June Anniversaries: Lacey Has It All

062_Lacey_Image_006-300x200Championship golf courses. Five freshwater lakes. 3,700-acres of wildlife refuge. Outstanding schools. A healthy economy. And, easy access to the decision makers in Olympia, Washington’s state capitol. Lacey has it all. Heck, the south Puget Sound community even has two Oil Can Henry’s service centers!
Nine years ago, the father-and-son team of Jack and John Methven opened their first Oil Can Henry’s service center on Marvin Road S.E. in Lacey. Six months later, they opened a second center 6.5 miles to the southeast at theintersection of Yelm Highway S.E. and College Street S.E..
Both centers have built a loyal following by providing attentive service that’s quick, yet thorough. Our congratulations to Jack, John and the hard-working, trained technicians who earn drivers’ trust day in and day out. Keep up the great work!
We also salute the seven other Oil Can Henry’s centers celebrating June anniversaries:

From Our Customers: An OCD Vehicle Owner’s Dream

photo-300x225I just wanted to say how impressed I was with your company’s service.
I had never been to an Oil Can Henry’s before. Being able to chill in the truck and keep an eye on your guys via the TV monitor is an OCD vehicle owner’s dream. Wonderful, absolutely wonderful.
On top of that, the guy I dealt with, Tim, was incredibly professional, courteous and knew his stuff off the top of his head.
It was so refreshing to see.
If only you had locations in Florida, where I’m moving next month…

From Our Customers: Excellent Service!

029-Salem-Commercial_0122-300x300Excellent service!
The staff was super friendly and efficient. We found their serpentine belt service to be $100 less than at our car dealership. They even made our kids smile.
Definitely going back in the future.

Anniversaries: A Lot to Like About Grants Pass

OCH-Grants-Pass-296x300Nestled on the banks of Oregon’s storied Rogue River, Grants Pass is renowned for its unparalleled access to the great outdoors. The city is among the greatest places in America for whitewater rafting, hiking and fishing.
But there’s much more to Grants Pass. This wonderful community also delights visitors and residents alike with a vibrant, art-centered downtown area; 20 parks; and a variety of annual festivals.
Grants Pass began to develop in earnest back in 1880, when the Oregon-California Railroad was constructed through Josephine County. Timber began to fall and foundation of major industry. As the city continued to grow and leaders looked to diversify the local economy, tourism became increasingly important. Today’s historic downtown is a fun, pedestrian-friendly atmosphere.
Southern Oregon native Chris Bixler brought Oil Can Henry’s to Grants Pass 15 years ago, opening a service center at 840 N.E. E Street. Just six months later, Chris opened a second location, 104 miles to the east in Klamath Falls.
Working out of their busy service center next to the Grants Pass Shopping Center, Chris and his team of knowledgeable technicians have earned drivers’ loyalty with their quick, convenient and thorough service.
If you ever find yourself in Grants Pass or Klamath Falls and in need of vehicle maintenance you can trust, stop in at Oil Can Henry’s. Chris and his team will be more than happy to assist you with your needs.
We’re also excited to congratulate the eight other centers also celebrating April anniversaries:
