Smartphone repair shop opens in Amherst

A new tech repair shop has opened at 7960 Transit Road in Amherst.

UBreakiFix specializes in same-day repair service of small electronics, particularly smartphones. It addresses cracked screens, water damage, software problems, camera issues and other tech problems.

It’s the first location in Western New York and opened late last month. The local franchisee is Lonney Krentz, a former support delivery manager for Time Warner Cable. He plans to open more locations in the near future.

The company is headquartered in Orlando, Florida. There are more than 180 stores across North America, with plans to open roughly 100 more by 2017.
