(Port Angeles) – A local automotive shop celebrates a big birthday today.
Murray Motors in Port Angeles marks 80 years in business.
The locally-owned, family business has had to undergo a lot of changes since it started as a car dealership in Port Angeles.
Five years ago, Murray Motors lost its Chrysler dealership, when the automaker shuttered hundreds of dealerships across the county in a bankruptcy move.
That knocked Murray Motors out of the new car business and left Mark Murray left holding inventory that had to be liquidated in less than a month.
Murray continues to sell used vehicles and services all makes and models. The company has also become a Car Quest Auto Parts dealer.
At noon today, Murray invites the public to stop by the store at 302 East First Street for cake and beverages.
The Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce awarded Murray Motors it's business of the month award for April in honor of the Murray family's commitment and longevity in the Port Angeles community.
