Sidney NAPA Changes Ownership, Name and Location
October 16, 2019 | View PDF
On June 1, 2019, the Sidney NAPA store changed ownership and name, becoming Sidney Auto Supply. On July 1, the former Farm & Home building was purchased with work beginning immediately to upgrade that space. New flooring, lighting and a coat of paint have brightened up the interior while new siding in NAPA blue and tan has spruced up the exterior. A target date of October 28 has been set for the new store to open, with a NAPA crew coming in to ensure a seamless move.
The NAPA Auto Parts sign is at one end of the building while the sign at the other end says Farm & Home. Within a month or two after the NAPA opening, area consumers will once again be able to experience the amazing selection and customer service that was Farm & Home. "They had the knack of supplying what was needed," operations manager Bryan Christensen said. "Our goal is to recreate what Buxbaums had established in their 50 years of serving the MonDak region." Friendly, experienced staff have been retained to ensure a quality experience for the hardware store customers.
Christensen is excited about the move and what the stores will bring to Sidney and the surrounding community. One of the main drivers of the project was to counter the recent loss of several stores, and take a step back towards revitalization of the local communities. "We wanted to give back to the community and try to make up for some of the loss. It just makes sense and we want to see that everywhere,' he stated.
Both new stores are locally owned and locally operated with local employees offering excellent customer service.
With approximately double the space, Sidney Auto Supply will be able to double the auto and truck parts inventory NAPA is currently able to carry. "The addition of square footage allows us to stock far more inventory and hopefully, when a customer walks in the store we can say, "Yes, we have it." We'll have a vast supply of heavy-duty truck parts, auto parts, tools and equipment," he stated.
Heavy-duty truck parts are an important addition for this area which sports multiple construction and trucking businesses. "Whether you have a Peterbilt or a Kenworth, we should have what you need," Christensen said.
The current NAPA employees have been retained with Jennifer Anderson as manager. Anderson has 15 years experience while the rest of the staff has over 5 years combined experience. Christensen has spent most of his adult life in the parts business and is looking forward to seeing some of the people and faces he has dealt with over the past 25 plus years. They are all anxious to get into the new facility and continue assisting customers with all their heavy-duty truck parts, auto parts, tools and equipment needs. Stop by 809 E.
