March 29, 2019

MIDLOTHIAN, Va., March 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opens its newest location, uBreakiFix Brandermill, on March 20 at 4672 Commonwealth Center Parkway. This is the brand’s first location in Midlothian, as well as in Chesterfield County.

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 Brandermill is the third location for Chuck Allen, who also owns the Short Pump and Glen Allen stores. Allen plans to open two additional stores in the future.

“We are thrilled to begin serving the tech needs of the Brandermill community,” said Allen. “uBreakiFix offers high quality tech repairs at an affordable price-point so customers can have a hassle-free experience. We want to help people reconnect to their devices quickly so they can focus on the things that matter.”

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.
