During the Fairfax store's grand opening Oct. 13, Craftsman Auto Care held a Cars & Coffee community car show, offered shop tours and provided information on hybrid and electric vehicle service.
The company said it donated the car show entry fees to Final Salute, a charity which provides housing for homeless women veterans.
Both Craftsman locations feature state-of-the-art repair equipment, including diagnostic tools, alignment machines, tire changers and balancers, as well as ASE-certified Master technicians, the dealership said.
The dealership also offers free shuttle service, family- and pet-friendly showrooms, online night-drop forms and three-year/36,000-mile warranties.
Both shops are certified as AskPatty Female-Friendly to attract and retain women customers. They offer "Show 'n Tell Service," which includes digital photo inspections that technicians can send customers via text message along with service recommendations.
The Currys originally founded Curry's Auto Service in 1997, which grew into one of the largest independent auto repair chains in the Washington, D.C., metro area, with nine shops across Northern Virginia and one in Maryland.
They sold the dealership in 2013 to Monro Inc. and then founded The Hybrid Shop, a franchise program that provided vehicle repair shops with training and equipment to service electric and hybrid vehicles, and later sold it in 2017.
Upon opening his first Craftsman store, Mr. Curry said, “Craftsman Auto Care is the culmination of our vision for top-of-the-line services and technology for people who want the very best experience in the auto repair market at a fair price.”
