Support Local: W.C. Industries

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In April 2020, COVID-19 brought much of Arizona’s economy to a screeching halt. All businesses not deemed “essential” were ordered closed by Arizona’s governor Doug Ducey.

  The lockdown continued for nearly two months. When Gov. Ducey finally gave the go ahead to reopen, businesses slowly began the road to recovery. Even those listed as “essential” had a challenge with this economic recovery.

  Many small businesses and non-profits in Arizona didn’t survive the lockdown. The businesses that did survive are hanging on as best they can. Copper Area News wanted to give something back to the local business community as a thank you for supporting us through these troubled times. Our newspapers (Copper Basin News, Superior Sun and San Manuel Miner) have been featuring local businesses and non-profits since the beginning of 2021, encouraging our readers to Shop at Home, stay local and support our local businesses. To date, Copper Area News has featured 93 businesses and groups in the Copper Corridor.

  It is hard enough making it as a small business in a small town during normal times. But to balance those difficulties during a pandemic adds an entirely different twist to things. Auto repair businesses were considered to be essential and didn’t have to shut down. Still, local small auto shops struggle to make it even in the best of times, making it all the more important to use local mechanics whenever needed.

  Walt’s Place, also known as W.C. Industries, has officially been open for a little over two years. He opened just prior to the pandemic. The owner, Walt Campion, operated out of his home before opening his shop in Mammoth.

  W.C. Industries offers auto repairs in the form of engine repairs and major repairs like part replacement. They also offer welding. The only thing they don’t do is offer tire services.

  W.C. Industries is located at 341 N. Hwy. 77 in Mammoth between Dollar General and the Rancheros Market. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. You can reach them at (520) 891-7564.

  Walt is grateful for the response to his business.

  “Thanks for supporting local business,” he said.

  Your car in need of engine repairs? Why not call W.C. Industries?
