Walls were knocked down, a new lighting system was fitted and ‘state-of-the-art machinery’ was installed, according to company directors Neil and Chris Day.

The pair also run LA Exchange, which was formerly based at the repair shop site but is now at their premises in New Road, Littlehampton, as the online side of the business takes off.

The father-and-son combo said they were 'very excited' about the refurbishment, and that their goal was to dispel the myths surrounding repair shops.

Chris, 23, said: “People don’t go to repair shops because they are scared they will get a shoddy repair job.

“If it is done properly, you don’t have to spend hundreds of pounds to fix your phone or tablet – you can go to a reputable company that will fix it for a fraction of the price.”

Among the special features of the repair shop is a recycling plant and training pods which allow people to learn how to use tablets and phones under supervision – something older customers have found useful, Chris and Neil said.
