Express Lube marks 25th years in New Richmond

Express Lube and Rental, which has been locally owned and operated since 1987, is celebrating it's 25th anniversary and thanking the New Richmond area for the support over the years.

The business, which is owned by Leo and Jeri DuRand, provides oil changes and a number of other car services with no appointment necessary.

Leo DuRand said the goal is that "people are able to get their car serviced when they need it serviced."

An oil change at Express Lube and Rental includes 5 quarts of oil, an oil filter, a fluids check, a windshield wash, vacuuming and an overall check of the vehicle. The business will also do fluid changes and flushes, replace filters and bulbs, rotate tires and more.

Express Lube and Rental has many different types of equipment and party rentals available as well. They have numerous trailers and tractors for moving and construction needs, tables, chairs, jump-bounce houses, coolers, snow cone machines, chocolate fountains and much more.

"We had the idea of doing the 10 minute oil change and adding equipment rental," Jeri DuRand said. "It just kept going from there."

In honor of their 25th anniversary, Express Lube and Rental had $25 oil changes on Wednesday, July 25. They also set up their tents and jump bounces and provided lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"We hope to do it all again next year when our Hudson store turns 25," Jeri DuRand said.

The Hudson branch of Express Lube and Rental provides many of the same services and equipment rentals and is located on O'Keefe Road in Hudson.

Both Jeri and Leo DuRand said the business has continued to grow throughout the past 25 years, and they have their customers to thank for that.

"The people of New Richmond and the area have been very good to us," Leo DuRand said.

Jeri DuRand said they have some loyal customers who continue to come back and pass the word about their company on to new generations.

"I think over the years we've built a pretty good customer base," Jeri DuRand said. "A lot of loyal, local customers come and stay with us."

Jeri DuRand said that they're constantly trying to improve and update the business to give the customers what they want.

"If you've tried us in the past and weren't happy, come back and try us again because we're always trying to improve and do better," Jeri DuRand said.
