The main goal of this new project is to expand our operations in the Chicago and Seattle areas. Our hope is to have 5-6 stores in Seattle and 3-4 in Chicago before the end of the year.

To make that happen we had to make a hard decision to sell our Madison, WI store so we can focus on the Chicago and Seattle markets. Continue reading “JCD Repair of Madison”
