Eric dove in and purchased Reeds Locksmithing in May of 2017 as Dave is heading for retirement. He comes from a strong technical/mechanical background.
Eric will be the third owner of Reeds Locksmithing which orginally started as Crenshaw’s Sporting Goods and Fix It Shop in Grass Valley. Howard Reed bought it in 1963 and it became centered on locksmithing. Dave purchased it in the 1990’s and now it’s Eric’s turn.
