross-roads here at Mission Repair in our Olathe location, and our long-term lease is coming due. So this big question is, do we renew or relocate our headquarters?
I’ve poised the question to our employees at our quarterly meeting, and we have a split decision. I mean we just finished out new shipping room and new break room and it seems that we are all doing quite well with the space we have…in fact there’s still more room to grow. However our current space is down a dead end street and not all that convenient for our customers to find us.
How would a drive through work? It’s possible that Mission Repair will have the first drive-through iPhone repair center in the country (that I know of) – so we are working on it. It would be especially helpful in the cold winter months here in Kansas so our customers wouldn’t have to jump out of the car with the kiddos in the snow…things become a mess.
Well, we’ve got another meeting today at 11:00am to visit a few locations right off of I35, so I’ll have an answer for us soon. It’s a tough decision to move from a home that we love; and yes I only live about 5 miles from our current location. Maybe it’s time to relocate a bit for our customer’s sake, we’ll have some more info for you soon!
Take care, have a great day in the sunshine, wherever you are.
Good afternoon friends of Mission Repair-
It’s Tuesday afternoon, St. Patrick’s Day, and our Ribbon Cutting Event at our new Lakewood, Colorado store was a success. Our team lined up in front of the camera:
And then I used those gigantic scissors to cut the ribbon and we got this action shot:
Laura at the chamber was very accommodating and it’s great to be part of such a HUGE chamber. It’s small businesses working together, and that’s what we’re all about. I’d like to spend more time here in Colorado, but it’s almost time for our trip back to Kansas. Yeah, there’s a bit more “scenery” here in the Centennial State with the gorgeous Rocky Mountains and the unbelievable weather that we’ve had these last few days; but the mothership is calling. Kansas here I come!
Talk to you again from Olathe tomorrow,
