ORLANDO, Fla., May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading tech repair brand uBreakiFix has partnered with North America’s largest home furnishing and appliance retailer, Nebraska Furniture Mart (NFM), to bring high quality electronics support to NFM locations in Kansas City, Kansas; Omaha, Nebraska; and Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. uBreakiFix allows NFM customers the convenience of professional, same-day device repair on site while they shop.

uBreakiFix services anything with a power button, including smartphones, game consoles, tablets, computers, drones, hoverboards, and everything in between. To date, uBreakiFix has completed more than 4 million repairs. While common fixes include cracked screens, software issues, and camera issues, the brand offers support for most technical problems on any electronic device, regardless of make or model.

uBreakiFix opened in NFM’s Omaha and Kansas City stores on Dec. 29, 2017, followed by Dallas-Fort Worth on April 13, 2018. uBreakiFix’s customer-centric business model aligns closely with NFM’s commitment to improving customers’ lifestyles.

“At uBreakiFix, we pride ourselves on delivering quality, convenience, and value in everything we do,” said Justin Wetherill, president and co-founder of uBreakiFix. “In today’s highly connected world, the last thing our customers want is to part with their devices for an extended period of time. Our store-within-a-store partnership with NFM allows us to serve customers with timely, on-site repairs completed while they shop.”

Nebraska Furniture Mart was founded by Rose Blumkin in 1937 in the basement of her husband’s pawn shop in Omaha, Neb. In 1983, investor Warren Buffett purchased a majority interest in NFM and made it part of the Berkshire Hathaway family of companies. Today, NFM is the nation’s largest home furnishings retailer, selling furniture, flooring, appliances, and electronics. NFM currently has locations in Omaha, Neb., Des Moines, Iowa, Kansas City, Kan. and Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, which totals over 4.6 million square feet of retail and distribution space.

“We strive to provide the greatest selection and service in the industry,” said Tony Arnold, Director of Marketing at Nebraska Furniture Mart. “We are delighted to add tremendous value to our customers’ shopping experience by providing access to the industry’s leading tech repair professionals within our stores.”

uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 by millennial duo Justin Wetherill and David Reiff, who later partnered with Eddie Trujillo to transition their Internet-based brand to a brick and mortar model. By offering convenience, accessibility, and unparalleled customer service, uBreakiFix filled a gap in the repair marketplace and has since emerged as an industry leader in growth, service offerings, and authorized partnerships. Today, uBreakiFix has more than 385 locations across the U.S. and Canada, as well as strategic partnerships with leading technology companies, including Samsung and Google.
