Auto shop opens with new owner


Longtime Haines resident Paul Peters has worked as a mechanic for 40 years, and has a new shop to show for it.

Peters Tire and Auto Repair, located at Third Avenue and Dalton Street, moved into its new home about three months ago, Peters said.

“There’s probably no job too big that we can’t tackle,” Peters said.

The shop offers automotive repair and will make service calls if necessary. Peters said the business will offer a towing service, too.

He works with his son, Brandon, and another employee, saying his son, “was raised with a wrench in his hand.”

Peters has lived in Haines full-time for the last 25 years. His wife, Jeni, is a retired teacher.

Peters is also a fisherman out of Sitka, but said he’s almost ready to sell the boat and spend his time at the shop.

Business has been coming and going since opening day, he said, but it has been “enough to keep the doors open.”

Peters Tire and Auto Repair is open six days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 766-2900 for service.
