Franchise owners Tim and Stacy Kjaer are hosting the event to get to know the local community and give locals a chance to know them. The Shoreham couple has another Tint World franchise in Medford, which they’ve operated for five years. They opened for business in Riverhead Oct. 1.

Riverhead’s convenient location to both forks makes it a great spot for expanding their business to the East End Stacy Kjaer said yesterday and she and her husband were busy overseeing the finishing touches on preparations for today’s big event.

The grand opening celebration will feature a bounce house, the L.I. Aquarium shark truck, a “pumpkin patch” with free pumpkins for the kids, “Thomas the Train,” plus hot dogs, a hero, popcorn, cotton candy and an ice cream truck. There will also be giveaways including aquarium admissions, and service and customization packages from Tint World.

The event takes place today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition to handling all maintenance, service and repairs, Tint World mechanics do brake jobs and wheel alignments. The company also sells Michelin tires — as well as custom rims. Their customization services include glass tinting, detailing, decals, vinyl wraps, specialty lighting, remote-start systems and truck bed liners.

“Basically, we offer every kind of customization,” Stacy Kjaer said.

Tint World also offers tinting services for boats, homes and businesses.

Tint World is located at 1165 East Main St., just west of Elton Street. For more information, visit their Facebook page or their website.
