To celebrate its 63rd birthday, Brown Bear Car Wash is offering free “Beary Clean” car washes at 27 tunnel locations Thursday, Aug. 27.
Free “Beary Clean” car washes are available for customers from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 27 tunnel wash locations, including the Federal Way location (34007 Hoyt Road SW).
The Seattle-based, family-owned company has provided over 443,000 free “Beary Clean” washes over the past 13 years to celebrate its August birthday and to honor former and current service members on Veterans Day.
Brown Bear Founder and CEO Victor Odermat opened the company’s first location in 1957 at 1800 15th Ave West in Seattle. Brown Bear owns and operates 52 car washes throughout the Puget Sound area and Spokane.
“This has become a tradition for us, and it’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the loyal customers who have supported us for over 60 years,” Odermat said. “It’s a fun and busy day as we celebrate with our customers while benefitting the environment.”
With everything surrounding COVID-19, there will be some modifications this year, including the closure of vacuums to maintain social distancing during this busy day, said Odermat.
Throughout the year, Brown Bear has instituted enhanced sanitation procedures and the company is a national leader in automated car wash services, which minimize cash transactions at all its locations. In addition, members of Brown Bear’s Unlimited Wash Club have their vehicles washed at tunnel locations with no exchange of cash or credit card.
