Allstar acquired by H & V Collision Centers

Got the details on Allstar, here's the story we'll be running tomorrow:

SARATOGA SPRINGS — H & V Collision Centers has taken over the former Allstar body shop on Route 50 near Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
H&V Vice President Vartan Jerian Jr. said his company took over the Route 50 location Thursday night; the deal was in the works for several months.
Jerian said all 15 of the former Allstar employees were kept on and he plans to add about 10 additional employees over the next year.
He’s also planning to totally renovate the space.
This is H & V Collision Center’s fourth location — their flagship store in Troy opened 40 years ago and they also have locations in Colonie and Queensbury.
“We’re a growing company and we’ve been seeing the growth in the Saratoga market and we wanted to take advantage of that,” Jerian said.
“We’re looking to grow, become part of the community and add some new jobs to the market,” he added.
 Jerian said the company’s “major forte is to take care of customers who have been involved in collisions.”
Saratoga Portable Storage is located at the same property as H & V, Jerian said it has yet to be determined if they will stay there.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car is also located there and will stay on. “They’re actually in a couple of our other locations, as well,” Jerian said.
H & V Collision Centers can handle all collision-related repair work as well as other mechanical work.
Allstar was a Chevrolet Cadillac dealer until the fall of 2009 when the owner decided to drop its affiliation with then-financially-troubled GM. The 40-year-old business became a Napa Auto Parts dealer and full-service body shop at that time.
H & V Collision is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
