Shop Talk

Top Shop Challenge: What are a couple of things you'd like to highlight that happened last month?

Last month our oldest daughter graduated from high school. It was a busy time for our family. We had to take a few half days to attend some activities her high school was having for the students and their families. Our team here at the shop really stepped up and allowed us to attend those activities.

Top Shop Challenge: Share anything your shop does for the 4th of July.

We always close on the 4th of July. But we will be open this year on Friday the 5th and Saturday (half day) the 6th. This is for all our customers who take time off during the 4th of July holiday. It is hard for people working full time to get repairs done on their vehicles. This gives them the option to get that oil change and tire rotation they have been putting off done.
