Thanks from Duffy’s

Duffy’s Garage has closed. We want to thank everyone who has supported us the past 10 years. Especially you loyal customers that have stuck with us since the move to our less-than-convenient location. I can’t thank you enough for your loyalty and trust in letting us service your vehicles. It’s always been more than appreciated. I really can’t thank you enough.

Hopefully I’ll be able to help you in some way in the future with your automotive needs.

Once again, a heartfelt thank-you.
