Staying Young's: New Business Rises Behind the Old

Young's Auto celebrates a belated groundbreaking in Muskego's downtown, continuing 33 years of service.

Donald Young got a little emotional in thanking the business community and the city for its help in making a new auto collision repair shop a reality.

He spoke as the Chamber of Commerce and other partners came out to celebrate a groundbreaking ceremony for a new on Friday afternoon.

"I couldn't have done it without all of your help," he said.

The current shop, which was estimated to have been built around 1922, is going to be torn down as Janesville Road is widened, which was a little bittersweet for Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti, who was on hand to congratulate Young.

"I hate to see an old building be torn down, but it is a sign of progress, and we're happy to help out Young's with getting a new building," she said.

The structure has been rising since construction began on it in late fall, towering over and directly behind the older shop. Builder Kevin Zokan explained that concrete work in the building will be next, but as the structure has kept the sun from warming the ground, they are waiting for the frost line to recede.

Normally, the groundbreaking ceremony comes before the building, but organizers said the spirit of the event was the important part, and temperatures in the 70s didn't hurt, either.

The new facility should be ready for a grand opening in fall.
