Top Notch Car Wash ends business after 26 years

March 3, 2017|

Owners Donald Cawley and Doug Millar have decided to part ways and end their 26-year-long partnership in the car wash business, the last fifteen as Top Notch Car Wash. While the Top Notch name is going away, the three locations will continue to be used as car washes.

Beginning in March, Top Notch Car Wash – Martinez, at 3853 Washington Road, will become a Rock ‘N Wash Auto Spa and will be operated by Cawley. The wash will offer express washes, full-services washes and detail services.

Both Top Notch locations in Evans and West Augusta will remain under the Top Notch name for the next 30 to 45 days, but will soon become Tidal Wave Auto Spas under Millar’s ownership. The W. Augusta location, 2841 Washington Road Evans location, will be closed during March for extensive remodeling, and the Evans location, 512 N Belair Rd., will be closed in April for remodeling as well. Full-service washes will no longer be available at these two locations after conversion to Tidal Wave.

Along with the name, Top Notch gift cards and unlimited wash plans also will be going away. All Top Notch gift cards will be honored at all locations until the locations close around April 15. After April 15, gift cards will be honored at the two Tidal Wave locations until December 31, 2017.

“I’m so proud to have been a small business owner in the CSRA for 26 years. I look forward to continuing to serve the area through my new business venture with Tidal Wave Auto Spa, and I’m thankful to all of our Top Notch customers for their business all of these years,” Millar wash
