Launching Store-in-Store Program…..
On May 1st, Mobile Klinik, the fast-growing professional smartphone and tablet repair chain, announced a multi-store program to open stores inside select Walmart Supercentres across the country. The store-in-store program will begin with Mobile Klinik's 50th location, scheduled to open mid-May inside the Scarborough West Walmart in Toronto. Units in Supercentres in Airdrie in Alberta, in London and Oshawa in Southern Ontario and in Fredericton in New Brunswick are scheduled. The in-store locations will offer the same services offered at other Mobile Klinik Professional Smartphone Repair locations, including while-you-wait smartphone and tablet repair and care of almost all makes and models of devices and a broad range of certified pre-owned phones. There is also a large selection of accessories, including chargers, cases, screen protectors and headphones. Mobile Klinik continues to expand its centre and mall store platform and is exploring all regions of Canada. In addition to Superstore openings, locations are scheduled to open units shortly in North Toronto, Mississauga and in Regina. While most stores will be corporately-owned, franchise opportunities exist in areas such as Northern Ontario and the British Columbia Interior. Growth plans continue to focus on in-line and kiosk sites with convenient access in malls and mixed-use projects. The size required is in a 350 to 500 square-foot range. Greg Cardwell is Director, Real Estate and Janine Maginniss at Oberfeld Snowcap handles the chain’s site selection across Canada. Andy Goodman at Frantel Canada continues to handle the franchise search.
