History of Our Family Serving Yours
In 1962, Woodie Enterprises, Inc. began as a single service
station owned by Ernest Woodie. This station was located on Independence Blvd.
at Albemarle Road and was branded as an Esso station. This location was moved
in 1971 to the Midtown area and renamed Charlottetown Exxon. From this one store
operation it has grown under the leadership of Mr. Woodie's two sons. Mike joined
the operation in 1973 and Brad in 1985.
The first addition was in 1986 with Central Ave. Exxon Car Care; this location
was moved in October 2001 to E. Independence Blvd. and renamed to WE Care Auto
& Tire. The next addition was Sharon Exxon West in 1998; this was followed
by Ashley Road Auto & Tire in January 2002. It was decided in September of
2003 to organize all the locations under the Woodie's Auto Service® and Repair
Centers. Several additional locations have been opened since that time, Woodie's
Auto Service® / Uptown in October 2003; Woodie's Auto Service® / Midtown
in January 2004 and a European Specialty Facility Woodie's Auto Service® /
PAS in October 2007, Woodie's Auto Service / Carmel Road in January 2012.
In addition to the automotive repair facilities Woodie Enterprises also owns and operates a Shell convenience store as well as a Deli / Convenience Store located in Uptown Charlotte.
The Woodie Family wishes to sincerely "Thank You" for the over 50 years of patronage
you, our customers have shown us. We have many second generation customers and
even repair the automobiles of a number of third generation customers. It has
been a rewarding experience being so tightly woven into the fabric of the Dilworth/
Myers Park Communities. The Woodie Family greatly appreciates the confidence you
have placed in us over the years. This confidence has translated into many referrals
of your family, friends and neighbors, enabling us to expand our automobile repair
business with several others locations with the same high ethical code that the
Woodie Family has built its' reputation on.
As many of you know Midtown area's iconic Charlottetown Exxon closed December
23, 2005. Our Exxon was the last business on Kings Drive to fall prey to the Little
Sugar Creek Greenway Project, although it will not be a gas station Charlottetown
is back. We opened a new repair service facility right around the corner from our old Kings Drive location. We felt it was only fitting since it is located
at 1024 Charlottetowne Ave., that it be named after Charlottetown Exxon. The name
is very special to us for the history and the quality service and repair standards
it represents. Woodie's Auto Service Charlottetown opened in October 2008.
We opened a repair facility in January 2012 at Carmel Road and Highway
51. The Carmel Road location is the first store we built from the ground up and
we are very excited with the improvements and technology advances that will help
us serve our customers. We installed a state of the industry alignment system
that includes a drive on alignment rack that will allow any vehicle with low clearance
to be easily aligned.
In November 2012 we moved our service department from 8641 South Blvd. to 6500
South Blvd.(former Hawthorne Quick Lane Building) We now have an 18 bay service
facility, a large and comfortable waiting area as well as additional staffing
and equipment to service our customers. Please stop in and visit Jeff, Chris and
Steve at their new home.
Our expansion has continued in January 2015 with the opening of a new 18 service bay location in Ballantyne as well as a new 18 service bay location in Davidson in June of 2015.
Carmel Road, Ballantyne, Davidson and now our newest location Huntersville have all been built from the ground up with the latest technology in energy efficiency and automotive repair technology to help us better serve our customers. Stop in and visit Barry, Karl and Drew at our newest location in Huntersville that opened August 2016.
