Appliance repair company 0800 Repair has opened its first shop in Chester Le St, creating three new jobs. Store Manager Kevin Gray said: “Big electrical appliance stores have pulled out of Chester-le-Street, so our shop with it’s knowledgeable staff will fill a gap in the market.
The shop will sell electrical appliances as well as being a drop off point for TV’s and other portable items to be repaired. In store, we can arrange home based repairs to major kitchen appliances such as washing machines, dishwashers, fridge freezers and cookers, with the service being provided by our own branded, fully criminal record checked engineers.
“The shop also displays gas boilers and 0800 Repair Gas Service division offers a 24 hour/7 day week call out service for gas and appliance repairs – offering a ‘one-stop’ shop solution for all our customers.
It’s a great time for customers to pop into the shop as we are currently offering New Year price savings and discounts on all our products and appliances.
Our staff who all live locally – have many years of electrical retail experience between them and we’ll be selling high-quality major brands at competitive prices. We will also be an authorised repair centre for our national company 0800 Repair” added Kevin.
The 0800 Repair Appliance Centre could be the first store of many around the country – if it proves a success, more could be opening around the North East in particular.
Phil Pallister, managing director of 0800 Repair’s gas services division added “We’re delighted to be opening our first shop, and we believe we can offer the people of Chester-le-Street a valuable service that they have been missing out on for some time.
We aim to be the friendly face of electrical retailing, offering excellent levels of customer service at an affordable price.”
