Mobile Klinik, December 30th, 2016
Canadian professional smartphone and tablet repair chain, Mobile Klinik, today announced four new retail stores opened in the final quarter of 2016.
December 30, 2016 (Toronto, ON): Mobile Klinik opened in September 2015 with a flagship corporate store in Ottawa at the St Laurent Mall and a second location in Quebec a few months later. After completing a multi-million dollar private investor funding round in mid-2016, Mobile Klinik has now opened four locations in the Greater Toronto Area and one additional location in Gatineau, Quebec, bringing the store total to seven within the Ottawa-to-Toronto corridor at the end of 2016.
In November 2016, Mobile Klinik opened in Les Promenades Mall, Gatineau. In December, the Greater Toronto Area rollout continued with new Mobile Klinik locations at Dundas Square and at 65 Queen Street West in the PATH, in addition to a store at Vaughan Mills. In 2017, Mobile Klinik will be expanding its store network to offer more Canadians unparalleled smartphone repair services in markets across Canada.
“It’s been a great year for the Mobile Klinik team. One year in and we see our strong growth as public recognition of the gap we fill for consumers in the marketplace and of our ability to offer Canadians quality, fast, professional repair services and advice,” said Rob Bruce, CEO and founding partner, Mobile Klinik. “We are most grateful to our exceptional customers and employees who have embraced our unique concept in ‘while you wait’ smartphone and tablet repair,” he said.
Mobile Klinik specializes in fast, while-you-wait repair service of virtually all models and makes of smartphones, providing customers an immediate free estimate to fix cracked screens, water damage, software, battery, camera and other issues in stores. Mobile Klinik uses top quality parts, professionally trained technicians and provides a data security guarantee as they repair devices while customers look on. In 2016, it began offering Certified Pre-Owned devices, smartphone trade-in services and piloting monthly device protection plans.
Mobile Klinik’s concept of ‘while-you-wait’ professional smartphone repair was introduced to Canada by four Canadian wireless and retail leaders: Alain Adam; Rob Bruce; Ken Campbell; and Naaman Zorub, who recognized an industry need to shift from selling to servicing devices, and a consumer need to receive a professional, convenient, lifetime warrantied alternative to existing repair options.
