For more than 60 years, Barmore Sellstrom Inc. has been a go-to spot in the Southern Tier for all things automotive repair. And last week, the company earned itself some well-deserved praise.

Seeing as how tire service and repair is a big part of the company, the auto repair mecca was awarded the Goodyear Dealer Award for 25 consecutive years of loyal customership to Goodyear.

The award is the first from Goodyear received by Barmore Sellstrom Inc., and according to co-owner Chris Barmore, receiving it was “awesome.”

“They don’t just give this one out … it’s a pretty prestigious award,” Barmore said.

Barmore Sellstrom Inc., located at 1403 E. Second St., provides multiple automative services, including 24-hour roadside assistance, winter preparation and complete repair services from ASE-certified technicians. Repair services range from minor fixes like brake repairs and car alignment services to major overhauls.

For Barmore, the secret to the company’s success has been its emphasis on customer service.

“We take care of the customer and the customer is always first,” he said.

Ryan Ecklund, service manager at Barmore Sellstrom Inc., thanked Goodyear for the recognition.

“It was nice to know that they’re thinking of their dealers and go out of their way to show their appreciation,” he said.

Barmore Sellstrom Inc. is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. to noon. For more information, call 655-6426 or visit
