LUBBOCK, Texas, Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix South Lubbock, on Dec. 17 at 7610 Milwaukee Avenue, Suite 100 in The Hub Shopping Center. This is the brand’s second location in the northwest region of the state, joining a store in Amarillo.

uBreakiFix services anything with a power button, including smartphones, game consoles, tablets, computers, drones, hoverboards, and everything in between. To date, uBreakiFix has completed more than 5 million repairs. While common fixes include cracked screens, software issues, and camera issues, the brand offers support for most technical problems on any electronic device, regardless of make or model.

Through strategic partnerships with leading technology companies, including Samsung and Google, uBreakiFix provides Samsung Galaxy customers and Google Pixel and Pixelbook customers with manufacturer-backed, same-day repair services using genuine parts. Through the partnership with Samsung, Galaxy owners can get in and out-of-warranty repairs at more than 300 locations nationwide, with most repairs completed in two hours or less.

uBreakiFix South Lubbock is the second location for Tim and Whitney McCright, who also own the Amarillo store.

“We have close ties to the Lubbock community, so we were thrilled both personally and professionally to open our second uBreakiFix location here,” Tim McCright said. “We believe wholeheartedly in providing high quality tech services at an affordable price, and we have enjoyed starting to fulfill this need within the Lubbock community—not to mention, we love cheering on the Texas Tech Red Raiders!”

uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 by millennial duo Justin Wetherill and David Reiff, who later partnered with Eddie Trujillo to transition their Internet-based brand to a brick and mortar model. By offering convenience, accessibility, and unparalleled customer service, uBreakiFix filled a gap in the repair marketplace and has since emerged as an industry leader in growth, service offerings, and authorized partnerships. In 2018, Wetherill was inducted into the Forbes Technology Council, and uBreakiFix earned a top spot on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® list, ranking #18 overall, #1 in the Electronics Repair category, and #1 on the Top New Franchises list.
