local small appliance repair exists!!

July 13, 2007

An acquaintance of mine read my bemoaning our loss of being able to repair products and clued me in to what looks like a gem of a little company, Layton’s Small Appliance Repair in Kitchener. (Thanks, Rachael!) The first paragraph on their website is music to my ears:

“Don’t throw away quality small appliances, when you can repair them or buy that broken part for the price on the tax on a new one!”

When I get a chance I fully intend on checking out this shop myself. If you need something repaired, check them out and let me know how it goes!

    Everything your friend indicated about Layton’s is true–and then some.

    Even though I live 80 kms from Layton’s in Kitchener, they’re the people I patronize for repairs and replacement parts for my shaver–now almost as old as I am.

    Layton’s is a small but well-equipped and competent family business.

    Their phone number is 519.745.3514.

    They will not disappoint.

    Update to my March 14, 2009 endorsement of Layton’s Appliance Store:

    This summer I went to the Kitchener, Ontario location where Layton’s had served me for many years and found another business located there.

    Upon inquiring, I was told that the Layton family moved to British Columbia.

    They had probably moved prior to my previous email endorsement.

    Sorry about that.

    We (my husband and father mostly) used Layton’s for years. Do you know anywhere else to get shavers fixed in the Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge/Guelph area?

    After I found that Layton’s had closed up shop, I decided to follow the advice of my younger brother, who pointed out that a better and less costly alternative to repairing my shaver was to watch for periodic sales of new shavers at stores like Future Shop, Best Buy, and Sears.

    Realizing that I had spent about $60 each time to replace the heads, as well as other significant amounts to replace a couple of other parts that eventually needed replacing, I watched the ads and, after a few weeks, found a Philips shaver to my liking for $60.

    Interestingly, I could have chosen an older style Philips shaver similar to mine for $40 at one point.

    And it is nice to have a new shaver–even for someone as stuck in a rut as I was.

    Sometimes it’s definitely better to repair. Save money and time.

    It’s actually very complicated in this active life to listen news on TV, thus I simply
    use world wide web for that reason, and obtain the newest information.
