Electronics repair shop uBreakiFix has opened its latest location in Peterborough, Ont.
The store offers repairs on smartphones, tablets, computers, and more to help the community stay connected.
uBreakiFix Peterborough is owned by Zain Jaffery and Sabil Ur-Rehman. The business partners have hopes to expand by opening more locations in the surrounding areas in the future.
“Staying connected is critical right now and it’s rewarding to be part of something that makes that possible for those in our community,” said Jaffery. “Prior to opening our uBreakiFix in Peterborough, we owned a private cell phone repair business. This opportunity has allowed us to not only expand our services but also reach more customers who can benefit from what we have to offer.”
uBreakiFix offers repair service on anything with a power button, from smartphones, tablets, and computers to drones, hover boards, and game consoles. To date, uBreakiFix has completed more than nine million repairs at its more than 600 locations across North America. While common fixes include shattered screens, software, and camera issues, the brand offers support for most technical problems on any electronic device, regardless of make or model.
uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 by Justin Wetherill and David Reiff to fill a gap in the market for affordable, high-quality phone repair. The duo soon partnered with Eddie Trujillo to transition their internet-based repair brand to a brick-and-mortar model.
uBreakiFix began franchising in 2013 and currently operates more than 600 locations across the Canada and the U.S.
