NAPA AUTO PARTS, the nation’s top brand in the automotive aftermarket, will unveil its newly revamped facility in Plainfield with a blowout grand reopening celebration on Sat., August 13 from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. The one-day only event will feature family-fun activities and hundreds of NAPA’s most popular items at rock-bottom prices – plus in-store coupons – for summer travel. Plainfield Mayor Michael Collins and Will County Executive Larry Walsh will officiate at a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11:00 a.m.
Located at 23835 W. 135th St., this store has served Plainfield for more than 30 years. To accommodate increasing demand for auto parts and supplies among residents in the surrounding communities, the Plainfield NAPA store was selected as one of the company’s national priority locations for extensive upgrades. The transformed store offers a clean new look, an expanded product lineup and a significantly enhanced experience for consumers.

The grand reopening will also support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund – with a $1 donation by NAPA for every NAPA “We Believe in Heroes Bucket” sold.
“This grand reopening is our way of demonstrating our appreciation for NAPA’s new and existing customers and fans in the greater Plainfield area,” said William Burchardt, district manager NAPA, Chicago. “We’re inviting the entire community to check out the new store, enjoy the food and festivities – and stock up on auto supplies at amazingly low prices.”
