Mission Repair Opening in Lenexa, Kansas – Coming Soon!

Hello there blog readers-

If you’ve been following our blog, you know that we’re talking about our newest Indianapolis location a lot. In fact, we’re heading to Indianapolis Thursday night to have a final meeting (hopefully) with our new landlord out there!

There’s some more exciting news around the Kansas City area as well, and it’s that we’re moving to an amazing retail location just off of I35 in Lenexa.

In fact, there’s a Costco right next door to us. We’ve got a gigantic lit up monument sign that hopefully will be up and installed by the beginning of August.

So check out our locations page to see when we will be having our grand opening. It’s going to tie in nicely with our 1 Millionth Unique Blog Visitor that appears will happen in the next 2 months. We will be celebrating that too in a big way. As of this morning, we are at 966,074 Unique Visitors (check the counter on the right!) and when we hit 1 million we will memorialize it in a big way.

Stay tuned…and if you’ve got a truck we might need some help moving a few items next weekend. I’ll buy the pizza 😉

Thanks for reading, Ryan

The storm has passed. And a coupon!

Hello there storm watchers!

If you’re in the Kansas City area (or at least in the Olathe/Lenexa/Overland Park area), you know that we just had a gnarly storm pass through that knocked out some power, moved some patio furniture around and caused some panic amongst us locals for a bit.

Skies are clear and the storms have passed!

Skies are clear and the storms have passed!

It’s amazing how we get riled up so quickly- just before the storm hit not only did I get an alert on my phone, but 3 different text messages from 3 different people warning me about it. I do appreciate the “heads up” when it comes to anything that can cause me to be in danger, I’m not so worried about that. However I have seen, in multiple instances, that when the weather “authorities” start to sound panicked, the rest of us tend to follow along. It’s worse when there’s snow out…

Now you can hear it from me, the weather “authority” for this morning…it’s OK to go outside now!

The storms have passed and customers are starting to arrive in normal numbers at our stores here in Olathe and in Mission Kansas. Our Colorado store never had any issue of course. It’s just been rockin’ like normal – they’re thinking “what storm?!?” like the rest of the country 😉

If you do get our and visit either our Olathe or Mission stores today, don’t for get to PRINT OUT YOUR COUPON for savings today, tomorrow and Friday.

Talk to you soon! Ryan

Yay…it’s Monday afternoon!

Hello again folks,

It’s a “slammin” day at Mission Repair today, and we’re taking what appears to be a record number of orders on this fine 6th of July. The day started off like any other Monday, but we’re reaching a few more customers than ever before.

Additionally today, we received a new lease to a new location here in the Kansas City area to expand our “home base” so to speak. This new location will not only have shipping and receiving capabilities, but it will boasts a huge 20′ sign that is directly against the main highway here in Kansas City, I35. If you’re one of the 120,000 cars that pass it every day, you won’t miss it.

So now I’m in the preparation mode of moving, shifting, hiring, and restructuring a few things so we can more efficiently serve our customers. With this new location that is just about directly in between my Olathe, Kansas store and our Mission, Kanas location…we will be poised to help the “drive in” for about a thousand customers a month.

In fact, I’m sure that this new location will make some of my employees happy because most of them live in the area of the new site. This must mean that we will be hiring at Mission Repair in Olathe soon! I’d bet on it!

Small business ownership is an interesting way to live your life, and when it’s difficult at times, it’s the most rewarding at others. Its kind of like having kids. The “highs are high” and the “lows are low”. Like a roller coaster that you can’t get off 😉

So we’re heading up the hill again and I have my hands raised in the air waiting for the big drop and excitement that’s ahead. Clank-clank-clank (that’s my roller coaster sounds climbing up the hill) and away we’ll go.

I will be announcing our new location in Kansas very soon, and we’ll be open faster than you think. Oh yeah, someone asked me about our Indiana location this morning and I wanted to let you know that I’m heading back to Indianapolis to bring the best iPhone repair center to the metro area…we’ll be there next week.

Back to work for me. It’s only 4:00pm and we’ve got a long afternoon ahead of us. Talk to you again soon.

Ryan
