This Thursday (8/23) is the annual FREE Brown Bear Car Wash! The hours for the event are from 8 am through 8pm, and you’ll be able to get the free “Bear Essential” car wash at any of the Brown Bear automated tunnel wash locations in Puget Sound.
I received a press release this morning about the event, here’s an excerpt:
For the past several years, Brown Bear has offered free “Bear Essentials” tunnel washes twice a year. With the annual “Free Wash Day” and Veterans Day events, an astounding 136,743 customers have received Free Washes over the past six years.
“We blend hard work, pride and a lot of fun into an event that benefits our customers and the environment. It’s a fitting way to say ‘thank you’ to our customers who have supported us over the years,” said Brown Bear founder and owner Vic Odermat.
Odermat started Brown Bear in Seattle in 1957 with one location at 15th Ave West in Seattle. Brown Bear now owns and operates car washes throughout the Puget Sound area and Spokane.
The family-owned company, through its parent company, Car Wash Enterprises, Inc., owns and operates a total of 41 car wash facilities in Washington State as well as a large network of gas stations and convenience stores. It is one of the largest privately held car wash chains in the U.S. and is widely recognized within the industry as being a leader in the environmental movement.
I’ve gone to this event the last two years and I want to tell you, do not be discouraged if you see a long line – it does move pretty fast! I’ll definitely be taking advantage of this promotion again this year. For more information about the event along with locations, please visit www.brownbear.com .
