AAA: Fins Car Wash opens first Summerville location

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — FINS of AAA has opened its first Summerville, South Carolina, location at 1027 N. Main St., making the carwash its fifth in the state and eighth in total, according to a press release.

“Cleanliness and excellent service have always been two of our top priorities, and we’re thrilled to bring those to the city of Summerville,” said Greg Ries, vice president of Fins Car Wash. “We look forward to joining this vibrant community and meeting our new neighbors and customers.” 

Fins Car Wash is an automatic carwash that offers a state-of-the-art, low-stress loading system that eases and enhances motorists’ carwash experience, the release added.

It is also equipped with spot-free rinse and heated blowers, which have been proven to be the most effective method of drying vehicles, the release noted.

FINS is open to AAA members and nonmembers alike, though AAA members receive discounts on the monthly memberships and other perks, the release continued.
