Home of Dylan Thomas
Recently travelled to the home of Sir Tom Jones, Catherine Zeta Jones, Aled Jones and Dylan Thomas – no, not the great Welsh poet, but the son of Ivor Thomas – car dealers and dismantlers from Lampeter.
A typical, local garage, serving the community around them and it is probably one of the most traditional, family owned and run sites that I visit during the course of the year.
Developed by Ivor over 50 years, the second generation of the family head the operation with the third generation being heavily involved, even more so following the sudden and very sad death of Ivor at the start of 2010.
What more could you want from your local garage, large supply of parts in stock, friendly and knowledgeable staff, sensible labour rates, vehicles for sale at affordable prices, and exemplary customer service.
Many businesses could do worse than take a look at Ivor Thomas and Sons, their no-nonsense, honest approach has served them well over many years, and will continue for many years to come.
Their web site (www.ivorthomasandsons.co.uk) is well worth a look, and if you are ever in Ceredigion, take an hour out and pay them a visit.
