I started my business in 1970 at City Line and Haverford Rd, I had no idea how hard life would be for the next six years! My contract required that I be open for 24 hours a day. I stayed true to that, even if I had to work the third shift (the night man!). Many times, we were short staffed – meaning no days off, and way too many 36-hour shifts. It all took a toll on me. I decided to shut the lights at night (open 24 hours is way too much) and see who would call and tell me I'm in violation of my contract. No one ever called. Eventually, I called the district manager told him he could have the station back, I'm closing at 11pm. A few weeks later he came by with the amended contract.
Fast-forward ten years, it is now 1980, and I was given a plaque for 10 years of excellence, and a letter because the Shell Co. was leaving the east coast, and the station was not their property. I was given 10 months to find a place to put my business. The property owner had already had a lease with 7 /11. I had found a shop a mile and a quarter from the Shell. In September 1981, I opened Wynnewood Park Service Center with my business partner at the time.
In the next 40 years, life was great! I had some rough times - a few medical operations – owned and operated two more businesses, but at the end of it all - I'm still here, just me! I love my work, and I enjoy going to work everyday. I have three great technicians, 5 lifts, and lots of high-tech equipment. And if that doesn’t sell you on us - we also have coffee, dog biscuits and local shuttle! So please – stop in! Grab a cup of Joe! And feel free to just say hello!
