Firestone Complete Auto Care, one of the largest automotive retailers in the world, has opened a new location at 1201 9th St. E. in West Fargo.
“This is a great location,” managing partner Mark Friez said. “We have been very busy.”
The full-service auto repair center quietly opened its new building — one of 2,600 Firestone locations nationwide — in mid-February, with a grand opening celebration tentatively planned for May.
“Firestone has been in downtown Fargo forever, but we’re glad to be over here in West Fargo,” Friez said. “This is such a great location, and it’ll be the cleanest shop you’ll ever see.”
The shop has been laid out to be used as efficiently as possible, and the equipment used is state-of-the-art, but Friez believes the staff is what will keep customers coming back.
“You can have the best equipment in town, but you also need the right people to run it,” Friez said. “We have 13 great employees, and service is our specialty.”
According to Friez, Firestone’s prices are very competitive and they have “probably the best warranties around.”
Firestone Complete Auto Care is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
