Sterling Autobody Opens New Store in Chicago Area

Lincolnwood, Ill., facility represents 7th store in Chicago area and 63rd nationwide.

Sterling Autobody Centers has announced that it opened its 7th store in the Chicago area on May 14. The new, state-of-the art, 33,000-square-foot facility has 18 technicians and front office staff and is located at 7080 N. McCormick Blvd. in Lincolnwood, Ill.  

Sterling now operates 63 vehicle repair facilities in
16 states, with a Store Support Center in Natick, Mass. 

“Our new Lincolnwood facility is strategically placed to provide customers with industry-leading service in a very customer friendly environment,” said Nick Notte, president of Sterling Autobody Centers. “We continually monitor the needs of our customers, and last year we closed a couple of stores that just didn’t fit our model. Shifting resources from those stores allowed us to open the Lincolnwood facility in record time.” 

Sterling acquired the pre-existing building and renovated both the interior and exterior, creating a cleaner, brighter and more attractive structure. Included is a new, more customer-friendly office design featuring improved lighting, warmer tones, and retail-like conveniences like free Wi-Fi and a beverage station. Many of the building elements remain, and new materials were carefully reviewed for environmental impact.

The new location includes an environmentally-friendly downdraft paint booth and dual paint prep station, utilizing 98-percent efficient air filters that meet and exceed air quality requirements. The new booth provides for the use of waterborne paints, which reduces the amount of solvent vapors in the environment.
