Owner Megan Shalvoy recently opened Mrs. Bubbles Car Wash at 872 N.C. 150 W., Mooresville, one block east of Perth Road and Byers Creek Shopping Center.
The automatic car wash is open 24 hours, seven days a week. Its water reclamation system makes it environmentally green, Shalvoy said.
The car wash offers both soft-touch and touch-free washes. A tire shiner automatically shines the tires, and a 45-horsepower blower system dries the car, all within three minutes, Shalvoy said.
Mrs. Bubbles also offers fleet accounts, monthly and yearly wash packages and fundraising opportunities for schools, clubs and nonprofit organizations.
The car wash is the third for Shalvoy and her husband, Mike. They've operated one for about four years at 47 Cabarrus Ave. W., Concord, and recently opened one in Lincolnton.
