Local businesses expand services

On-site cell phone and tablet repair now available at Hope-ComTech

Michael and Donna Kropp now offer cell phone accessories at Hope-ComTech on Wallace Street.

Michael and Donna Kropp are in the process of transforming their businesses into a one-stop shop.

The owners of Hope-SignCrafters and Hope-ComTech have recently added several new options to their offered services since moving into a larger retail space on Wallace Street.

“We just like to keep growing to accommodate our community,” said Donna. “We understand who the client is and we like to cater to that. It’s about being friendly, approachable, and having a can-do attitude.”

Hope-ComTech now provides on-site cell phone and tablet repair, cell phone unlocking, and variety of cell phone accessories. If they don’t have a particular product in-store, it can be specially ordered for customers. The company is also looking into pay-as-you-go cell phone SIM cards.

“We noticed there was a lack of (these services) in the community and people were asking for them and there wasn’t anywhere to send them locally,” said Donna. “It’s a good fit for us to have computer products and cellular products.”

Hope-ComTech currently sells digital cameras and will soon be offering warranty repairs. The business will also be selling and renting handheld GPS devices by March 1, as well as avalanche beacons and backpacks for outdoor enthusiasts.

“The area we live in is mountainous and people like to hike, ski and snowmobile. We’ve got it all in Hope and we need to offer people those things,” said Donna.

As for Hope-SignCrafters, the Kropp’s have added business cards, brochures, copies and fax to their product list. In addition to competitive pricing, Donna said they can now offer customers a package deal when it comes to signage and graphics.
