Matt's One Stop has reached the 40th year serving the Sound Beach and surrounding area. Through those years there have been many changes both to this tight knit community and to Matt's One Stop. Sound Beach has evolved from a primarily summer cottage community to a thriving area of year-round homes and growing businesses. The original Matt's One Stop located on New York Avenue is the mechanical repair shop and Gulf gas station. The building has been expanded over the years to accommodate new equipment needed to properly service modern autos and trucks.
The extension to the repair shop soon became inadequate and a second building across the street was purchased to house the collision portion of the business. That building has also been expanded to allow space for a modern down draft spray booth and frame straightening equipment.
Geri [recently retired] and Jay Card, the founders come from long backgrounds in the auto repair industry. Geri's father owned shops in Oceanside and Rockville Centre, he was also an original partner in Matt's One Stop. Jay's father owned shops in Brooklyn.
Jay attends to the business while long time Sound Beach resident, Kevin Dallon manages the repair shop assisted by foreman Brock and staffed by Cameron, James O, James B and Ray.
