Norman, OK (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
Christian Brothers Automotive, the automotive repair shop founded on a commitment to honesty and integrity, opened a new location last week situated at 3050 Yarbrough Way in Norman, Oklahoma.
Located on Interstate Drive on the east side of I-35, just north of the Rock Creek overpass between Tecumseh and Robinson, the nearly 5,000 square-foot location includes nine service bays, as well as an upscale lobby that features leather couches, decorative lighting, artwork and hardwood floors. Christian Brothers also offers a new courtesy shuttle vehicle to transport you to and from home or work while your vehicle is being serviced. Waiting customers enjoy free Wi-Fi, coffee and bottled water in the quiet lobby.
”Kim and I are excited about the opportunity to serve our neighbors, not just through automotive repair, but through teaming up with our schools and local businesses to help them thrive,” said Shane Guldi, who owns the new shop with his wife Kim. “Yes we repair vehicles with the latest equipment and with excellence - that's what we do; but we want to be a light to our community - that's who we are. We are here for the long haul and look forward to building lasting relationships with people around us.”
Christian Brothers Automotive provides full-service automotive diagnostic testing and evaluation, maintenance programs and repair work for all domestic and foreign vehicles at each of their locations. All Christian Brothers Automotive facilities are staffed with automotive service excellence (ASE) certified technicians.
Shane was born in Florida, and Kim in Arkansas and both spent most of their early years in Arkansas. Shane received a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from the University of Arkansas and then later earned a Master of Christian Education from Nazarene Theological Seminary. They moved to Bethany 12 years ago to serve as Elementary Pastor at Bethany First Church of the Nazarene. The Guldis love life in Oklahoma and were very excited when a franchise opportunity became available in Norman. Shane's father was a race car driver and an auto mechanic and Shane spent many years working with his dad and driving the cars and feels that all of his lifelong experiences have perfectly prepared him to serve the community with their Christian Brothers automotive shop. The Guldis have been married for 17 years and have four daughters: Emma, 14; Claire, 11; Alayna, 9; and Gianna, 7.
