Stop Breast Cancer for Life

Lifetime 2010October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Lowell’s has been working with Lifetime Television and Insight Media to support Lifetime’s “Stop Breast Cancer for Life” campaign. You may have already seen our joint ads (below) with Lifetime on Insight cable.

We also support local efforts to find the cure. For every vehicle we see in October, we’ll donate $1 to Komen Lexington (the Lexington affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure).

We encourage everyone to become familiar with common risk factors for breast cancer and to learn what you can do to help prevent it.

The Next Best Thing

We love our awards.

AceLogo  Over the years, Lowell’s has been voted “Best Mechanic” eight times by Ace Weekly readers, including a win in 2009.

We’ve also been voted Readers’ Choice “Favorite Auto Repair Shop” four times by Herald-Leader readers, including the last three times the repair shop category has been available: 2007, 2009, and 2010.

Our awards are vital to our growth as a business – they tell prospective customers that our current customers really like doing business with us.

So you might imagine our disappointment when we found out that Ace dropped the “Best Mechanic” category from its 2010 Best of Lex [PDF link] awards.

When the Best of Lex awards came out recently, however, we were in for a pleasant surprise:

“Some ‘classic’ categories are retired this year to make room for new ones to rotate in — best veterinarian and best mechanic always generate a frenzy of votes, for example — but Chevy Chase Small Animal and Lowell’s (respectively) have won so often that it was time to let the readers vote for something new…”

While it isn’t quite as prestigious as a ‘win’, having a category retired because we’ve won it so often is still a considerable honor.

Thank you so much for supporting us (and voting for us!) over the years.  And here’s hoping the “Best Mechanic” award makes a return in 2011.
