Family Business Changing Gears
This week's Patch Portraits also features a Glenview wine expert and a Winnetkan au pair.
Ron Lundin loves his job.
Just ask him, or maybe his sister, brother, wife, sons or daughter.
They've all worked at Lin-Mar Motors, an automotive service shop in Morton Grove.
Lundin purchased the business from his father who opened the service shop more than 50 years ago.*
In less than a month, Lin-Mar Motors, currently on Lehigh Avenue, will scoot north one block to a larger site at 5940 Oakton Street.*
It signals an important moment in the history of the family business, said Lundin, who hopes that his children will carry on the tradition.
"Hopefully they'll stay on and Lin-Mar will be here for years to come," he said.
