We’re Still Wired iRepair, But We Have a New Fixed Up Name!

Don’t you worry, your favorite iPhone repair shop is still here in Portland! We’re the same owners, we’ve just taken on a fresh new name and an updated look. Welcome to The Fix Hut! You can still bring us your toddler-smashed iPads, broken glass smartphones, and water damaged devices with the same confidence in quality of care.

Why the change?

Back in 2009, when we decided to open our first store front, the space was a coffee shop on Burnside. The landlords accepted us, but with the stipulations that we remain a coffee shop and we keep the named “Wired”. We developed a concept in which we would serve coffee while you waited for your repairs to be done, and thus the coffee-cup resemblance of our logo. The name Wired iRepair was born, but as it turned out, we switched gears and opened in the ActiveSpace building on NW Lovejoy St. instead. We already had our name and logo, so we ran with it.

Fast forward 7 years and today we have two additional shops in town, none of which serve coffee, and our own parents never get our name right. “How are things at iWired going?” they’ll ask and we’ll cringe. Also, we’ve accepted that we’re better at repairing iPhones then brewing a perfect espresso, so the logo needed to go.

The Fix Hut is our fresh name and we’re kicking off some new ideas for ways to make your experience an even better one. Swing by one of the shops or connect with us on Facebook to see all the new things we’re working on to serve our community better. Thank you for all your support, PDX. Keep Being Awesome!

Win Back 1/2 Your Repair Cost With The “Give Me A Break!” Contest!

It’s broken and we’re here to fix it, but how did it happen? After years of hearing stories ranging from hilarious to pitiful, from unbelievable to mundane, it seems a shame to keep it all to ourselves. Introducing the “Give Me A Break” contest!

Here’s your chance to share what happened to YOU. And if our customers think you deserve a break, we will refund you half the bill from your device repair!

It’s simple: we will collect stories submitted by our customers about what brought them in to see us and then share those stories on our Facebook page. Then, voting will begin and we will let the fine people of Portland and beyond be the judge of who deserves a break!

To Participate:

Email TheFixHut@gmail.com your short story AND a photo. Title your email “Give Me A Break!” The photo can be of your broken device, your shiny, like-new fixed one, a selfie in one of our shops, your cute new kitten, whatever you want. We will post an album of photos with the stories attached and notify you to let you that voting has begun. Please limit story to reasonable length. Whoever clocks in the highest number of “likes” by the end of the voting period will be declared winner and issued a 50% refund on their single device repair!

May the best break win!

Keep being awesome, PDX!

Eligibility: The contest will run every month and is only eligible for the repair cost of one device. To be eligible, you must have had your device fixed in one of our shops in the past 30 days in any of our 3 stores.

Voting: Voting will be based purely on the number of “Likes” associated with your story’s image on our page Facebook.com/TheFixHut. All of the previous month’s entries will be posted together, so there will be no advantage given to some stories having additional “face time”. The voting period will last one week before the winner is announced.

Refund Payment:  If you the contest, you will receive half of your repair cost back as a refund. If you paid with a credit card, you will be credited back to your card and if you paid cash you will receive a check from us in the mail. We will confirm address and payment method after the contest closes.
