Owner of A-Z Towing creating car repair shop

The flat-roofed building that's stood at 1401 W. Kennewick Ave. since the 1950s is getting a dramatic face-lift thanks to Mike Harvey, owner of A-Z Towing and The Bug Shack in Kennewick.

He recently bought the buildin,g and Romm Construction workers are busy knocking holes in it and adding garage doors to create two vehicle repair bays.

Workers also are busy inside, Harvey said.

When the construction is done, Harvey's new business will be A-Z Auto and he will offer retail sales of car parts and used cars, and full-service repair of foreign and domestic vehicles in addition to his towing business.

In the meantime, his businesses at 601 E. Third Ave. in Kennewick, A-Z Towing and The Bug Shack, will remain open. The Bug Shack specializes in repairs to Volkswagens and other air-cooled vehicles built prior to 1990.

Harvey hopes most of the construction at the new site will be completed in March.
