Tobias Anthem celebrating 2014 AAA Top Shop Award

ANTHEM – Tobias’ Automotive Specialists has been part of the Anthem community since 2001. To start off the new year, they’re announcing new awards, services, and a new manager for the Anthem store. The store just received its sixth consecutive AAA Top Shop Award.

Mike Still has been working with cars in one way or another for almost 40 years. Now, he’s channeling that experience into management at the Tobias’ Automotive Specialists in Anthem, starting Feb. 2.

“I really enjoy working with people,” Still said. He described his automotive background – everything from racing cars to repairing them, as well as his mechanical background. Still worked with several different shops, most recently managing a national franchise and frequently traveling for business. As a recent Desert Hills resident, Still wanted to work in the area and utilize his customer service experience in a community business.

“I’m looking forward to building some really strong relationships with our customers,” Still noted, saying he was ready to whatever was needed. “I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty,” he said with a smile. “Management is everything from HR to cleaning the toilets!”

Tobias Auto, which offers basic to major automotive service, has been a community presence in Cave Creek for 26 years and Anthem for 15 years.

Anthem resident Andy Tobias, who co-owns the stores with his wife Louise, noted that they chose to open an Anthem store because they felt this was a place where they could become “part of the community.” He and Louise are actively involved in local business and charitable organizations, including We Care Anthem. Through The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, they have provided automotive services to local families in need.

Tobias described his shop as a “local, hometown place.”

“We want to be here for everybody,” Tobias said, noting they have customers from as far away as Prescott. The store provides shuttle service, loaner cars, free flat tire and jumpstart services for stranded customers, and free towing if needed. The Anthem store is open Saturdays to accommodate customers who don’t have time to come in during the workweek.
