NAPA Bridgewater—successful tool & equipment event!
The Fire Station in Bridgewater, NS enjoyed a quiet day recently and NAPA AUTO PARTS took full advantage! NAPA stores in Bridgewater, Lunenburg and Liverpool, hosted their first ever ÒNAPA Tools & Equipment Show and Sale.Ó Hundreds of customers filed in through the late afternoon and evening to check out all the specials, register to win prizes and of course- enjoy the free food- courtesy of Reg Tanner and his BBQ talents.
Booths and Manufacturer displays adorned the Fire Hall on a beautiful October evening and Blaine Bond of NAPA Sales said the turnout was great, ÒIt's a chance for the Shop owners and techs to meet all the NAPA reps in a more relaxed and comfortable setting, for sure!Ó NAPA manager Gary Conrad is also a member of the Bridgewater Fire Department and was instrumental in working with the Fire Department to stage this great event.
