Connecting Point’s BIG MOVE 2017: On February 6th, you’ll find us at a great new location!

McAndrews Marketplace, E. McAndrews Road, Medford Oregon

Connecting Point's new location - 1251 E. McAndrews Road, Medford OR

On Monday, February 6th, we’ll be throwing open the doors to a beautiful new location: 1251 E. McAndrews Road, Suite 114, Medford.

That’s in the McAndrews Marketplace plaza, where we share suites with other fine businesses and institutions like Wayback Burgers, Golf Etc., Cicily’s Pastaria & GrillUmpqua Bank, De & Co. Salon, the Armed Forces Career Center, David’s Bridal, See’s Candies, and Mucho Gusto Mexican Restaurant. If you’re coming via Biddle Road, the easiest way to get to us is through the Toys ‘R’ Us parking lot. (McAndrews Plaza is kind of behind/adjacent to it.)

PLEASE NOTE: We will be closed Sunday, February 5th to facilitate the BIG MOVE. We expect to be open on time (9am) Monday morning at our new location, but we ask for a little understanding if things are a bit…um, chaotic. One thing to be aware of: service repair turnaround times will likely increase, perhaps as long as nine business days. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience during this transitional period.

The address may change, but everything else – telephone numbers, email addresses, store hours, spectacular service and support – will remain the same. We invite you to come check out the new place. Any repairs you have in Connecting Point SERVICE will be automatically moved to the new location.

McAndrews Road is just a few blocks away from our current Stevens Street address. Here’s a map showing the new location, just a few short blocks from our current store on Stevens Street:
