We have lived in Marine for many years and have appreciated the businesses here and the small town atmosphere. We want to acknowledge one business in particular since we have been customers of theirs for a long time: Ostlund’s Marine Garage.

First and foremost, we appreciate their honesty in any work they suggest to be done for our vehicles, whether it be routine maintenance, replacing starters, tires or other parts. They go the “extra mile” in their service. Because of their integrity, only work that is necessary for a good running vehicle will be done. We refer to John as “Honest John” because of that fact! Neither John nor his employees will ever take advantage of us in any work they do.

Secondly, can you find a friendlier group of employees than Duane, Rob, Lynn, John (of course) and the Peterson boys? It is fun just going in their station because you know you will hear a few good stories and have a few laughs as well. 

Thank you, John and all of the rest of the crew for an important role you play not only in our lives but for other residents of Marine.
