New Spalding shop Amps 'N' Ohms opens in Francis Street




Business partners behind a new electronics repair and servicing shop in Spalding believe it will be the first in a national network of outlets.

Jay Patrick (30) and Brendon Pevreall (21) are the driving forces behind Amps ‘N’ Ohms Electronics Specialists, based in Francis Street.

What used to be a branch for long-established drycleaner and launderer Layton’s is now a place where customers can have their computers, laptops, tablets, mobile phones and games consoles repaired quickly and professionally.

Jay said: “I’ve been doing IT and technology repairs for ten years and during that time, I’ve had a few businesses around the country.

"Normally the first few weeks are a bit quiet, but we've been non-stop since we opened two weeks ago.

"We've had quite a warm welcome from our neighbours in Francis Street and five star reviews across the board from our customers so far.

"That's because our main belief is quality over quantity which means I'd rather do three repairs well, with none of them coming back, than do 50 repairs and have ten of them coming back."

The business name came from Brendon who teamed up with Jay after designing a logo for his business when they were trading independently of each other.

Brendon said: "We were trading from our homes before deciding to open the shop when the landlord offered it to us.

"We'd been looking around in Boston, Lincoln and Peterborough for a place, but where we are now is the perfect size for us to generate some income and build the business up properly."

As well as personal customers, Jay and Brendan also offer business-to-business, mailing, unlocking and battery services as well.

"We have an A-Z of services that we offer and when customers come through the door with anything electrical that's not working, we can fix it," Brendon said.

"Customer service is something that we pride ourselves on and we always try to get the job done as quickly as possible.

Jay added: "Our plan is to expand by employing local people and training them up to work under a manager.

"We want to have a brand of repair centres in the UK that operate for the benefit of our customers, not just for profit."
