Buddy Bear Car Wash, which recently opened a new location at 1901 W. Cermak in Broadview, is offering area motorists an offer that they may not be able to refuse — the first 10,000 cars washed are free.
During a regular meeting of the Broadview Board of Trustees on Jan. 22, Phil Degeratto, Buddy Bear’s owner, encouraged village residents to take advantage of the offer.
“We hope everyone in the village comes and supports, and come check out our car wash,” he said.
During the meeting, Broadview Mayor Katrina Thompson encouraged Broadview residents who have purchased an automatic recharge plan and had been using the Buddy Bear Car Wash located at 1059 Mannheim Rd. in Bellwood, to utilize the plans at the new Broadview location.
“That [plan] is transferable, so I encourage our residents who currently have the unlimited wash that you pay for monthly to utilize Broadview,” Thompson said, before addressing Degeratto. “We have [a Buddy Bear] here in town and we’re so happy you’re in our town doing business.”
As of Jan. 26, Buddy Bear had already washed its first 2,500 cars, according to the company’s Facebook page.
Late last month, Thompson and other village officials toured the new facility. VFP
