New shop provides modern technology
Eccles Auto Service has spent a few months renovating, improving and modernizing the former Joe's Alignment and Brake Service into its new six-hoist shop, the business's third Dundas location.
Eccles Auto Service, with 34 years in Dundas, is expanding to a third shop across from its main 121 King St. West location.
“It’s another growth spurt,” owner Bruce Eccles said. “A more modern facility.”
The former Joe’s Alignment and Brake Service will reopen March 1 after a few months of renovations.
“We’ve incorporated some new technology,” Eccles said.
The space will provide six additional vehicle hoists but will not include customer reception. Vehicles will be dropped off and picked up at the main site and technicians working at the new shop will bring them back and forth.
Eccles' uptown location at 200 King St. W. will temporarily close in March for a few months for minor renovations and modernization.
Eccles Auto is among three finalists for the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce Mid-sized Business of the Year, with Carstar and Judy Marsales Real Estate.
“I feel like we’re in great company,” Eccles said.
