Project description: Chesterfield-based Knoebel Construction completed a Jiffy Lube on West Sunshine Street in December, plus another that opened shortly after in Nixa. The company is back in the area working on the latest four-bay shop adjacent to Menards, 500 N. Eastgate Ave. The store will feature the open service pit structure that is typical to Jiffy Lube. It takes four months to complete a project, company officials say. The shop will follow the Jiffy Lube Multicare model, with two bays devoted to fast oil changes and two devoted to other mechanical work, including brake, diagnostic and tire services. Appointments are not required for service at Jiffy Lube, which has 2,000 locations nationwide.
On Oct. 27, Convoy of Hope dedicated its new 250,000-square-foot distribution center and broke ground on its next project: a 200,000-square-foot headquarters and training center, which will be connected to the distribution center by a skywalk.
