UNION — Thursday at the NAPA Auto Parts Store of Union was a day of hot dogs, antique cars, “Rock & Roll” tool sales, and a visit by a very special truck.

Located at 322 N. Duncan Bypass, Union, the NAPA Auto Parts Store is a long-time member of the local business community providing local residents not only with auto parts, but also with tools for just about every task.

On Thursday, the store held its annual customer appreciation day, serving up those in attendance hot dogs for lunch and the opportunity to purchase the tools it has in stock at reduced prices.

“We do customer appreciation every year,” store owner Tim DeHart said. “We have tool sales and serve hot dogs. Its kind of a way of thanking all of our customers for their business.”

This year’s customer appreciation event had an added attraction in the presence of the “NAPA Tools & Equipment” truck which made its first visit to the Union store. Painted on the truck’s side were the slogans “Rock & Roll Sales Event” and “Tools On Tour!” along with the statement “There’s more to NAPA than just quality auto parts.”

Parked in the store’s parking lot with a tent attached to its side, the truck provided customers with a wide variety of tools to choose from in addition to the tools in stock in the store itself. Present along with the truck were NAPA personnel as well as tool representatives and manufacturers who did product demonstrations as well assist customers interested in the tools on display and available for purchase at reduced prices.

“This is the first time the NAPA tool truck has been to Union,” DeHart said. “It’s kind of a way of letting people know we are in the tool business, that we have not just a few tools, but many lines.”

In addition to the Tool Truck, the event also featured a display of a number of antique show cars, most of them owned locally. One of the antique vehicles, however, was the NAPA Foose Truck which DeHart said accompanies the Tool Truck on its visits to NAPA stores.

The NAPA Auto Parts Store, 322 N. Duncan Bypass, Union, is open Monday-Friday from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday from 6 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information about the store, the auto parts and lines of tools its has in stock and the services it provides call 864-427-3671.
