RepairClinic.com® Focuses on Helping Customers and Sets New Sales Record, Despite Crumbling Michigan Economy

December 17, 2009—Canton, MI—In a Michigan economy that is setting records of its own, Repairclinic.com has set a very different kind of record…a sales record.  According to Larry Beach, RepairClinic CEO, “In November, the company posted its highest monthly sales numbers ever, representing an increase of more than 15% over November 2008. In this economy, especially in Michigan, we are very proud of what we’ve accomplished as a company.  The credit goes to our more than 125 employees, many of whom put in extra hours over the last several months to help make this possible; we also believe it to be related to our offer of free repair help on our website.”

Vision to Help Others
Chris Hall, RepairClinic President, who partnered with Larry Beach to found the company in 1999, adds, “when we started this company, our personal vision was to help people fix their own appliances, so they could save money and experience the personal satisfaction that comes from doing something with their own two hands” Selling the appliance parts they needed to get the job done was how they were able to reach those people. The extensive free repair content on the website along with the highly-trained RepairGurus help thousands of people with their appliance repairs every month.

Recession Provided More Opportunity to Help
No one could have predicted that the U.S. (or even worse, Michigan) economy would take a dramatic downturn over the last couple of years. This recession has provided even more opportunities for RepairClinic to help those in need as more consumers have become interested in saving money than ever before.

Passing On the Prosperity
The company has been diligent in passing on its prosperity to some local charities. In the last year, RepairClinic.com has supported several organizations both with employee volunteers and through donations, including: Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels, American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, Michigan’s Make a Wish Foundation, Hope Clinic, and others.
