Where did Cars for Keeps go?

As we reported on our Business page in February, the automotive repair company closed its flagship facility in Grand Haven, after shutting down its Spring Lake facility last year.

The outgoing message for the answering machine at Cars for Keeps, 1050 Fulton Ave., states: “Cars for Keeps is now closed. We have gone out of business.”

The Tribune left several messages for owner Rob Hopp on his cellphone, but he did not return our calls.

Hopp started the automotive repair business as Automotive Advantage in Ferrysburg in 1990.

Cars for Keeps opened a second location at 14747 Cleveland St. in Spring Lake Township in 2011. That facility closed this past fall.
