Mobile Klinik Professional Smartphone Repair reports that it has achieved its fiscal year-end goal of 80 locations after it completed the acquisition of the eight-unit fonelab smartphone repair, sales and accessories chain in Ontario. The acquisition of fonelab by Mobile Klinik closed on January 15, 2020. The eight locations, in CF Fairview Mall in Toronto, Scarborough Town Centre in Scarborough, Oshawa Centre in Oshawa, Upper Canada Mall in Newmarket, CF Lime Ridge in Hamilton, CF Fairview Park in Kitchener, Conestoga Mall in Waterloo and in CF Masonville Place in London, will be converted to the Mobile Klinik brand in the first quarter of 2020. In addition to the repair services, the six-year old fonelab chain also featured certified pre-owned phone sales as well as an assortment of branded and private-label smartphone accessories. Fonelab is an authorized repair service provider for Samsung, LG and Huawei smartphones and tablets. “We have a clear vision to provide Canadians with much-needed, professional, trusted smartphone and tablet repair and care services, and fonelab is an excellent fit with that vision. Their skilled staff along with their desirable shopping mall locations will enhance our rapidly-growing business,” said Tim McGuire, CEO, Mobile Klinik. “This acquisition caps a wildly successful growth year: we started the year with 40 Mobile Klinik storefronts and just one year later, we’ve doubled our network to 80 stores. I’m already looking forward to this time next year, when we’ll have blown right by the 100-store mark.” The fast growing Mobile Klinik Professional Smartphone Repair is the country’s largest consumer while-you-wait smartphone and tablet repair, care and services retail chains with stores in major shopping malls, select Walmart stores, and other high-traffic retail locations. Growth plans focus on in-line and kiosk sites with convenient access in malls and mixed-use projects. The size required ranges from about 350 square feet to over 1000 square feet. Janine Maginniss at Oberfeld Snowcap handles the chain’s site selection across Canada. Andy Goodman at Frantel Canada continues to handle the franchise search.
