Iowa Repair Shop Opens Bay for Body Work Following Storm

Aug. 24, 2022

Valley West Corner Store is opening space in its shop for auto body work following a recent hail storm. 

Aug. 24, 2022—A shop in Iowa that usually specializes in mechanical repair has switched gears after a recent hail storm overwhelmed the community with damage. 

According to WHO 13, drivers in West Des Moines are in desperate need of hail damage repairs on their vehicles following an impactful round of storms that hit the area. Body shops are getting booked up.

Valley West Corner Store has stepped up to the challenge by opening up a service bay for body work purposes. The goal is to help people get the work done that they need completed sooner rather than later.  

“Repair shops, they’re inundated, backed up. So what we’re doing is opening up a bay here and also the car wash and we’re going to allow a company to come in and allow them to do the work out of here to hopefully get people in and out for their car repair. I know some repair shops have been quoting November or later,” said shop owner Chad Staudenmaier to WHO 13.
