I started working at NAPA in Rangely in 1999. I was 16 years old. I worked there all through high school and into college. In my second year in college, the current owner of the store had some health issues and I told him I would take some time off school to run the store for him until he could get back to work. When he was ready to come back, he and his wife expressed that they would be willing to sell the store, if I wanted to purchase it. This was an opportunity that we didn’t want to miss out on. My wife, Michelle and I got an SBA loan and purchased the Rangely store in 2005. In 2006, we bought a new building and moved the Rangely store into a much bigger building. After 11 years we decided that we needed to grow our business and purchased the Fruita location. We were still wanting to grow and an opportunity came up to purchase the Delta and Montrose locations and we added them to our team in 2018. We have a great team, and we are very thankful for everything they do.
We are very proud to be part of the Western Slope of Colorado and enjoy getting to know our customers on a personal basis. We are very lucky to have you as one of our customers. I want to make sure that all of our stores, exceed your expectations when you come in or call. We are very honored to represent the NAPA brand, and thank you for supporting local business.
