“He does good work,” Wellman said of Eldon’s. “Actually, he painted a couple of my cars in high school. That kind of got me started in the trade [and] sparked my interest.”
Wellman will be the only person working out of the site, but said he would like to hire more workers in the future. His wife, Sarah, said her husband has talked about owning his own shop for as long as she’s known him.
“I’m excited for this new adventure. I know he does great work, and I know he’ll be successful,” she said. “He’s kind of a jack of all trades; he can do it all.”
Marquis Body Shop is located at 495 S Fifth St. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Wellman can be reached at 402-367-3367 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Banner-Press reached out to the previous owner, Novotny, for the story, but he declined to comment.
