Muskogee gas station offers old-fashioned customer service
MUSKOGEE, Okla. (KTUL) -- A young man is making a good living with a business model that's gone out of style in this country.
He's operating the only full-service gas station in Muskogee.
Eastside Gas and Lube, on Eastside Boulevard, is located in a building that's 60 years old. The building has two garage bays and features classic steel panels on the exterior.
Matt Young took over the struggling business several years ago when the owner became sick. Young decided to operate his business like the service stations of the 1950s.
He charges a few cents more for his gas, but he'll check your oil and tires and wash your windshield with every fill-up.
To become a part of the neighborhood, Young also helps kids with bike tires and handles any job that a car owner needs.
Young said he enjoys building relationships with his customers. Many are retired people who like being able to deal with just one shop for all their automotive needs.
So if you need a fill-up and a windshield cleaning, look for the red and white place with the old-school attitude.
