APH Completes Remodel of St. Cloud Auto Value

St. Cloud, Minn. – June 26, 2012 – Automotive Parts Headquarters Inc. (APH), a St. Cloud-based aftermarket auto parts distributor and store group recently completed the remodel of its St. Cloud Auto Value parts store. The flagship store now features the latest in retail design, as well as central Minnesota’s largest showroom and inventory of aftermarket auto parts and supplies. To mark the occasion, APH will be hosting a grand reopening celebration at the parts store this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The grand reopening celebration is open to the public and starts on Thursday with in-store specials and giveaways. Friday’s events include a ribbon cutting ceremony, with mayor Dave Kleis at 11 a.m., and free food from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. The celebration ends on Saturday with free food and a meet and greet with Dean Dubbin and his record-setting Top Dragster from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The St. Cloud Auto Value parts store, formerly doing business as National Bushing & Parts Company, has been serving the community since 1936. In 1971, the store relocated to its current location on 29th avenue. Renovation of the store began this past November. The project, which didn’t close the store, included exterior renovation, interior remodeling and the addition of Granite City Paint & Body Supply, now doing business as Auto Value Paint & Body Supply.

“Whether professional installers or serious do-it-yourself customers are shopping for service items, hard parts, paint or the latest in tools and equipment, they’ll now find everything they are looking for conveniently under one roof,” said Dave Stephenson, store manager. “We look forward to providing new customers with an incredible product selection, while rewarding our loyal customers with an enhanced shopping experience.”

On the service side of the business, the store will continue to offer free electrical testing, as well as full machine shop and custom hydraulic hose services.

Stephenson invites everyone to stop by, meet the team and see firsthand the exciting changes taking place at the St. Cloud Auto Value parts store. Business hours are from 7:30 a.m. until 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Saturday, and from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday.
