A The former Hi-Tech Automotive property at 758 Enterprise has been recently sold to Midwest Painting and Wallcovering of Cape Girardeau. Tom Kelsey, broker with Lorimont Commercial Real Estate handled the sale to the Cape Girardeau based commercial painting contractor. Kelsey said Burrows, owner of Hi-Tech Automotive has decided to retire and close the auto repair business back in late summer. Burrows had operated at that location since the mid 1980's.
Midwest Painting plans on expanding the office areas in the 4,000 SF industrial building and making other modifications, most likely relocating sometime early next year. The new buyer is a commercial, industrial, and residential contractor specializing in painting, drywall hanging, finishing, and wallpaper installation. Kelsey said the business had outgrown their former location at 2121 Bessie Street and the new building and location will enable them to continue to expand.
