South Oldham Residents to Benefit from New Service

Residents of Crestwood and nearby Pewee Valley will soon benefit from the opening of the areas First Quick Lube that is set to open in early October on W. Hwy 146 behind National City Bank in Crestwood. Certified Express Lube will offer area residents the convenience of being able to have basic maintenance services performed locally. With the closest Quick Lube located 3 ½ miles away, area residents were forced to leave the South Oldham area and travel into Jefferson County for this type of service. “South Oldham residents want to spend their money here where they live,” owner Steve Heggie said. “This is a perfect extension of our existing business here in Crestwood.” “The Quick Lube product was a natural for us. “We already offer a wide range of automotive services, but the soccer moms wanted to have their vehicle serviced after they dropped the kids off at school,” he said. “The idea was actually my wifes.”

Heggie and his wife Lisa are the owners of Certified Transmission & Auto Service in Crestwood and have three children under the age of eight. “My wife is on a tight schedule with the kids and said our customers would love to be able to have their oil changed after leaving the car rider line in the morning.” “Once I thought about it, I realized customers had been saying the same thing for some time.” “We will now be able to provide quick lube services in addition to our current automotive service and repair business.” Heggie said he expects to add 3-5 new employees to the operation and have hours of 8-5pm M-F and of 8-2pm on Saturday.

Certified Express Lube will be housed inside of the existing Certified Transmission & Auto Service, which is located at 6540 W. Hwy 146 at the intersection of W. Hwy 146 & Floydsburg Road. The complex also includes Minish & Potts Florist, Fabulous Floors, and the Crestwood branch of National City Bank. The building was originally built as the Crestwood Bowling Alley in the 1960’s.
