Mr. Appliance Excels Amidst a Pandemic

Mr. Appliance Excels Amidst a Pandemic

Dsc 5929 Scaled

Mr. Appliance of Aberdeen, Watertown, and Brookings began business in April 2020 and operates as an in-home appliance repair and service on all makes and models.

Cory and Rebecca Barber, the owners of Mr. Appliance, recognized a business opportunity when they opened at the beginning of the global pandemic. People sought to repair their older appliances rather than replace them, most likely due to the limited availability of appliances caused by factory shutdowns.

Cory is fully equipped to tackle any repair service after serving almost nine years as an electronics technician in the US Naval Nuclear program and subsequently completing his engineering degree. With several years of experience in engineering and computer systems management, Cory understands the complex microprocessors within many of the modern appliances.

Mr. Appliance offers a “Job Satisfaction” guarantee, and the technicians are trained and dedicated to doing the job accurately and efficiently.

According to Cory, most of the time, people think that they must replace an appliance once it stops working, but more often than not, appliances can be restored for less than half the replacement cost.

Starting a new business may seem unattainable, especially when facing a global pandemic, but that never stopped Cory and Rebecca. Mr. Appliance offers competitive services, and the customer testimonies are glowing with customer service satisfaction. // – Josie Clemens
