Highest quality service and parts

Welcome to Main & Market Service Centre! 

Since September 1989, Main & Market Service Centre has proudly served the Ridgetown community and its surrounding areas, including Dresden, Chatham, Highgate, Morpeth, and Blenheim. Located at the corner of Main and Market Street in the heart of Ridgetown, our auto service center has been a trusted name in the automotive industry for over three decades. 

Our journey began when John, a dedicated resident of Ridgetown, set out on his apprenticeship in the automotive field. Little did he know that this journey would lead him to his future partner and the creation of the Main & Market Service Centre. 

John honed his skills and gained valuable experience while working at Canadian Tire in Blenheim. During these formative years, fate brought him together with his partner, who shared the same unwavering passion and vision for delivering top-notch auto repair services to our community. 

Their shared commitment to quality workmanship and customer satisfaction laid the foundation for Main & Market Service Centre. Together, they embarked on a mission to provide reliable automotive solutions, and in 1996, John officially took the reins of the business. 

With deep roots in the Ridgetown community and a steadfast dedication to excellence, Main & Market Service Centre has become a trusted name in automotive care. We are proud to continue serving our neighbours and friends with the same passion and commitment that started it all those years ago. Thank you for being part of our journey, and we look forward to serving you for many more years to come.
