When he was growing up, Nicolaus would watch his father work at the successful local automotive machine shop that he had owned for more than 30 years. After heading to college, Nicolaus realized he needed a way to make money without compromising his grades or social life. Nicolaus looked to eBay to move some of his father’s old product online and earn money while at school.
After 34 years doing business locally in Colorado, Jim’s Automotive Machine Shop Inc. jumped at the chance to sell online. With the help of eBay, Jim’s Auto expanded its local presence and transformed into a global online business.
