At St. Anthony Mobil, we’re proud of our nearly three decades as a full-service auto station in Northeast Minneapolis. However, though our history is important, it’s not really the point.
Many people who are old enough to remember a full-service gas station view it as a symbol of customer service in America. Almost all of these stations have long since given up the idea of an attendant actually coming out to wash your windshield, check your oil and put gas in your car.
At the same time, the world really has changed. In NE Minneapolis and everywhere else, drivers value speed and convenience. They believe that attentive service takes too much time.
Yet we continue to value qualities like the knowledge of our long-time auto technicians, and the fact that you can get to know them because they’ll be here the next time you stop in. We will pick you up or drop you off while your car is being serviced. Our courtesy car service is free. And yes, if you prefer, we will still come out and put the gas in your car for you.
A throwback to the past? Not really.
As a long-standing auto service business, we understand more than most businesses how much people depend on their cars to maintain their lives. In any other service or profession, consumers expect things to be done right and done fast. So we feel we’re just meeting that standard for our friends and neighbors in New Brighton, St. Anthony, Columbia Heights the area surrounding NE Minneapolis.
Some people say that makes us a stronger member of our local community, and we feel that this is even more appropriate, and important, than ever.
