February Anniversaries: 12 Years in Eugene


There are many good reasons Eugene is known as “Track Town USA”. Home to some of the most passionate running fans in the world, the city has served as the birthplace of Nike, witnessed the rise to fame of Coos Bay native Steve Prefontaine, and hosted five Olympic track and field trials.

This beautiful Willamette Valley community is also home to three Oil Can Henry’s service centers, all owned by local residents Jeff and Donna Christian.

The couple opened their first center in Springfield, just across I-5 from Eugene, and quickly gained a loyal following. It became common to find long lines of customers patiently waiting for their turn in the service bays.

So, three years later, on February 23, 2001, Jeff and Donna opened their first Eugene center at Barger Crossing, across from WinCo. Seven years later, they opened their third center in the area, next to Hampton Inn on W. 11th Avenue.

Congratulations to Jeff, Donna and the superb, trained technicians at their three Eugene area centers, as well as the five other Oil Can Henry’s centers celebrating February anniversaries:
