uBreakiFix Set to Cut Ribbon in Newport Plaza

Ubreakifix Expands Kentucky Footprint With Campbell County Store


Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix Newport, on July 5 at 52 Carothers Road and will cut the ribbon for their grand opening this Saturday, July 13.

The space formerly housed Homan Chiropractic. Beaumont, Texas-based Albanese Cormier Holdings acquired Newport Shopping Center and Newport Plaza in January 2018 and has since started adding new tenants.


Newport Plaza at 82 Carothers Road is 161,734 square feet of retail, anchored by Fresh Thyme, Planet Fitness, Dollar Tree, and Verizon Wireless. Newport Shopping Center is 264,196 square feet of retail at 1727 Monmouth Street with offerings like ACE Hardware, Aaron's, Defender Direct, Dollar General, Family Dollar, and Taco Bell.

uBreakiFix services anything with a power button, including smartphones, game consoles, tablets, computers, drones, hoverboards, and everything in between, completing more than 5 million repairs.

While common fixes include cracked screens, software issues, and camera issues, the brand offers support for most technical problems on any electronic device, regardless of make or model.

uBreakiFix Newport is the second location for Chris and Victoria Conlin, who also own a store in Florence, Kentucky.

“As northern Kentucky natives, we could not love the Newport area more,” Chris Conlin said. “We are thrilled to offer top-of-the-line repairs to this growing neighborhood and feel confident that our services will exceed the needs of our customers. It’s our joy to introduce a company like uBreakiFix to our favorite community.”

uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 by duo Justin Wetherill and David Reiff. In 2018, Wetherill was inducted into the Forbes Technology Council, and uBreakiFix earned a top spot on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® list, ranking #18 overall, #1 in the Electronics Repair category, and #1 on the Top New Franchises list.



uBreakiFix has more than 500 locations open across the U.S. and Canada. The brand opened nearly 130 new stores in 2018 and plans to increase growth in 2019.
