Roemer’s Muffler and Brake Shop under new ownership
Roemer’s Muffler and Brake Shop, 208 S. Third Street (Northland Drive) in Sand Lake, is under new ownership. The shop, which was established in 1992, is now owned by Aaron James Simons. One of the changes that Simons made is that they now offer more services—they do most general repairs, including mufflers, exhaust, custom pipe bending, brakes, etc.
“We are the best exhaust shop from Grand Rapids to Big Rapids,” said Simons.
He feels his edge over the competition is the ability to pass on savings through low overhead. “When times get lean, the fat gets cut,” he said.
Simons said future plans include paving the parking lot and adding another bay to the garage.
If you haven’t yet had a chance to check him out, shop hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
