History of Rishe’s Import Center

Rishe’s Import Center has had a rich history of growth over the past 2 decades. The hard work and dedication of Stephen Rishe and his son Jadie has turned what was once into a small shop into a full service import center. Customers come to Rishe’s from all over St. Lawrence county and upstate New York because they trust Rishe’s knowledge and expertise when buying or servicing their import vehicles.

The Little Shop on Linden Street

Rishe’s was opened in April of 1986 on Linden Street in Ogdensburg. We knew right when we opened our doors that our mission was to offer customers an alternative to the typical franchised dealerships by offering affordable auto repairs in a clean comfortable facility. We soon saw the need for affordable cars for our customers and began selling cars and trucks shortly after opening. Our shop quickly became known as The Little Shop on Linden Street.

Rishe’s Import Center

We are not a High volume dealer. In fact, we sell about 150 to 200 vehicles a year. This allows us to offer all our customers exceptional service and a very personal buying experience. In addition to giving customers a more personalized experience, we are able to continue to provide the best auto body repair shop and import service in the upstate New York area. In 1996 we became St. Lawrence County’s only AAA approved auto repair facility and for nearly 20 years we have specialized in selling and servicing import vehicles. We offer our customers a great selection of Carfax Certified vehicles with only one owner as well as servicing vehicles in our state of the art Bosch service center.
