Expanded junkyard to open in Fort Myers

Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. – A controversial junkyard opens its doors to a new, self-serving auto parts yard after years of debate.

Owners of Garden Street Iron and Metal, located on Metro Parkway, are holding a grand opening ceremony for the new auto parts yard, Garden Street U-Pull It, on Monday at 9 a.m. on Hanson Street near Palm Avenue.

The yard’s expansion has been a hot issue in the past. Homeowners worry it could become an eyesore. But owners promised last year that a barrier would be built. They also said the expansion will create jobs.
