Apple iPhone 5SE

Hello all –

If you have been following the news releases or the Mission Repair blog, there has been plenty of reviews and opinions about the new 4″ iPhone 5SE. The best news is the LCD screen, should the worst happen, is the same part as the iPhone 5S. Although the cables are slightly different, this should keep repair part costs within reason for this new iPhone! I’ll keep you updated as the parts become available. If you purchased the iPhone 5SE I’d love to hear what you think about it.  Leave a comment below. 

Have a great day!

Jeff

New Repair: Samsung Galaxy S7!

Hello everyone –

I’m excited to say we are now able to repair your Samsung Galaxy S7 screen. If the worst happens… and your new S7 takes a dive to the ground, we can now get the high quality repair parts in Black and Gold (“White” coming soon) and offer the S7 repair. Due to the S7 being so new, the part costs are still a bit high. Call us in advance and we can arrange to have the part in stock when you arrive.

Check out the pricing on missionrepair.com or give us a call!

Happy Monday!

Jeff

This is a nice surprise.

Good afternoon!

I headed out to lunch today and needed to get some gas in my truck and I stopped at the Costco that is just around the corner from our Lenexa Store.  I was pleasantly surprised with this:

I know that there are a lot of pictures of gas prices on Facebook and random pics floating around the Internet, but today here in Kansas City at Costco, gas is $1.329/gallon.  That’s darn near the lowest I’ve seen since I moved here in 2001!

It’s an election year, so that’s got something to do with it, right?  I’m sure the Democrats want a “thank you”.  I’d also bet the Republicans would like to take credit.  I don’t know who to thank – nor do I really care – so I’m going to just give a huge “shout out” to the gasoline gods that helped make my day by only costing me about $21 to fill up my tank this afternoon.  I don’t normally mind if gas goes up and down much; but today made a good impression.

Speaking of savings…we are extending our Presidents Day Sale through Saturday – but you’ll only know the coupon code if you get our NEWSLETTER (HINT – another one is coming to you tonight!).  Hopefully you’ve already subscribed, if not, you should do so here!

Have a good evening, Ryan

 

Just for your information in case you were stopping by our Lenexa office!

Hi there!  If you live in the Kansas City area, you probably know that there is a HUGE “GATEWAY” project that is currently under construction near the I35 and I435 interchange.  In fact, there have been an amazing number of improvements in the last few months, and traffic is already flowing correctly in many areas.

Now it’s time for the crews to move Northbound, and this will effect the roads leading to Mission Repair in Lenexa.

Typically, I’d tell my customers to exit I35 and go West onto 95th Street.  People in the area know this exit well and it’s very commercialized with Costco on the West and Sam’s Club to the East.  We’ve got the Oak Park Mall which seems to be busy year round, and it’s just past Sam’s Club.  I don’t know how people will be getting the East easily, but all of the businesses on the West have a real plan in place!

Starting next Monday, instead of getting off at 95th Street, our customers will Exit one more off ramp North on 87th Street, and turn West.  Then quickly turn right onto Marshall Drive and head South to reach our service lab.  Now this intersection may get a little busy for a while…all of the Costco traffic will also head South and drive right by Mission Repair…so don’t be surprised if you see me out on the road from time-to-time waving customers in.  We will have a significant number of new vehicles passing our location and I am really excited for that!!

Well I thought that I’d share this map and this info so you knew that not only are all of the businesses will remain open during this major upgrade to the Kansas City area, but I have a feeling it’s really going to spike business here at Mission Repair as we will be in front of more customers than ever before.  Thanks for reading!

NOTE:  If you visit our Mission, Kansas location, you’re in the clear!!

Take care, Ryan

Deal of the month – active for 20 more days.

Hello there,

I keep forgetting that it’s a “leap year” and we have that extra day here in the month to get some extra tasks accomplished.  I don’t know if it was by design, but many major events are aligned with leap years like 2016.

The UEFA European Football Championship, Summer Olympic Games, United States Presidential Election and Winter Olympic Games (up until 1992) are all held on leap years. While there is no definitive reason why these events happen to only take place during leap years and it may be solely due to coincidence, they all help to make leap years particularly special.

Another interesting fact about leap year:  Women Can Propose to a Man on February 29th!

I believe that this “rule” doesn’t apply much to us today, but since the 19th century, tradition has stated that women have the right to propose to a man on February 29th. In times where gender roles were more concrete than today, this was considered a very unique and bold thing to do. The practice dates all the way back to 1288 where the tradition was first observed in Scotland. In recent years, the tradition has become more playful with the concept of the Sadie Hawkings Dance, where young girls ask boys to accompany them to the event.

When asked how many days in a year, the common answer is 365 days, but in actuality the Earth actually takes more than 365 days to complete a rotation; it takes about 365.2422 days. This translates to every year actually being a year and one quarter days. To account for this problem, every four years an additional day is added to the calendar. In the traditional Gregorian calendar adopted by a the United States and many other areas of the world, this day comes in the form of February 29. Years containing this extra calendar day are known as leap years. Since they only happen once every four years, people have long associate leap years with special traditions and customs. Have a friend or loved one that was born on 2/29?  That’s an interesting one indeed!

Well, here at Mission Repair, we are celebrating this long month with a couple of “Deals of the Month”.  We have special pricing on the iPad with Retina Glass Replacements that need no coupon…but must be ordered by 2/29/16 to receive this awesome deal.  have questions?  Give us a call 844-459-0105.

Take care, Ryan
