NAPA AUTO PARTS, the nation’s top brand in the automotive aftermarket, will unveil its newly revamped facility in El Cajon with a blowout grand reopening celebration on Sat., October 15 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 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.
El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells will officiate at a ribbon cutting ceremony at 12:00 p.m.
Located at 1235 Broadway, this 8,000 square-foot retail store has served El Cajon for nearly a decade. To accommodate increasing demand for auto parts and supplies among residents in the surrounding communities, NAPA selected the El Cajon store 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.
NAPA takes pride in giving back to the community and is partnering with the San Diego Rescue Mission to sponsor a non-perishable food drive from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Visitors are welcome to bring in non-perishable food items or make a donation to the cause. This admirable program has roots back to 1954 and serves area residents in need with a variety of programs and services. Attendees can also take part in free safety programs hosted by the California Highway Patrol at the event.
