Kicking Off The Holiday Season at Purnell Body Shop

Here at Purnell Body Shop, nothing means more to us than our customers, our employees and our families. That is why the holidays are so special and we are excited to get the holidays started here on the eve of Thanksgiving.

Things seem to be getting generally back to normal–certainly as it relates to seeing friends and loved ones over the holidays. Most Americans plan to see friends and relatives this holiday season–a marked change from last year when many were opting to stay home or have smaller-sized holiday gatherings. As a result, an expected return to normal holiday traveling and gathering routines is expected this holiday season. That means, not only road trips to the in-laws but also the annual Thanksgiving Eve trek to the local bar to catch up with old high school buddies. With that, we encourage everyone to celebrate the long Thanksgiving weekend safely on and off the roads.

In the spirit of the holiday, we would like to thank all of our friends throughout Cecil County who again this year voted us the best Auto Body Shop in the area. Winning Best of Cecil year after year is nice, but knowing that we have the continued support of these great communities is what truly means the world to us. Thank you all so much– you are the reason that we dedicate ourselves to be the best body shop in Cecil and beyond. You’re the best.

We are just getting started with the gratitude, by the way as it would be impossible to throw around thank-you’s without recognizing the best team in the collision and paint business– to our techs, managers, estimators, customer service staff and drivers, thank you for another year of unwavering dedication and excellence. You are in a class all your own and we would not have the reputation for unmatched quality without your efforts each and every day.

To our vendors and industry partners who keep us well served and, more importantly, keep us in the position to serve our own clients, we thank and appreciate all of you. Supply chain issues and rising costs have jammed up the works all over the industry this year. We recognize your efforts to help us in keeping our commitments to our customers each day here at the shop.

To all of our friends throughout Cecil County and beyond, we wish a happy Thanksgiving and hope for an opportunity to see you and celebrate with you throughout the holidays.
