Value Statement


…is our number 1 goal!


According to Webster’s Dictionary, the word value is defined as: a fair return in goods or services for money or something exchanged. Some “quickie lube” shops attract customers because they are perceived to be faster and more convenient in today’s fast paced lifestyles. It is odd that their average oil change sales ticket is just over $100.00! How thorough are the quickie shops?
