In a recent edition of the Reader, an article appeared indicating that Meineke Discount Mufflers at 1622 W. Irving Park Road had been sold for development and would close in April of this year [“There Went the Neighborhood,” February 18].

Please be advised that Meineke Discount Mufflers has not been sold, and there are no present plans for it to be sold. We will continue to be open to serve our customers, as we have done for almost twenty years.

We appreciate your efforts to bring the correct facts to the attention of your readers and our customers.


Dick Bolotin and Neal Greenfield

Owners of Meineke Discount Mufflers

Thanks for confirming that it was only a rumor.
