Default Heads up to all Auto Parts Suppliers and Shop Owners...

A few weeks ago the owner of S & K Muffler, Beacon Brakes, and Wear Master passed away from heart complications at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio... Today all the shops are getting shut down... 18 of them to be exact... So that means if anyone is looking for good mechanics there will be some free... Also this is a heads up to all auto part suppliers... I don't want anyone to get burned....

I might want to buy one if he is selling some shops. There is a Wear Master right by me but I thought the guy running the place was the owner, nice guy.

If you have the number to any of the techs or if they are looking for a job let me know. We are trying to hire a couple more good techs and a couple managers. It would be in Genesee county so I don't know what kind of drive they would have or if they would be interested but figured I would throw it out there.

That kinda sucks about shutting all those shops down.

Wrong....

The owner mortgage everything to the hill and took all the money out from buildings to equipment... And now the banks are taking over the buildings and everything else so the trustee for the banks can get some money back...
