Oil-change business on Powell closes - to be replaced by another one
The Jiffylube oil-change business at 4125 S.E. Powell Boulevard closed on July 31 – at the end of their 20-year lease from the Les Schwab Tire Center next door. The staff of about 15 was informed of closing several months ago, and were allowed to transfer to other Jiffylube sites in the area. Several have moved to Vancouver, Washington.
The Powell Boulevard Les Schwab Tire Center owns the property, and offers a variety of vehicle services in the complex. When THE BEE asked about the future of the site, Les Schwab employee Jeramy Pewitt revealed, "Oil Can Henry's will be moving into the building there, probably around the end of August."
As the site is emptied, a large banner now advertises similar services at other Jiffylube locations – 2025 N.E. Broadway, 15168 S.E. McLoughlin Boulevard, and 5545 S.W. Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway.
