Happy Thanksgiving from Purnell Body Shop

We have a tremendous amount to be thankful for here at Purnell Body Shop and so much of it starts with this great community. Fantastic families, fellow business owners and local vendors who make doing business in Cecil County second to none. Thank you all for all you do to contribute to our success in growing our local business here in Elkton for over 60 years.

As we wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, we would like to remind folks that our offices will be closed Thursday and Friday so that our dedicated employees can spend some well-earned time with family! As always, we will have emergency towing up and running throughout the holiday and the weekend. For those of you who are traveling for the holiday, we would remind everyone to please pack the patience. A drop in gas prices and other factors are leading AAA to predict that this Thanksgiving will be one of the busiest on the roads in years, if not ever.

For those of you staying local and meeting up with the old gang from high school, please celebrate this holiday and the remainder of the holiday season safely. And, if you are going out to see friends, please plan your way home before you go out. A designated driver or rideshare service is better than a DUI any day.

From all of us at Purnell Body Shop, we’d like to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!
