NFIB member John O’Connor, whose local auto repair shop is well known to the folks in Morristown, New Jersey, will be featured soon on a popular International business program on Singapore’s Channel News Asia.

Morristown, NJ, November 24, 2010 --( Local Morris County resident and owner of Shade Tree Garage, John O’Connor, will be featured on a popular International business program on Singapore’s Channel News Asia. This occurred after a request was made to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). As a member of this leading small business organization, O’Connor was contacted to give his perspective of operating a small business in an unsteady job market.

According to O’Connor, “Though we don’t have any customers coming directly from Singapore, it’s an honor to be representing New Jersey’s small businesses on this scale.” Shade Tree Garage is a family-run, general auto service business that employs 10 people and has been part of the community for 30 years. The business is a member of the NFIB, a non-profit, non-partisan organization founded to promote and protect the rights of their members to own, operate and grow their businesses.

O’Connor states, “When we opened our doors in 1975, we made a commitment to being in business for the long haul. To accomplish our mission we’re dedicated to providing our customers with the very best in trusted automotive repair. Because of this pledge, we’ve been in the forefront of technology and protecting the environment for as long as we can remember.”

Businesses like Shade Tree Garage are the foundation of the U.S. economy. As O’Connor states, “It’s a positive sign that the media is focusing on small businesses because it may positively influence the policymakers in Trenton and Washington.”

Shade Tree Garage is a trusted independent automotive repair shop located in Morristown, New Jersey. They work hard to accomplish their mission: “To give you peace of mind about the safety and reliability of your car.” They are located at 171 Washington Street, just past Mills and next to Golden Cleaners.
