The 12,000-square-foot facility was formerly known as Mr. V’s Professional Body Shop

Brookings, S.D.—ABRA Auto Body Repair of America has announced its expansion in South Dakota with the opening of ABRA Brookings, located in Brookings, S.D.

Formerly known as Mr. V’s Professional Body Shop, the facility and team have been a part of the Brookings community for more than 20 years. New owners, Chet Lockwood, Doug Sharp and Mike Brown, said they are happy to keep the locally owned operations going forward, as their experiences are rooted in their family-owned dealership centers. 

“We have an incredible team in Brookings, managed by the talented Kyle Lobien,” Sharp said. “As an owner of another South Dakota facility, I know how important it is to have an expert team supporting the community we serve, and we are all excited to showcase the professional repair capabilities or ABRA Brookings.”

ABRA Brookings is a 12,000-square-foot facility with I-CAR Gold certification.

“Many of our ABRA facilities have been longstanding local operators within their communities who prioritize the customer’s repair experience,” Mark Wahlin, VP of Franchise Development and Operations, ABRA. “That’s why we are thrilled to grow with local owners who care about their repair quality and can uphold the ABRA brand reputation.”

Owners Chet Lockwood, Doug Sharp and Mike Brown have a combined over 20 years of experience in the collision repair industry and are looking forward to supporting Brookings with the highest level of care. Visit to learn more.
