Downtown Greenville has a pair of fresh faces standing by to fix your phone, tablet, or game system.
Ryan Wintrow and Trevor Brumbaugh opened iSelect Cellular Solutions in downtown Greenville on November 4th, 2017. The two are no strangers to running a business, however. Some may remember Go Go Gamers, a business created by Wintrow and managed by Brumbaugh. The store was opened by Wintrow in 2014 when he was just 17 years old.
The store offered used video games and gaming systems as well as phone repairs, but Wintrow wanted to shift his business model to focus on technology repair services. Repairing broken phones and game systems is something he took an interest in when he was young and it is a skill he taught himself and improved upon over the years. Wintrow is now imparting that knowledge to Brumbaugh as the two work side by side.
While Ryan was the proprietor of Go Go Gamers, it was actually Trevor Brumbaugh’s suggestion that led to the opening of iSelect Cellular Solutions.
“I was previously working in a factory job but knew I wanted to do something different,” said Brumbaugh. “I texted Ryan one day about starting a business specifically for repairs and we came up with the plans from there. He [Ryan] actually already had the name picked out!”
The two began developing the business model in August of this year and opened their storefront location about three months later. They credit the quick opening of the business to Wintrow’s foresight and previous business experience.
“Because I already had the name picked out and licensed with the state it made the process a lot quicker,” said Wintrow. Brumbaugh added, “He also had a lot of prior knowledge on the paperwork and procedures involved since he’s opened up a business before. That saves a lot of time.”
Trevor and Ryan were also grateful for the assistance of Eric Brown of EB Real Estate in finding the location for the store and getting moved in quickly.
“It is great to see young entrepreneurs in Darke County opening local small businesses,” said Brown. “iSelect Cellular is providing a service that was previously not available in Darke County. I hope the public will patronize and embrace this small business, as Ryan has already established himself within the community through his past business experience. The entire EB Real Estate team wishes Ryan and Trevor all the best!”
The business, located at 109 E. 3rd St, specializes in phone, tablet, and game system repairs. They can replace cracked screens, fix broken charging ports, help with minor software bugs, and much more.
Wintrow believes what sets them apart from a chain store is the fact that they keep things local.
“A lot of the larger phone stores will ship off your items for repair. You drop it off to them and they send it away and you’re left without your item. We do everything here in house. If it’s a minor problem you can either wait here while we fix it for you, or drop it off and come get it later in the day. Most repairs can be done within an hour or two.”
iSelect Cellular Solutions also uses Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or OEM grade parts, so you know your device is receiving the highest quality repair parts. They also offer a lifetime warranty on their repairs and have screen protectors and phone cases available for purchase. They are proud to offer a standing 15% discount for uniformed service customers.
The store hours are Monday-Thursday & Saturday 11 am - 5 pm and Friday 11 am - 6 pm. The store is located at 109 E. 3rd St, right behind The Blue Bow Boutique.
