Happy 70th Anniversary, Chesaning Body Shop!
In 1946, the Chesaning Body Shop was opened by its original owners, Fordney Volkmer and Leo Delany. Father and son, Sid and Paul Rathfon, purchased the shop nearly 40 years ago and, in 1980, Paul’s brother, George, joined the family enterprise. Both Sid and Paul have passed on, leaving the Body Shop under the joint ownership of Paul’s widow, Betty, George and his wife, Dawn, who is well known locally as the manager at Dollar General for the past 8 years.
The Chesaning Body Shop currently employees a team of three hard-working individuals, including George and his long-time technician, Gary Woods, who has been with the shop since 1985. They are fully licensed and insured to handle all of your auto-body repair needs, including windshield repair and replacement, minor to major auto body and frame work, and paint. They also offer intra-state towing service and have loan vehicles available, and accept all auto insurances.
Their new web-page states: “With such a longstanding history of excellence, it would be easy to rest on our laurels and let our reputation carry us. But that wouldn’t be the Chesaning Body Shop way! We always seek to better ourselves, keeping up with new technologies and techniques, and striving to provide the best in customer service. That is why you can put your faith in us for everything from glass repair to complete collision service!”
Call for information on all of their services at 989-845-6810 or stop in to talk to George and his team at 205 N. Wood Street, Chesaning. They are happy to give estimates, explain their processes, assess your car, or give pointers on buying a new one.
The Chesaning Chamber of Commerce wishes to extend a hearty congratulations to George and his team at Chesaning Body Shop for weathering the test of time and continuing to provide excellent customer service and auto body care to the Chesaning community and surrounding area! 7 decades is certainly something to celebrate and we look forward to wishing you a happy 40th birthday as a family-owned business in 2017!
Watch for Corky the Construction Cone Around Town!
