EXCUSE THEIR DUST
The construction project at Les Schwab Tires in Quincy is a new building that will house the alignment center. It will feature four bays inside and two outside to accommodate larger pickups and motor homes. The need to increase the size of the service department is a direct result of needing more space for their very successful lube and oil center, which this move will give them. Co-owner Ron Horton (those of us in the know, know his wife Stephanie really runs the business!) says the work should be completed this fall, but adds there will be no interruption to service while the work is in progress.
