Ready to head into retirement, Mark Sheppard has sold his business, Quality Automotive Repair of Sault Ste. Marie.
Mike Lynn of Sault Ste. Marie, who has an extensive background in the automotive industry, is the new owner, according to a news release.
Lynn previously owned and operated Lynn Auto Parts, Inc., which features over 10 locations across Northern Michigan.
