Small Electronics Repair Chain Opens First Michigan Storefront in Royal Oak


A store specializing in the repair of small electronics such as smartphones and computers, called uBreakiFix, has opened its first store in Michigan in Royal Oak, with plans to open 15 additional locations in the state over the next few years, in cities such as Troy, Brighton, and Southfield.

Drew Lessaris, franchise owner of uBreakiFix, says the shop, located at 30274 Woodward Ave., just south of 13 Mile Road, can address issues such as cracked screens, water damage, software problems, and camera issues for a variety of electronics, including iPhones, iPods, game consoles and tablets. He says the store has an average repair cost of $85, and each repair comes with a 90-day warranty.

“Expanding uBreakiFix to Michigan means being able to provide this community with a one-stop shop for all its technology repair needs,” Lessaris says.

Lessaris, along with Ron, Joyce, and Matthew Harb, also operate uBreakiFix stores in Indiana and Arkansas, and have plans to open 15 more stores in Michigan, in cities including Novi, Canton Township, Bloomfield Hills, Southfield, Dearborn, Ann Arbor, Brighton, Lansing, East Lansing, and Troy.

Orlando-based uBreakiFix, founded in 2009, has more than 185 stores across North America. The brand opened 63 stores last year, and it expects to have 275 stores across North America by next year.
