Chris Johnson

Chris Johnson is a third-generation auto parts professional. In the 1960s, his grandfather opened a parts store in Wadena, Minnesota, and eventually sold the business to Johnson’s dad. As a toddler, Johnson would roam the aisles in his walker. Around the age of 10, Johnson started working at the store – counting parts, dusting shelves and doing janitorial work.
