Anniversaries: Delivering Trusted Service in Gresham, Oregon

Oil Can Henry's in Gresham, Oregon
Oil Can Henry’s – Gresham, Oregon: 750 N.W. Eastman Parkway

Walter Quintin Gresham, the namesake of Oregon’s fourth largest city, boasted quite a resume. In less than 30 years, he served as:
  • An Officer in the Union Army during the Civil War;
  • Republican candidate for President (1884 and 1888);
  • United States Secretary of State;
  • United States Secretary of the Treasury;
  • United States Court of Appeals judge; and
  • United States Postmaster General.

In 1884, present day Gresham, Ore., was known as both “Camp Ground” and “Powell’s Valley”. Community leaders, lobbying for a local Post Office, petitioned to rename their town Gresham in honor of the Postmaster General. Their efforts were successful on both fronts, delivering a new name for their town and a new Post Office.
Today, Gresham delivers a comfortable quality of life for its 109,000+ residents. Downtown Gresham offers unique shopping and dining; Portland is a short 15 miles to the west; and, to the east, Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge beckon with seemingly endless, yet easily accessible scenic and outdoor recreation opportunities.
Oil Can Henry’s has been delivering trusted vehicle maintenance to Gresham residents since 2001.
Local owner/operator Charlie Schwab and his team of friendly, trained technicians have established the Oil Can Henry’s at 750 N.W. Eastman Parkway in Gresham as a popular destination for oil changes and other preventive maintenance services.
Our congratulations to Charlie and his fantastic Gresham team on 15 years of earning drivers’ trust. And a big shout out to the other five Oil Can Henry’s service centers celebrating anniversaries this month:

 
 
 

February Anniversaries: Old-Fashioned Quality in Sumner

Oil Can Henry's in Sumner, Washington
Oil Can Henry’s – Sumner, WA. 1313 Valley Avenue

Sumner, Washington is old-fashioned to the core — and it suits the charming community of 9,500 well.
“Full of old-fashioned friendliness, Sumner embodies all things Americana,” reads the state of Washington’s tourism website entry.  “Visit Main Street for shopping or stroll through Heritage Park near the historic downtown core. With the Daffodil Parade in spring, concerts in the gazebo in summer, scarecrows that come to life in fall and a bridge lighting with caroling and fireworks in winter, Sumner serves up every experience with an enthusiastic helping of old-fashioned fun.”
Sumner’s charming, old-fashioned Main Street has drawn national acclaim, too. John Larson of PBS once commented, “If you went looking for Main Street America, you’d be hard-pressed to find a prettier one than Sumner, Washington.”
This commitment to old-fashioned quality is undoubtedly why Oil Can Henry’s and Sumner are such a great fit.
We opened our Sumner service center six years ago (on February 13, 2010) and set about earning drivers’ trust with our commitment to providing old-fashioned quality they can trust. The hard work has paid off and we now happily greet repeat customers on a daily basis.
So, the next time you’re in Sumner — perhaps to enjoy a slice of rhubarb pie (after all, the area is renowned as the Rhubarb Capital of the World) — our team invites you to drop by Oil Can Henry’s and say, “Hi!”
Congratulations and an old-fashioned “Thank You” to the hard-working team of trained technicians at our Sumner center and the other five centers celebrating February anniversaries:

Keep up the great work!

From Our Customers: I Trust Them With My Car

Oil Can Henry's - Redmond, OR
Oil Can Henry’s – Redmond, OR
2184 S. Highway 97

Oil Can Henry’s – Redmond, OR:
Yes, it literally is as good as it gets. Great people. I trust them with my car.
Recently, I had a very minor problem and they made sure I got taken care of. Their customer service is indeed 5 Star.
It’s so refreshing to go to a business where they actually give a hoot about me and my car. I’m so tired of ho-hum customer service. In this day and age, it seems that customer service is getting worse in so many ways. But not at this place, they’re bucking the trend and giving FIVE STAR service all the way.

January Anniversaries: Soaring in Eagle, Idaho

Oil Can Henry's - 3088 E. State Street in Eagle, Idaho
Eagle, Idaho, is soaring.
The beautiful community of 22,000 has grown steadily as people make the move  to enjoy its wonderful quality of life.
Close to seemingly endless outdoor recreation opportunities, Eagle is also just minutes from Boise’s thriving arts,  culture and food scenes.
Oil Can Henry’s is proud to be a member of the Eagle community, and to help local drivers ensure their vehicles run better and last longer.
When our  Eagle service center (3088 E. State Street) opened on January 28, 2009, residents welcomed us with open arms. They enjoy our stay-in-your-car service and appreciate that our quick, yet thorough service gets them back on the road — and back to enjoying all that Eagle and Boise offer — fast.
The Eagle service center is one of three Oil Can Henry’s locations in Idaho; we also serve drivers in Boise and Coeur d’Alene.
Congratulations to the team of hard working, trained technicians in Eagle and to the teams at the four other Oil Can Henry’s service centers celebrating January anniversaries:

From Our Customers: A Great Experience

Oil Can Henry’s – SW Portland, OR:
Oil Can Henry's - 10030 S.W. Capitol Highway, Portland, OregonI had a great experience here this morning. Super nice people, and very efficient.
At first it was a little weird to have the oil changed while I was still in the car, but it’s actually nice to be right there for them to ask questions and explain what they’re doing as they go, rather than waiting until the end.
This will be my oil change place for as long as I’m in Portland!
