Safelite AutoGlass Opens Eighth Shop in St. Louis Market to Better Serve Local Customers

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Dec. 5, 2013 - On December 5, 2013, Safelite AutoGlass®, the nation’s largest provider of vehicle glass repair and replacement services, opened a new store located at 320 E. Homer M. Adams Parkway, Suite A, Alton, IL, 62002, making it the eighth facility in the St. Louis market. Other stores are in Maryland Heights, South St. Louis, O’Fallon, Fairview Heights, Springfield, and Decatur.

The new store can stock 100 glass parts, allowing Safelite to better serve local customers with same-day, next-day in-shop service. Mobile appointments remain an option.

Kevin Mueller serves as the store manager overseeing six employees and plans to expand next year.

“We look forward to continuing to serve the St. Louis community for all their auto glass repair and replacement needs,” said Robert Diefenbach, Safelite’s local market manager. “Few people think about auto glass until they have serious damage. Small chips or cracks can easily and effectively be filled to restore the windshield’s original structural integrity and prevent further damage. It can be a safe and economical alternative to a full windshield replacement. It only takes about a half hour in our shop.”

Safelite® customers in the Alton area and elsewhere can receive a quote or schedule service at or by calling 1-800-800-2727.
