Arlie's looks to expand, buys more buildings

Staff writer

Arlie and Gina Overton have purchased the former Conoco station at Walnut and Main Sts. in Marion and plan to use it as an expansion of Arlie’s Collision Specialists.

“We’re growing like crazy,” Arlie Overton said, “and we need more space. We want to keep the business in Marion.”

They bought the former lumberyard in May, which adjoins Arlie’s, and plan to convert the building into their main shop. They want to start working on larger trucks.

Overton said his business grew by 30 percent in 2019 and almost that much in 2018. He has expanded his work force from four to eight employees and hopes to add another in the next three months.

They plan eventually to move the offices to the corner location.
