Owner Matt Lachowitzer said the service center at 1234 1st Ave. N. has been deemed a total loss. His staff is currently in the process of moving everything out so demolition can begin. He said he plans to rebuild and is currently working with an architect to design a new location that will give customers the best experience possible. If all goes well, he hopes to be back at the original site by March.
Lachowitzer thanked his customers for their patience and loyalty.
"We would like to first thank our customers who continued to come to us even though we were not in Moorhead anymore and for how many phone calls and genuine care and support that was given to us," he said. "Without them, we don't exist, so thank you."
In addition to the temporary Moorhead location, Matt's Automotive operates service centers at 1150 43 1/2 St. S. and 1617 32nd Ave. S. and a collision center at 6108 53rd Ave. S., all in Fargo, ND.
The business is hosting a rock concert in celebration of ten years in business June 22 at the 1150 43 1/2 St. S. location. The show will feature music from Warrant, Slaughter and Unleashed.
