In 1953 Donald Berning started out his auto shop with two gas pumps selling Standard gas on Main Street in Albertville MN; currently where the Albertville Body Shop is located today. He began work there in 1943 when it was Albertville Motor Sales, and by 1956 had taken control of both the auto repair shop and motor sales. This is your true family home town business. All of Donald’s family has worked with him to make this a staple in Albertville. His wife Janet helped with the bookwork and his six sons worked in his shop at one point. Sons Gordy and Greg are still employed with the business. In 1976 the auto repair shop moved to County Rd 37 with the Amoco gas station where the store is still located today now selling BP gas and a small convenience store. Donald passed on in 2004, and currently his son Gordy and wife Theresa have taken over the business and all four of their children have helped with working in the repair shop and gas station over the years with three of them still helping out part time.
People know they can rely on our honesty coming to our repair shop. Without our customers we obviously wouldn’t be here and we will thrive on this today; honest communication and commitment to our customers.
