Geebo Device Repair – My Halifax – Things To Do In Halifax, Nova Scotia

Good Morning Guys For this weeks My Halifax we are going to visit a guy I know I met him 7 years ago we worked together and his was about to go to University but he started a Business from his Grandmothers basement and then he ended up dropping out of University to grow that into a fully fledged business and he has 4 stores now and he is just a really inspirational guy and since we spent so much time with the Chamber of Commerce and I saw other people like that I just thought it would be cool to tell you guys his story so today's My Halifax we are going to Geebo Phone Repair I think I said that name totally wrong but tha'ts what its called the thing that always kind of impressed me was that Nic would have been less that 20 or in his early 20's when he started his first store and here he is with multiple stores and that a place that is 100% home grown that is right here in Halifax he is hiring other people and bringing job opportunities to the area and when you think about someone that young with the ambition to do that and help other people as well it seems so impressive and I am really excited to see him because I haven't seen Nic for we spoke on the phone a couple of years ago but I haven't seen him for like 5 years so I'm pretty excited to see his set up and see what he is doing Hi Nic how are you man how is it going nice to see you you as well so I brought My Halifax with me because you would be a good business to feature on our vlog and I just thought for anyone that hasn't met Geebo what do you guys do? Awesome, no that you for asking me we do phone repairs kind of plain and simple but we do a bunch other stuff too we phones tablets computers we now are doing a thing now where we will even go to people houses and work on there computers there we will even mount there TV's if they can't do it set up their TV's Basically anything that is kind of in the IT field we can handle but the phones the computers and the tablets are like 99% of what we do now as I was telling these guys you started when you were like 20 yes so I've been fixing phones for a while but we I started realizing that almost everybody has a phone or 2 of them that's when I decided I really needed to put all my efforts into this company so when I was 20 about 4 years ago I dropped out of school I stopped having a side job I just started doing phone repairs 24-7 I actually advertised 24-7 So I had Kijiji ads that was like the best way to advertise back then my ads literally said I will fix your phone 24-7 so it even got to the point where people were calling me like 3 in the morning and I was giving them a beer out of my fridge when they were coming back from the bar or stuff like that it was really cool and I think that's what separated me from the other guys which allowed me to grow a little bit faster is because I was constantly working like I wasn't going out to the bars with my buddies at 10 I was kind of giving up my childhood well I'm still a child he's a man child now I'm a man child I was giving up all those fun things because I saw that it would eventually turn into this and I enjoyed doing it too like I like fixing phones I did it out of my Grandmothers basement so I was rolling out of bed going on my desk throwing on suits like I would just watch TV shows while I would have the phones on the right hand side of me and every-time a customer would come in they would sit on my grand mothers antique yellow couch from like the 1800's while my cat would run over and sit next to them so it was a really cool set up like I really liked it Now we have 5 locations we are the largest Phone and computer repair company in Atlantic Canada we are still growing and we are starting to get down some pretty big contracts with the local businesses so we definitely made a big step from Grandma's basement to where we are today and a lot more going on now but it's been a fun trip up here So to me it's pretty cool when you think about it that for how young Nic was basically he's got to where he is with his 5 stores because basically I am going to work 24-7 and I'm going to go as hard as I can and basically provide a service that no one else is proving and I think when you look at some of the local businessess here in Halifax that's the kind of thing that has set them a part they are prepared to do what ever there customers need them to do in order to keep them satisfied and I think that is what is so unique about Halifax is when your a success business it's the customer comes first and it should never not be that but that kind of like that experience you get from dealing with someone local is that they know your name and they actually care about you although the funniest part of Nic's story was that he said Kijiji was the best way to advertise 4 years ago so I don't know about you guys but I know that when I have had my phone repaired It has been sent away and I've never seen it and I need a loner the nice thing with these guys is they will actually fix it in store for you so at least you know where it is at all times You know when I knew you had made it when one of your rivals posted well match any price for someone to repair your phone unless your working from grandmothers basement Yeah so that post was probably I said that was about 4 and half years ago maybe five years ago that post was done actually because I guess a lot of people were calling in to one of my competitors we wont name who and they were trying to get a price quote done because they were advertising they would match anybodys prices I had the best prices so he specifically put in his ads like that were on Kijjiji there were also doing Facebook ads and on their website they had right in their ad at the very bottom and they highlighted it so they had their entire ad and then they highlight the bottom portion of it and then they put we will match any competitors price unless you operate out of your grandmothers basment so I don't know if some people would have got offended by that but I lost it laughing I was like oh my god this is so funny so I took a screen shot of the ad and I posted it on my personal Facebook I think I got 250 comments it got like 100 shares it got like a tones of people started liking and commenting and posting and sharing it because it was actually hilarious and people were commenting things like well this means you've made it when one of your competitors is specifically calling you out you know your doing something right this is just phone abuse at this point so the other cool thing is nic is in his mid 20's and he's got 5 stores he's hiring 15 people and when you think about how that that helps a city like Halifax where you've got local businesses being sold by someone so young so driven and his goal is to keep growing and keep providing this great service and that's employing other people too that has a knock on effect that's why support local is so important to us because without people like Nic this store wouldn't be here then his other 5 stores wouldn't be here and there wouldn't be 15 people that were employed and you know that's a big deal it's so cool that A it's not because Nic's my friend it's just because I'm really impressed with how driven he is and what he's done and how he is going toe to toe with some really big competitors and he is representing Halifax and I think that is amazing So I am going to leave Nic to get back to fixing this phone because I am probably holding him up but where can the guys find you? In metro we have 4 locations the one we are in today which is 6331 Lady Hammond which is right by the Windsor street exchange we have one downtown Halifax which is on Queen Street if anybody knows the sobeys is on queen street right next to it – we are actually the last business on the right on Queen Street We have one in Dartmouth that's the our OG the original Store that we had That was originally Nic Phone repair we actually only just changed the sign probably like 6 – 8 months ago so we have been Geebo for like 3 years but Nic's Mobile Phone Repair was the the original everybody always remembered Nic's and everyone is always like Where is Nic or is that Geebo has someone bought him out or something like that so we kept Nic's for a while but that is on the corner of Portland and Gaston Road and oh Clayton Park we just opened one up over there it's Farnham Gate Ridge put the Plaza we are in because its a strip mall is called Rockingham Ridge but that is where the 4th store is at and one in Cape Breton in Sydney right in the down Town on Charlotte Street Nic is slowly taking over the universe I'm trying trying Thank you very much for having me man awesome no thank you for asking me this is awesome So I have to say it was A really good to see Nic again and B just to see how driven he is and you know we talked a lot about you know local businesses and supporting Local and you know it's just really nice to see a business that from a start up really was based out of Halifax and it's doing really and he's got some big plans in the pipe line and I just think that is really cool and that's more of the stuff that Halifax needs and anything we can do to support local we are a big fan of so definitely come down and check Geebo Out and reach out to Nic and he will definitely take care of you and any of your electrical products so that is the end of this weeks My Halifax Thanks for watching and thank you to Nic for agreeing to be in the Vlog and go to his website or we will link it in the description below so you can go and check him out if there is anywhere you think we can make a video please let use know in the comments below thank you for Liking, Commenting, and subscribing to this Youtube channel and we will see you next week becauseoh is that gonna I don't know if that ding was gonna No that's ok ooops!
