Re-Establishing Business in Muncy
While talk on the national economy is rarely anything good these days, some local businesses are moving and expanding.
Since November, Pic Brothers Auto Sales has moved onto the old Murray Motors lot at 101 North Main Street in Muncy.
Co-proprietor Shawn Pequignot said talks to buy the long vacant dealership lot had been underway for months before the sale went through, but since then, plenty has been done to the facility with a new roof, new lifts, and remodeling inside the building.
“It is nice to be up from the creek where we were crowded and moving cars every spring,” said Pequignot. “It is a more professional looking establishment with a better display area. That is bringing a lot people into see us. We’re just trying to keep caught up!” added Pequignot.
To that end, Pic Brothers has added four full-time mechanics, bringing the company’s total to five, plus three people handling sales.
Pequignot credits hard work and lots of it with helping grow and sustain the dealership he has owned with younger brother Kevin for more than seven years.
“Plus, we stand behind everything we sell with our customer service. It is how we got a good name in this town and it certainly is a part of our success,” he said.
