Starting Monday we will be giving away gift cards to local businesses here in Dundas. We are all in this together.
It’s been said that auto repair businesses are “recession proof,” because while consumers resist buying a new car during tough economic times, they still need to fix their old one.
But the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses of all sizes seems without precedent.
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.

BUSINESS LEAVING TOWN
GET THE FACTS! DON'T BE DECEIVED!
A common myth started and supported by some new car dealers is "your vehicle must be serviced by our service department or your warranty may be void".
This statement is not only untrue, it is illegal! You have the right to have your new vehicle serviced wherever you choose.
I am asking you to service your vehicle locally. Support the businesses that keep Dundas alive and vibrant. Local business people support your children's hockey, soccer and baseball. They support local service clubs, charities and churches.
If local businesses close, your taxes will increase! We live and work in your community. "Let's keep it that way".
Thank You, Bruce Eccles!
Eccles Auto Service Inc. has factory trained technicians and the equipment to service your late model vehicle and uses filters and oil that meet or exceed manufacturer's specifications.
