Using an iPhone with a cracked screen is like texting your mother from a pay-phone; it just won't work. But fortunately The Mac Corner’s cadre of expert technicians settle pristine panes of glass into iPhone and iPad frames, rendering the devices practically good as new. Beyond replacing scratched and shattered glass, the shop also repairs Apple gadgets’ worn batteries, wonky software, and other maladies, many of which can be fixed within an hour. The Mac Corner also sells refurbished laptop and desktop computers, iPods, and other gizmos while buying used devices for future fixer-upping.
What started as a small iPod repair operation in 2004, BadGizmo has grown into a one-stop service center for a variety of electronics including iPhones, iPads, and other gadgets. From hard drives and batteries, USB cables to ear buds, the business maintains an ever-growing stock of tools, parts, and accessories to meet most repair needs. It also gives out-of-town customers the option to send devices directly to the store, and is willing to purchase busted items in exchange for cash or long-distance high-fives.
From its modest origins in a garage, Appliance Factory Outlet & Mattresses has blossomed into a full-fledged appliance-vending behemoth with 13 locations throughout Colorado. The outlet compiles an enormous collection of handy household appliances from top-quality brands such as GE, Whirlpool, LG, and KitchenAid.
At each location, knowledgeable staffers shepherd patrons through sprawling showrooms, which collectively tout more than 150,000 pieces of equipment, including laundry machinery, kitchen appliances, microwaves, and macrowaves. They can special order items not in stock or tap into a stash of spare parts to repair busted apparatus. In addition to appliances, the staff can point patrons toward a fleet of mattresses and overstock items.
Since its founding in 1994, Action Computers has seen the rise and fall of many technologies. Zip drives. DOS. Dot-com companies. But through every systemic shakeup, the team has held firm in stocking up-to-date new and used hardware, as well as refurbished systems. These range from monitors and desktop towers to sleek graphics cards and RAM sticks. When the team turns its computing knowledge toward repairs and system setups, it carries a commitment to top-shelf customer service and spending one-on-one time with each client?sometimes spending more time with the customer than the device itself. Many services can be performed remotely, precluding the need for travel fees or folding a technician into a cramped shipping box. Any parts that can't be repaired or refurbished get repurposed or donated elsewhere, living up to Action Computers' motto of "We recycle technology."
