Detail shop opens in Michigan

BLISSFIELD, MI ― Blissfield Lock & Detail also offers locksmithing services to help the owner, Jack Wilson, during his slower months in the winter.

BLISSFIELD, MI ― Jack Wilson learned how to detail cars at his family business when he was a teenager, and now he owns his own business, Blissfield Lock & Detail, which also includes locksmithing services, the Daily Telegram reported.

The Jan. 21 story said Wilson's daughter Ashely is the co-owner.

Wilson's father owned ABC Lock and Key as well as the West End Car Wash and Adrian A1 Lock and Key and A1 Detailing. He said owning a diversified business makes sense.

Operation offers climate-controlled car storage, detailing

“Locksmithing helps me get through the off-season,” he said in the story. “Most people don’t detail their cars in the wintertime.”

Eventually, Wilson would like to expand his menu of offerings and offer drive-through services for customers.
