CHATTANOOGA, TN — Chattanooga Detail opened last summer, and the owners said they survived a rough winter, Nooga.com reported.

The April 9 story stated that now the weather is warming up, the owners are hoping for more customers. "Winter is a rough time for our industry, but we made it through," Co-owner David Hopkins said in the story. "Things are looking up."
