Speedy’s Oil, Lube and Detailing opens its doors for business
By Liz Hellmann
Speedy’s Oil, Lube and Detailing opened its doors in Montrose this month.
The building, located on the south side of Highway 12 in Montrose, across from the new Citizen State Bank, is leased by store owner Sara Purinton, and managed by her husband, Ken Purinton.
The couple lives in Buffalo and decided to start the business so Ken could work for himself.
They offer a variety of services including complete car cleaning, oil lube, and small mechanic repair.
The shop is unique because of the type of customer service they provide, he said.
“We are a small shop, open on Sundays, and there isn’t any hidden cost,” Ken said.
Currently, Ken is the store’s main mechanic, and handles all of the repairs. Working on cars has been one of his hobbies since he was a boy.
He has 10 years of experience working for different shops, such as Valvoline and car dealership shops. Ken now enjoys working for himself and being able to provide his customers with consistently good service.
“Our rates are reasonable, with quality work,” Ken said. Because the store is small and locally owned, they also offer no wait service.
Besides oil lube and small mechanic repair, the shop also sells oil. In the future, they are also looking to expand by adding air filters and window washer blades for sale.
The shop is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., except for Sundays when it closes at six.
Coupled with its long hours and quality work at a fair price, Speedy’s Oil, Lube and Detailing aims to stay true to its name by serving the people of Montrose and the surrounding areas, keeping their cars in ship shape.
