Baker’s Collision Repair will host an Open House Oct. 5

Baker’s Collision Repair Specialists Inc., a collision repair facility located in Mansfield, Ohio, will host an Open House to celebrate "60 Years in Business" on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Baker’s has been in operation by family members since it was founded by Mervin and Esther Baker in the fall of 1953. Starting out in a two-car garage on Snyder Street in Mansfield, it has now expanded to its current 40-stall facility that has been located on 5th Avenue since 1956.

"The Baker and Powell families and all of the staff extend an invitation to the public to attend and join in the celebration," said a company spokesperson. "This day is to honor all of our generations of customers that have made it possible for us to continue to be of service to them."

Complimentary hot dogs and bratwurst, chips and soft drinks will be served to attendees. There will be facility tours, displays of community projects and door prize giveaways, including an iPad as a grand prize. In addition, Baker's has partnered with Sherwin-Williams to showcase the No. 16 Greg Biffle Stock Car at the shop.
