PLAINFIELD -- uBreakiFix recently opened a new store at 13511 S. Route 59 in Plainfield.

The technology repair brand provides same-day repair service of all electronics, specializing in cellphone repair and computer repair, at more than 325 locations across North America.

uBreakiFix Plainfield joins nearby locations in Naperville and Montgomery, and 14 additional brand locations across the state. It is the first location for owners Ivan and Samantha Valle, who were drawn to the company for its vision and values, which align closely with their own. Ivan Valle joins uBreakiFix after nearly a decade's work for Costco Wholesale.

"I've always been fascinated by learning what makes things tick. Even from a young age, I was often taking devices apart and putting them back together," said Valle. "I'm excited to channel that passion into a career in tech repair and look forward to serving the community with high quality parts and friendly customer service at an affordable price. We hope to be the go-to resource to meet all of the Plainfield community's tech repair needs."

uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 by millennial duo David Reiff and Justin Wetherill, a 2017 Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree. The pair later partnered with Eddie Trujillo to transition their Internet-based brand to a brick

and mortar tech repair alternative that was quick, affordable and provided a quality customer experience. Since its inception, the company has grown organically without debt, investors or consultants. uBreakiFix services all brands of electronics, offering phone screen repair, computer repair and more to consumers and businesses alike. To date, the company has completed more than 3 million repairs, including cracked screens, water damage, software issues, camera issues and most other technical problems.
