What: A new building for Checker’s Auto Body is being built at 1122 Abadie St.
Details: William Garcia, who co-owns the business with Joel Garcia and Gerardo Garcia, said the new 9,800-square-foot building will be about twice as big as the location they currently occupy at 400 W. Whitman Drive, College Place. William Garcia said the new construction will allow more room for the shop, and the reception and office areas will be upgraded. The new location also is closer to higher traffic areas.
Timeline: "Everything is running real well," Garcia said. "I’d like to be over there soon." His target is September-October.
