A Part of the Family

GTCA-K Inc. Partners With Auto Value

St. Cloud, Minn. — January 23, 2014 — Minnesota-based Automotive Parts Headquarters Inc. (APH), a family-owned aftermarket auto parts distributor and store group, is pleased to announce the addition of GTCA-K Inc., located in Barron, Wisconsin, to its family of independently-owned Auto Value parts stores. As a result of the changeover, the parts store will now be known as Barron Auto Value.

Barron Auto Value is owned and operated by Steve, Cindy and Dillon Palmquist. The auto parts store was a member of the Carquest jobber-marketing program for more than 30 years. Steve, and his late brother-in-law, Mike Davidson, opened the store in 1973. Dillon became manager in 2003.

Since joining Auto Value on January 1, the Palmquists and APH have been very busy updating the store’s inventory to better meet the needs of area residents and businesses. The retail showroom also received a complete reset. The Palmquists are confident the improvements, coupled with daily delivery from APH, will allow their customers to get the parts and supplies they need, when they need them.

On the service side of the business, Barron Auto Value continues to offer oxygen and acetylene cylinders. Custom hydraulic hose repair and replacement will also be made available.

The Barron Auto Value parts store is located at 235 East Division Avenue and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday. Dillon Palmquist and his team can be reached at 715-537-9231.
