Tayshen celebrates expansion | Delta, Tayshen

Jami Taylor and Rob Shenold hosted a grand re-opening at Tayshen Automotive in Delta June 3. Food, a live radio broadcast and giveaways highlighted the celebration.

Tayshen Automotive celebrated a recent expansion, as well as its ninth anniversary, with food, a remote radio broadcast and giveaways June 3.

The auto repair business recently expanded into the building that adjoins the shop at 105 1/2 Eaton Avenue. The spacious building formerly housed the Raising Hope Thrift Store. Owners Jami Taylor and Rob Shenold explain they bought the building two years ago, with a long-range vision of expansion. When the thrift store moved to Main Street, they decided it was time to move forward with their goal to add an in-house transmission builder and expand the waiting area and service bays. Adults can access WiFi in the clean, spacious waiting area, while youngsters amuse themselves by drawing on the chalk wall.

The shop now accommodates seven lifts to get customers back on the road quickly.

Tayshen Automotive is the only AAA approved repair facility in Delta County. It has also earned the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence for its commitment to education, as evidenced by the ASE certification of staff.
