Icy Roads Cause “Overwhelming” Amount of Business for Body Shops in Abilene, TX

Icy road conditions in Abilene, TX during the first week of the New Year left body shops overflowing with cars in need of repairs, according to bigcountryhomepage.com.

People continue to line up outside of Barret's Body Shop on S. Legget Drive in Abilene (Big Country) as the winter weather surges on. The workload doesn’t appear to be shrinking anytime soon, according to employees.

The local police department responded to one hundred fifty-five wrecks over a three day period, according to bigcountryhomepage.com. Shops are backed up, which is expected during the busiest time of the year.

Rocky Champion, owner of Barret's Body Shop, told bigcountryhomepage.com that they were busy before the bad driving conditions, and is now “overwhelmed.”

Barret’s Body Shop workers will continue to prep for the coming winter months and the business they always bring.
