FARMVILLE — Entrepreneur Demond Barnes has made a name for himself in Farmville.

The owner of Barnes Detailing has called Wilson Street his home for two years and has plans to expand his business across the street next month.

Barnes Detailing garnered the Farmville Chamber of Commerce’s Merchant of the Month award for August.

“This corner was a disgrace to the town. I watched Demond each day and the pride he was taking to make this corner beautiful and keep it beautiful,” said Judy Gidley, the director of the Farmville Chamber of Commerce, as she presented Barnes the coveted award Aug. 2.

In addition to renovating the facility at 3915 W. Wilson St. to open a car wash and detailing business, Barnes is a strong supporter of Farmville, Gidley added.

The Snow Hill native considers Farmville home. He is a member of Mt. Moriah Church in Farmville and a proud supporter of United at the Cross, local school supply giveaways and area fundraisers.

Barnes was honored to receive the award for a career that is his passion.

“Thank you for the recognition and thank you to my customers for their continued support. I have always loved cleaning cars. I cleaned my parents’ car every day at Piney Grove Apartments,” he said, explaining he worked for area car cleaning businesses and decided to try his hand at owning his own business. “I thought: I can advance from here.”

Seven years ago, he opened Barnes Car Wash, a mobile car wash. He would travel eastern North Carolina in a van fully equipped to properly wash vehicles.

Two years ago, he decided to find a permanent home. His business continues to provide the on-site mobile car cleaning service, too.

The Farmville-based Barnes Detailing provides basic car washes, complete detailing and window tinting. Basic vehicles start at $25 for cars and $35 for SUVs. The company also provides services to boats and RVs.

The shop employs three, including Barnes and his cousins, Terrance Barnes and Angelo Artis.

Demond hopes to soon expand his business with locations in Wilson and Ayden.

His new venture, Barnes Auto Sales, a used car lot, will open on Wilson Street next month.
