Jay Loughman had the idea of opening his own auto shop after years of experience working in other dealerships and customers encouraging him to open his own shop.

Jay’s Automotive Services opened this past summer, offering all automotive repair services. “I do everything from oil changes and tire repairs to exhaust work and major engine work,” Loughman said.

Loughman bought the repair shop a few months ago. Its previous owner retired the same day as it sold. Since then, Loughman has been working to expand the shop.

A one-man business, Loughman says that he has plans to use the open space currently in the shop for the expansion. The plans, however, are being kept a secret as of now. “I’m not saying what it will be right now, but there is a plan for it,” he said. “It just takes time.”

In the months since opening, Jay’s Auto has seen a steady number of customers, although most people in the community are unaware of its business. Loughman said he would never want to take away customers from the other shops in the area, however. “We’re all out there for a purpose, and that’s to support our families,” he said. “I do appreciate the business that I have had.”

Jay’s Auto is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The easiest way to get an appointment is to either call the shop or simply stop by.

Prices on services vary.
