There’s a certain magic when you find a place that you just know is right for you. Some people discovered it when they moved to Northeast Minneapolis. Others discover it every day at a coffee shop or a certain department store or even an auto maintenance and repair station. What is it? And why doesn’t every place have it?
At St. Anthony Mobil, we don’t know the definitive answer either. But we’ve tried to be different than an auto service or gas station chain. We’re pretty sure that it’s not any one thing that assures you that you belong in a certain store. But as consumers ourselves, here are a few that we’ve noticed.
- The staff looks happy, even if they’re very busy.
- People are talking. They talk about their cars and their lives with equal comfort.
- The staff and the customers seem to know one another…
- Yet the Minneapolis auto mechanic shop doesn’t seem like an exclusive club that’s difficult to get into.
All of this leads to an ambience that you can’t really create, one that automatically fits the neighborhood. But you can try to maintain all the little things here. You can keep a skilled, knowledgeable staff of auto mechanics and customer service people. You can make sure that they’re already part of the unique fabric of Northeast Minneapolis.
Then all you have to do for a successful Twin Cities auto service station is just keep the place orderly, and let the magic happen.
