Hibbing Auto Value Relocates to Graysher Shopping Center

Hibbing, Minn. – September 20, 2010 – The Hibbing Auto Value parts store recently completed its move from downtown, to a 6,500 square-foot suite at the Graysher Shopping Center.  The new location, officially located at 2504 Beltline, has been open for business since September 13th.

“We simply outgrew our downtown location,” said Chad Elhardt, store manager.  “The Graysher Shopping Center is not only more accessible for our customers, but it will better represent the quality of our parts and the dedication and professionalism of our team.  We think the people of Hibbing are really going to be impressed.”

Since relocating, Elhardt and his staff of two full-time and five part-time employees have been busy filling the showroom and arranging the store’s expanded inventory of nationally branded and private label parts, supplies, accessories and paint.  Elhardt is confident the added inventory, coupled with overnight delivery service from Automotive Parts Headquarters, a St. Cloud-based aftermarket distributor and store group, will allow his customers to get the parts or paint they need, right away.

On the service side of the business, the store will continue to handle all of the area’s automotive refinishing product needs, from custom paint matching to mixing.  The team members at Auto Value are also trained and equipped to test starters, alternators and batteries.

A grand opening celebration is scheduled for October 1st.  The event will be open to the public and feature free brats, hotdogs, chips and root beer floats from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.  To help recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m., the store will be hosting a fundraiser for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  During the fundraiser, anyone can purchase a slice of pizza provided by Domino’s and Pizza Ranch, and a glass of lemonade, for 99 cents.  All proceeds will go to the Foundation.  In-store specials and door prizes, such as an HP Mini Netbook and Apple iPod, will be offered throughout the entire day.

Elhardt and his team invite everyone to stop by, meet the staff and checkout the new location.  The store is open from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Saturday, and from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday.  For more information, the Auto Value team can be reached at 218-263-8931.
