My name is Clay. I'm a real estate agent in Gastonia, NC and have a beautiful family. I got to know the owner of City Body Shop from his daughter who is now my wife and mother of my two little girls. Owner Jimmy has always been a godly man, and has always gave what he had to help others, now is the time for him to receive.
City Body Shop is in Lincolnton North Carolina has been providing quality work since 1950. This has been a family owned and operated shop, ran by my father in-law. He is now in his late 70's and still runs the shop and does all the work his self. He raised his kids in that shop, and has a lot of memories there. He has considered selling the shop on several occasions, but has always backed out, because he doesn't want to see his legacy end that way. My goal is to learn the tools of the trade from the best and help him save the shop with new advertisements and a new look and hope to take it over one day to provide for my family, his daughter and grand kids. The shop could really use some updating and a facelift, but all of his hard earned savings has went to trying to keep the doors open, and giving to anyone who needs it.
Any funds raised will be used to provide a new look to the shop, inside and out. A lot of his clientele his from a earlier generation and has not been able to reach out to new business. Funds will go to advertising and events to bring in new business to continue his legacy. Equipment repairs and replacements will also be need in the future, once we are able to generate a new name in our local area. His dream was to build on what his father left him, to give his family a future, so its my duty to make it happen.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, this will be a great start, more will still be needed, including a lot of dedication from family, friends and me.
