Gilboy's Towing


Gilboy's Towing was started by Patrick Gilboy in 1967. Pat worked out of a service station at Dewey & Harrison until 1977, then built a shop next door in 1977. He moved the business to 8 Dewey Boulevard in January of 1995. The new complex has 3 acres of land a lot more room. Pat has seen many changes in his 35 years in the towing and repair business. He states that Gilboy's Towing has had its share of bad times just as any business, but he is still there and wouldn't trade a single day of it.
