There is a new auto parts store coming to town! Not a minute to soon! Napa doesn't answer the phone, so I just go to AutoZone in Morris. Jerry will find out that leaving that place run down will get him nowhere. Can't wait for the new part store!

when I call I get put on hold but mike or jerry call me back and now I hear they get a 2pm delivery know more next day jer or tomarrow morning mike. I like the low prices too. I dont go their
because the place lookes great. I go to get good prices and the guys do know there stuff. I never get the wrong parts, thats home town service . not some big box store if its not on the computer they can't find it or get it. napa has books to.they look for it and try to find what I need.

yeah i agree the napa in town is a great place to go..even in some cases where the part is a little more expensive..it's worth it becasue you know that the part is going to be correct and they have it or will get it for you very quickly..sure it will be nice to have a box store to get the stuff that napa does not sell.but i will keep going to napa!!!hey maybe they will build a new napa also..we could only hope..

either way i will still get my parts from there.. i really like the feeling of buying parts from a guy that knows his shit!! instead of the guy quitting a local resturant and going to work at a big box store casue it paid 15 cents more and he could be the manager in as little as 3 months..lol

yeah, but they never have the parts you need in stock that day. you have to wait until tomorrow. also they cant always get the part you need. i went there the other day looking for a bushing for a windshiled wiper arm and the guy looked at me like he never seen one before. i told him i guess i would just go to autozone and he told me to go to a junkyard. LOL. when you need to get the job done today, go to autozone. if you have a computer you can pretty much figure out whatever you need to in a matter of minutes. if you cant diagnose the problem yourself or online, you probablly dont have the compitence to fix your vehicle yourself anyhow.

well i know for a fact that they dont carry parts for a YUGO . it has to be hard to get parts for that car now a days..i agree a computer would be the way to go for them but maybe if they have sum competition in the area they will step it up..i had to get some axle shaft for my impala and had to wait the next day.but i was ok with it becasue i planned ahead of time.and when i got the axles into the store i picked them up and did not have to get greesy twice..i get what your saying..

all im sayin is this isnt "little house on the prarie". i get the whole small town business thing and everything, but this is 2012. when you need something you need it now. when it comes to fixing your car you cant always wait until tomorrow. i would love to be able to simply buy the part in town and save the drive. thats why i buy stuff at Ace Hardware. sure, they usually charge a little more, but you pay for the convience. i do agree that since they are the only parts store in town thats probablly why they arent striving to be the best.

ya I agree there's nothing worse than needing a part now and having to wait to get it the next day. Eventually they'll get the kinks worked out.

Stick a fork in them. They are done. Between cost and parts availability I pretty much gave up. You can always find a killer coupon code for Advance, so I just order online and go pick it up. Or plan in advance and have it shipped, they usually also offer free shipping to. And if your really not in a hurry you can also try RockAuto.com .

Napa is going to get a facelift. They plan to put their shack up on blocks. It makes the customers feel more at home.
