Every now and again I’ll snap a picture of a device that we receive for repair and share it here on the blog. Some are normal “cracks” and bends; others are smashed up pretty good. For some reason, my blog readers love looking at smashed units…so Carl at my Mission, Kansas store sent this picture to me last night:
Now that’s what a cracked iPad is supposed to look like, right?
I often wonder how these things happen…obviously this unit was dropped…but the exact story gets lost in the repair sometimes. This unit appears to have been “dragged” along the concrete, like it fell off the roof of a car or slid down the driveway. Most of the time, it doesn’t matter to us “how” it happened, but knowing sometimes satisfies the curiosity!
I’m sitting here in my front office at Mission Repair in Lenexa, Kansas and the snow just started to fall. Soon after, I heard lots of sirens and can see the commotion rumbling just down the street. The weather is starting to hit us, and the freezing rain is really what is causing the issue. Cars are starting to slide all over the place!
Here’s a pic out into the parking lot as we speak:
I know that it doesn’t look like much, but that little bit of snow on top of the slick roads makes a dangerous situation. It looks like I should probably put it into 4 wheel drive for a little while unit the road crews get their act together.
We’ve have several people come in during the “mess”. I want to remind everyone that we are open until 7 pm, and if is suits your lifestyle to wait until the roads as a little better, then I recommend that you hang tight in your warm houses and offices while KDOT gets the plows up and down the highway. I bet that by 5 pm today it’ll be just fine to move around the area.
We hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving. Black Friday is here!
We hope you are enjoying time with your family this weekend. With Thanksgiving gone, that can only mean one thing – Black Friday is upon us. If you are searching for holiday gift ideas – look no further. Each year we service many devices as “gifts” and with our Black Friday sale, you can see why.
Today we have special store hours at all of our locations. We got up nice and early and opened to the public at 6:00am and offering a whopping 20% off of all of our services to our customers that visit us today! Be sure to BRING IN THIS COUPON to receive the discount. In years past, we’ve had huge success early in the morning, and we will close at 2:00pm. Why 2:00pm? It’s so we can still get your repairs done AND get to the Mall before they close down, so we can get our shopping done!

We’ll see you here, it’s a lot of fun!

It’s almost Halloween, and we’ve got a special that’s perfect for the occasion.
On October 31st, 2015 you can receive 15% off your order when you visit one of our locations just for wearing a costume! Now, let’s discuss what a costume is. For example, if you’re a Police Officer, you can’t come in with your uniform on and say “I’m a Police Officer for Halloween”, that won’t work…sorry Tony B!
We are looking for creativity, and anyone in a great costume that lets us take a picture of them might also be published on our blog to be read by millions. Interested in stopping by Saturday? We will be handing out candy to the little ones (a safe way to trick or treat!) and giving an awesome 15% discount to anyone that is dressed in a costume. Come on by!
