   Mike's Fence Center and Mobile Mix expanded to Madras April 6, with a shop located at 429 N.W. Cherry Lane.
   Owners Mike and Cathie Groves originally started their fence business in Prineville in 1980, then moved the store to Bend. The mobile mix side of the business opened in 2004 and has grown to include yards in Bend, Redmond, Prineville and Madras.
   "They felt Madras would be an excellent place for a satellite store, as things are growing," said Steve Reed, manager of the fence center.
   The Madras store currently has three employees and one mobile mix truck, with more to be added as the business grows.
   Mike's Fence Center offers all sizes and styles of fence, including chain link, wood, vinyl, and farm and ranch. The center also has crews to do your fence installation for you.
   "Customer service is a priority at Mike's Fence Center, and Mike's Mobile Mix offers on-time concrete service with the ability to do both small and large jobs," Reed said.
   The business is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information call the fence center at 475-4595, or the mobile mix service at 475-6461. -- By Susan Matheny.
