Thief River Falls Auto Value Moves to New Location

Thief River Falls, Minn. – July 1, 2010 – The locally-owned Thief River Falls Auto Value parts store recently completed its move from 212 Atlantic Avenue North to 1325 3rd Street West.  The new location has been open for business since June 22nd, and features a customer-friendly showroom, modern machine shop and well-organized warehouse.

“We simply outgrew our previous store location,” said Cory Bugge, store manager.  “The new location is not only more accessible for our customers, but it will better represent the quality of our products, but also the dedication and professionalism of our team.  We think our customers are really going to be impressed.”

Since relocating, Bugge and his experienced staff have been busy filling the showroom and arranging the store’s expanded inventory or parts, supplies, accessories and paint.  Bugge is confident the added inventory, coupled with overnight delivery service from Automotive Parts Headquarters, a St. Cloud-based aftermarket parts distributor, 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 machining needs, from piecework to a complete engine rebuild.  The team members at Auto Value are also trained and equipped to test starters, alternators

A grand opening celebration is scheduled for August 17th.  The event will be open to the public and feature free food, beverages, door prizes and in-store specials.

Bugge and his team invite everyone to stop in, meet the entire team and checkout the new location.  The store is open from 7:30 a.m. until 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, and from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Sunday.  For more information, Bugge and his team can be reached at 218-681-1880.
