The Village Auto Wash opened its bays to the public in May.
The new business is located two blocks from an area VPL Petro-Canada gas station and features four wash bays, express keys, cleaning products and air fresheners.
“There’s four wand wash bays in total. There’s two washes in each bay,” co-owner Steve Pfeiffer said.
Pfeiffer and co-owner, Scott Phippen, hope the new business will also increase employment in the area. “We’ll be hiring three or four people,” Pfeiffer said.
The recently opened All Star Wash offered customers a free Rain X application, on opening day owner Andy Eisenberg said.
The automatic tunnel offers “a high quality soft foam wash and towel dry’’ with prices starting at $5.75.
Eisenberg said the new Rain X product enhances the paint as well as protects the glass.
The Rain X treatment, which normally costs $2, was included as a grand opening special.

The recently opened Old Town and Country carwash is the first of its kind in southern Utah.
Old Town and Country offers its patrons a unique hand-wash service, along with gas and snacks.
Aaron McAfee, owner of the wash, said he searched for a location for years before finding a lot situated between a Wal-Mart and nursery.
The wash, which took three months to rebuild, was formerly an EZ Shoppe convenience store.
