Walla Walla’s AAA travel and auto club office is bidding bon voyage.
The organization known for everything from cruise bookings to roadside assistance will close its Dalles Military Road office Jan. 4, staff said this morning.
AAA is reportedly restructuring its operation and is gearing its services to more densely populated areas. The office in Lewiston is also closing its doors, said Alexi Repoff, AAA’s local insurance agent.
The closure is expected to affect three office employees in the travel and membership services divisions. However, Repoff will be relocated to downtown Walla Walla, where AAA will continue to offer insurance services. The new location has not yet been determined.
AAA Walla Walla has operated at 1361 Dalles Military Road since 2004. Repoff’s move downtown will be return to the area. Before the move in 2004, AAA operated on Main Street.
