McCOOK, Neb. Maria and Luis Lopez will celebrate the opening of their new light diesel and automotive repair business, “Lopez Service & Repair” in McCook’s Industrial Park, with a “pre-opening” open house Saturday, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Members of the public is invited to share a piece of cake and a taco with Maria, and tales of their vehicle’s woes with Luis, whose shop will officially open for appointments Monday, April 1.
After the completion of the steel building, the concrete and the electrical work, Maria and Luis finished the remainder of the shop’s interior themselves. “We’ve put our blood, sweat and tears into our shop. It’s been a journey now it’s done, and we’re ready to work,” Maria said.
The repair shop will offer bumper-to-bumper automotive service, in addition to light-duty diesel and forklift repair. Lopez Service & Repair is located at #1 Industrial Park Drive, east of Valmont, in the brilliant blue and white shop tucked beside the pine trees on South Street/Ravenswood Road.
Call Maria for appointments, (308) 777-0077. The couple, who speak Spanish, moved last year from Denver to McCook with their four children and two dogs.
Maria said, “We’re very excited and happy to be part of the McCook community.”
