Small town Service!

At the risk of sounding a bit like a commercial I just have to talk about one of the businesses in town here that I LOVE! There is a mechanic in town called Roger's Auto shop. We use to live across the street from this shop when we lived on HWY 99. He is a very sweet man (in a grandpa kind of way!) We have always taken our vehicles to him because he has great service, prices, and he has to be one of the most honest mechanics I have ever met! Anyway when we lived across the street I loved it because I would walk across the street and give him my keys and he would just come and get the car when he was ready for it and bring it back when he was done. Almost 4 years ago we moved to our "new" house that put us about 5 blocks from his shop. This week I was scheduled for a transmission and steering fluid flush and I had a "sick" kid home from school. So I drove up and asked if someone could come and get my car. One of the mechanics hoped in my car I drove home, pulled the kids out of the car and they took my car back to the shop. Roger called when he was done and he said he didn't want me to make my sick kid walk so he drove my car to me! I paid him at my front door and we were all done!!! I don't think you could get service like that in any large town or city!!! Gotta love small town life, small town people, and small town service! No Walmart would serve me like that!!! I didn't even pay extra!

What a great deal! I do love Monmouth. You are right Walmart wouldn't do that for you!
