Jim Moore Story
How did Jim Moore get into the upholstery business?
He started working for a local upholstery shop in June 0f 1969,
picking up and delivering cars to dealers and sweeping up the shop.
That was the summer of his freshman year of college. He continued
working at the shop while going to school. After graduating from
college he decided to stay and continue working at the shop. The
shop at that time started to sell tops and materials to other shops
in the Mid-Atlantic States. Jim managed the materials shipping department
where he learned quite a bit about the different qualities of tops
and materials. That department grew and grew, eventually shipping
tops and materials across the country and even exporting overseas.
Unfortunately the business grew beyond the management capabilities
of the owner (not Jim) and the business was liquidated.
After having sold tops and materials to upholstery shops for
years, Jim decided to do what he always wanted to do, open his
own auto top and upholstery shop. Jim opened his shop (good idea)
with a partner (bad idea). After five years of relative success,
Jim and his partner split because of major business philosophical
differences; Jim wanted to do high –quality work at a fair
price, his partner wanted to do fair work at a very high price.
On July 29,1991 Accurate Auto Tops & Upholstery opened its
doors (best idea). And the rest as they say is history.
