In 1987, the Dayton Daily News briefly outlined the life of Charles L. Marshall, the then 86-year-old president and owner of Grismer Tire. Though the article appeared a quarter of a century ago, it still captured 55 years worth of history at Grismer, from its purchase during ?the dark days? of the Great Depression?thanks to Marshall?s winning personality and a banker?s $13,000 loan?to its transformation into one of the most successful auto centers in Ohio.

Today, at each of its 22 locations scattered across Southern Ohio, ASE-certified technicians continue to dispense the top-notch service that made the garage famous. They drain and replenish oil, align wheels, and fix busted transmissions and cooling systems. Equipped with nine brands of tires, including Michelin, Bridgestone, and BF Goodrich, the team outfits rides of all makes and models with brand-new rollers, allowing them to zip down highways or blend in at parades with ease.

Cars are vain and sensitive; they care about how they look and want their owners to feel proud driving them, even if it's through a conveniently placed pyramid of watermelons. For $40, today's deal treats your steel steed to an exterior detail package from Attention to Detail Plus (an $85 value, which can also be applied to more expensive and extensive car care). Attention to Detail Plus requires an appointment, even if your car prefers to strut around as it pleases on its hind tires because it "thinks it's people."

The keen-eyed crew at Attention to Detail Plus put customer service first; they'll even offer you pick-up or delivery within 20 miles of their Hilliard location. They’ll clean up any vehicle of any size (so long as its paint is in good condition and requires no correction). An Express Exterior package at Attention to Detail Plus takes about 2-3 hours and includes a comprehensive hand washing and blow-drying, even for those hard-to-reach ticklish spots. The interior will be vacuumed to round up any renegade cracker crumbs, and the windows washed. Finally, they’ll apply a fine layer of cherry wax to gently exfoliate, polish, and deep-clean the pores of the paint.

Attention to Detail Plus performs all its detailing inside heated indoor bays using eco-friendly cleaning products, proving once and for all that blue-whale ambergris is overrated as a car polish. By the time you leave Attention to Detail Plus, your car will have regained the luster you remember it having the day you and your car first saw each other across the lot, before that cruel salesman came between you.
