It’s the end of an era for a Central Phoenix car wash.
For many years, Los Olivos Car Wash has served as a landmark of sorts on the corner of Third Street and McDowell Road. Located at a busy intersection just north of downtown Phoenix, the car wash was once a busy spot for motorists. Now, it’s closed for good.
The final Saturday of 2017 was the last open day for business at the car wash. Like several other properties along the same stretch of road, it’s slated to be redeveloped into a condo complex. The current owner has owned the property since 1989, and several loyal employees have spent many years there. The family-owned business attracted many customers for their prompt, personalized service. Los Olivos was also known for their support of LGBTQ rights.
