A 20-bay automated car wash may open off Winder Highway in Oakwood by early spring.
Construction is underway on Zips Car Wash, next to CVS Pharmacy and across from the Kroger-anchored Royal Lakes Marketplace. The CVS is off Winder Highway and Martin Road.
Cars will travel through a 100-foot tunnel for a fully automatic wash, with customers getting a free self-serve vacuum afterward, owner Steve Faiella said this week.
Zips, based in Little Rock, Ark., operates 136 locations in 14 states, including Georgia. The chain has area locations in Cleveland, Cornelia and Commerce, according to Zips’ website.
The chain also offers a rewards program and Unlimited Wash Club.
