DOVER — A damaged electronic can ruin one’s entire day.

That can range from spilling a drink on the device, the device suddenly not working, or worse, a cracked phone screen.

The newly opened CPR Cell Phone Repair at 2131 S. DuPont Highway in Dover can solve those problems.

The business, which opened in July, offers professional mobile device repair services for all phones as well as tablets, gaming systems and computers.

“Everything has been great,” said Robert Zlock, owner of the CPR Dover store. “People really need our services and it’s great providing that opportunity for them.

“Not many people know that we’re open, but every month more and more people seem to be coming in.”

CPR is the largest and fastest growing retail mobile device repair franchise network in North America, said Mr. Zlock.

The company’s other Delaware store is in Middletown.

“All the stores are locally owned,” Mr. Zlock said. “Someone else owns the store in Middletown. CPR is a pretty big enterprise.

“The repairs are done by ISO certified technicians,” he said. “We offer a lifetime warranty of the devices that we repair. We stand by our work, but we want to always be there for our customers.”

Mr. Zlock said cracked cellphone screens are the most common issue.

“It’s not a good day for most people when that happens,” Mr. Zlock said. “Our specialists are trained in glass repair in addition to other common hand-held device problems, such as battery issues, home button malfunctions and water damage.”

The store also gives customers the opportunity to trade in their phones for cash or trade dollars.

“These types of services weren’t being offered in Dover,” Mr. Zlock said. “That’s why I wanted to open this business here. I was born and raised in Dover and continue to live here with my family.

“I look forward to delivering CPR’s much-needed mobile repair services to customers from Dover and the surrounding area.”
