NAPA Auto stores consolidates
LAKE WYLIE -- NAPA Lake Wylie Auto Parts at 547 Charlotte Hwy. closed its doors one last time last week at its Plantation Square location.
Ralph Dickson, who has owned the Lake Wylie store for more than 10 years, as well as stores in Clover and Gastonia, Shelby and Denver, N.C., said they decided to consolidate with the NAPA Clover Auto Parts, 203 N. Main St., Clover, to offer a large inventory of marine parts, auto parts and PPG paint supplies at one location. Wylie store manager Mike Jenkins will now work at the Clover store.
"We had no room to expand and needed a bigger store to increase inventory," said Chappell Hiers, general manager. "We're going to still do deliveries, and we hope to keep everybody."
Dickson said customers now will find more of the same quality products and professional help at the Clover location.
Clover store hours are 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Call 222-7151 or visit napaonline.com.
