WENATCHEE — January 5 will be the last day of work for all but a handful of the 428 employees at Alcoa’s Wenatchee Works smelter, a top union official said Nov. 24.

Chad Holaday, owner with wife Amanda of Holaday’s Custom Muffler & Fabrication, has installed so many exhaust systems in the last seven years that he can fit, bend and weld a new Honda Accord muffler pipe with hardly a second thought.
After 35 years in the same Wenatchee location, The Muffler Shop has moved to 221 Park St. That’s in the auto-repair district between the 7-Eleven store and the George Sellar Bridge at the south end of town.
