Great Bear Auto Repair and Auto Body has a first after being open for 78 years.
This first is having a woman run the business, her name is Audra Fordin. Fordin is a 40 year old mom with 3 kids and can change the breaks on your car. A woman in the car business is very rare, so for the past year and a half she has been teaching a free monthly workshop which is called What Women Auto Know which right teaching about 200 women on how to change a tire or how to fix a tail light. This has also helped bring in customers because last year they made $470,000 and it’s expected to make 10 or 15 percent more this year.
