Lehman's Garage has replaced Minnesota Auto Body at 619 S. 7th St.
Minnesota Auto Body had been on the block directly west of the Hennepin County Medical Center, 701 Park Ave., since 1947.
Darrell Amberson, president of Lehman's Garage, which has five Twin Cities locations, said the Downtown repair shop will focus on collision and glass repairs.
"We're very enthused about the location," Amberson said. "There are no other collision-repair places in the area."
