You will see Riley around the shop when you stop in for a pickup or to have a windshield repaired. From the beginning she has grown up coming to work with Justin every day. She’s been a steady force on our team after joining the Ace glass team shortly after Justin purchased the business in 2006.

When Riley isn’t riding in the Ace Glass work vehicles she is known as the resident social butterfly. She loves to visit our shopping center neighbors and hope for a little snack to come her way. Frequent visits next door to Auto Discounters is always in her routine to get some attention. She also enjoys greeting our customers for the chance to be in the spotlight for a moment.

When she was a puppy she would try to venture off in the back of our shop where she has a nice grassy area to play in. Once when Riley was about 4 months old she took off between the buildings behind our shop. Justin chased her all of the way to Midlothian Turnpike at the corner of Courthouse Rd. A very busy intersection!  She ran across the road into the median and Justin could not get her to stop for anything. “It was a game to her and she was quick as a fly”.  Fortunately, with the help of some passing drivers, Justin finally caught her and won the game.

Amazingly Riley has managed her way around our busy Glass Shop for seven years without receiving the first cut or scratch from glass or mirror as she explores around in the shop. Stop by and visit Riley, in the meantime enjoy some of her favorite past times, be sure to give her lots of attention!
