The auto and wheels business is located on Yadkin Road, near a main entrance to Fort Bragg military base. More than 8,500 civilian employees on the base will be furloughed one day a week starting in late April, the equivalent of a 20-percent pay cut, possibly affecting small businesses near the base.
