NEW ULM - For Wholesale Auto & Glass business owners Dean Burdorf and Eric Johnson, it's deja vu all over again.
Both men formerly worked at Martinka Motors, 219 N. Broadway. near the retails district of downtown New Ulm, years ago. Johnson worked in the Martinka body shop for a decade. Burdorf in the service shop for about 18 months.
The men later co-owned Wholesale Auto & Glass on County Road 27, several miles west of New Ulm. They moved their business to 2400 S. Broadway a number of years ago before relocating to the former Martinka Motors and Sun Valley Chrysler Plymouth location at 219 N. Broadway on Aug. 1.

"We've got lots more room now, and it's a great location," Burdorf said. "With a bigger shop, we can do all kinds of body work and mechanical repairs, from changing oil to major engine repairs."
The business, which recently added a full-time mechanic, offers $24.99 oil changes. Business hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, 8 t a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.
