Owners of Vandalized Garage to Reopen Friday
Bubby's Oil, Lube and Filter Service will reopen Friday.
The owners closed the shop Tuesday after they discovered vandals had flooded the underbay of the garage.
Creed and April Galbraith estimated about $3,000 in damages and a loss of $2,500 each day they were closed.
To help recoup funds, they created a Gofundme.com page. As of Thursday night, they had raised $70.
"We don't like asking for money," the couple said, "but we totaled our loss and it's a little over $6,000."
The couple said they created the account because people wanted to help.
The Galbraiths, who opened the garage two years ago, said they found the strength to go on after the vandalism because of the community's overwhelming support.
After sharing a message on Facebook about the vandalism, the message was shared more than 300 times and hundreds filled the comment section with well-wishes.
"It's truly amazing," April Galbraith said.
After three days of cleaning, the couple said they expected to be finished Thursday night and an oil delivery is scheduled for Friday morning.
The shop is scheduled to open noon Friday.
