Car Consign opens

Car Consign, a new automotive service and maintenance shop, opened this month at the corner of Avenue C and Industrial Avenue. Williston resident William Burke, along with his two brothers, renovated the property and will specialize in automotive consignments, according to the company’s website.

Car Consign looks for vehicles for consignment that are less than 10 years old with under 130,000 miles on the odometer, although exceptions are made depending on make, model, condition and resale value.

In addition to full auto service, the shop also offers auto detailing, and buys and sell vehicles. For more information, call 399-2756 or visit
