An electronics repair shop will be opening on Jackson Avenue in the coming weeks.

uBreakiFix, the national repair chain, is gearing up to open at 10-46 Jackson Ave. in Long Island City. The store takes over the site that once saw Tiny You, the children’s boutique.

The repair shop fixes phones, tablets, computers, game consoles, and other devices ranging from problems like faulty batteries, water damage, broken glass, and more.

A spokesperson for uBreakiFix says the store will likely come online in 30 to 60 days. Nearly 400 uBreakiFix locations are open across the U.S. and Canada.

The owner of the children’s retail store closed the business last year and moved to Colorado. Tiny You opened on Jackson Avenue in 2013 after relocating from its original Sunnyside location, where it opened in 2010.

Yes but they are thieves that just want to charge you more or try to sell you another phone. This place is legit and does only repairs. Prices are fair & much better customer service than “Verizon on Jackson” — Read my review below about the verizon store!

“The ironic thing about this review is that these guys WERE great. Everything about my actual service would indicate a five star review. Howver, they are getting one star and a call to corporate to complain about the fact that they went into my private google account and posted the following review on my behalf in their favor. What an incredible violation of right to privacy.
Here is what they wrote about themselves: “These guys were great. They transferred my info from the old to the new phone at no charge and they also set up my new phone. Gio was very friendly and patient. I completely recommend. Bravo.”

Can they fix a an old 1950’s blender, toaster or my old Telefunken vacuum tube radio from 1940? Probably not to all. Well flew down to Bogota, Colombia last year found a place where they do fix things like this even have parts – so on my next down to South America dragging my old telefunkenwith me to get it fixed.

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder.
