Good Deed: Hixson garage owner makes good on charity gift for out-of-business competitor

Hixson garage owner makes good on charity gift for out-of-business competitor

Several weeks ago, I obtained a gift certificate from an automotive shop in Hixson for the Rotary Club of Chattanooga, Hamilton Place Golf Tournament. This was to be a door prize. A few weeks later, I went in for a regular service and found the shop was out of business. Obviously, this was going to be a problem for our gift certificate.

Later that day, I stopped at Farmer's Garage, a new business, on Hixson Pike. After hearing my tale of woe, Larry Farmer, the owner, offered to be the new sponsor so we wouldn't lose the prize. Without hesitation, he was happy to help us out. What wonderful generosity. Farmer's Garage is my first choice for service for my vehicles -- excellent work and fair prices.

Thank you, Larry Farmer!

I remembered the time when we were hit by typhoon catrina, Hixson has became our helping hand in renovating our garage door. I felt had hearing this news that they are out of business. The workers are good and the company itself was very reliable. Hope they would come up with the solution in solving their problems. Anyway, this is business and it's either you failed or succeed in the arena amongst your competitors.
