Let's Take Thanksgiving Back

Thanksgiving banner | Babcock Auto Care

Do you remember the days when no store (except gas stations) were opening on the holidays—especially Thanksgiving and Christmas? Where have they gone? Why have decided to not only open but to encroach upon our time to be Thankful? Why are we losing the feeling of the holidays and allowing sales at the stores invade?

But maybe, just maybe, this is about to change with the announcement from the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN—the largest shopping mall in the country. You see, they are going against the grain, they are taking Thanksgiving back! The Mall of America is allowing their employees to take all of Thanksgiving off to spend with their family and friends. Bravo, Mall of America! I am sure that the sales can be had on Black Friday and you will surely be blessed for your decision to keep our day of thanks!

Auto Repair Shops in Rochester, MN and all over the country also close on Thanksgiving … though I am sure there are some in need of auto repair when they are traveling. In order to avoid this to the best of you ability, I encourage you to get all repairs and maintenance needed well before the holidays. Most people procrastinate so that means, if you wait like them, your local automotive repair facility, even in Rochester, MN, a smaller town compared to some, will be very busy taking care of all the procrastinators. Don’t get me wrong—I can be a procrastinator too! But it sure does pay to take care of vehicle repairs and maintenance as soon as they are needed—saving you valuable time needed to get other things ready.

Remember, safety is important but so are maintenance and timely repairs, so make sure these things in are in good working order as you travel the roadways locally in Rochester, MN, to the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN for Black Friday, or going to visit relatives in a different state:

  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Tires, tire rotations, balance
  • Batteries
  • Wheel Alignments
  • Check Engine Light Diagnostics
  • Electrical Diagnostics
  • Oil changes
  • Fluid flushes
  • Filters
  • Transmission issue
  • Engine problems

And everything else under the car or under the hood.

May you have a joyous Thanksgiving as you prepare your vehicle right and keep the whole day to be thankful!

Words from our clients:

Customer service was great and follow up details about my vehicle while it was in the shop were very helpful. Emails with attached pictures and details was a first for me and the shop contacted me regarding services needed rather than just fixing it and charging me. I knew everything going on from drop off until pickup. The shuttle service was also very helpful!

Babcock will forever get my service. I went in for an oil change before I left to go out of town, and Babcock made sure my trio went smoothly by finding some other issues that would have been catastrophic on a long car ride. I appreciate their thoroughness and and helpfulness.
