Matthews Repair

Aaron Matthews and his girlfriend, Stephanie Osthus, stand in front of Matthews Repair’s new location. The business had outgrown its place on Oak Street, so it recently moved to the former Carol Ann’s shop on Washington Avenue.

A leap of faith has proved to be a good move for one local repairman. With years of small engine experience, Aaron Matthews opened his own shop in Iowa Falls just after the first of the year. Now, he has moved Matthews Repair to meet demand.

Matthews had been a mechanic in the Iowa Falls area for some 18 years before branching out on his own. For the first two months, he was doing everything by himself, from repairs to paperwork. When he added DJ Fisher as a second mechanic in early spring, the old AMR building at 317 N. Oak St. in Iowa Falls suddenly became too small.
