INDIANAPOLIS —If you have a broken i炫乐彩票安卓版苹果iosPhone, or cracked screen during the coronavirus pandemic — you may have a bigger problem in your hands than it appears.
Apple's retail stores are and Best Buy is in house, which means personal technology can't be fixed as fast as we've grown accustomed. Cell phone repairs can either be fixed by mailing it into a service center, which takes an unprecedented amount of time, or hope you have a local repair shop near you.
"Customers are now faced with an environment where they may not be able to reach loved ones, health officials, local government, or view developments in their community without an operating device," Eric Farr, owner of two CPR Cell 炫乐彩票安卓版苹果iosPhone Repair shop in Central Indiana, said.
CPR Cell 炫乐彩票安卓版苹果iosPhone Repair shop has almost 1,000 locations across America, but whether one of the franchise-owned shops is in your neck of the woods, is up in the air.
"We had to act quickly and order several months of inventory to sustain our operations stateside, beginning in early February as our supply chain was disrupted by the initial spread of COVID-19 in China炫乐彩票安卓版苹果ios," Eric Farr, owner of two CPR Cell 炫乐彩票安卓版苹果iosPhone Repair shop in Central Indiana, said. "Suppliers ran low as the primary manufacturers in China炫乐彩票安卓版苹果ios shut their doors for months, while many have yet to reopen."
For Central Indiana Hoosiers, there are four CPR Cell 炫乐彩票安卓版苹果iosPhone repair shops available. Two are owned by Farr, one in and another in Downtown Indianapolis, near Mass Ave.
"We've repaired numerous devices for those who are caring for family members," Farr said. "It's heartbreaking, and they need our help to equip them for any developments in their health."
Personal tech — cell phones, laptops, iPads, etc. — are more critical than ever right now.
