Danielle Sapienza, owner of Reox Automotive, told WGNS that they are closing their local business near the Broad and Medical Center Parkway intersection in Murfreesboro.
Sapienza stated, "We first want to give a warm thank you to our community for embracing our family since moving here from California in 2012. When we took over Reox Automotive, we still did not known many. It was comforting for us to get to know those throughout the Murfreesboro area as they needed their repair service. We had a long year of changing this company's reputation, obtaining loyal customers and making it important to us to never forget our roots. My father, who has given me the opportunity to start a business, helped support me in this amazing experience. But, as time had passed and though we gained so many new customers, we really couldn't afford to stay here anymore. The rent had really eaten up a lot of our possible profit."
Reox is the local shop that collected Toys for Tots and also gave a car away to a family in need. Their goodwill didn't stop there. The shop also helped to collect grocery items for families that could not afford such necessities, just to name a few.
However, it is not the end as Sapienza said that she intends to open a new location in the future. She said that the new automotive repair shop will be smaller, yet that will leverage their assets and manpower to better serve the growing community. In closing she stated, "I hope that God can guide us through to our next journey."
