Al's Car Care
The eponymous Al Schneider of Al's Car Care opened his auto shop in 1979, but his industry experience in the Treasure Valley dated back to the '50s. In 1985 he handed the keys to current owners Rick and Sue Foerster. Two owners in 36 years is pretty darn good for a car and even better for a business. Drop off your auto at Al's full-service shop on Grove Street and you'll see what commitment to quality looks like. alscarcareboise.com.
