UAP Inc. has announced that two auto parts stores in Quebec’s Laurentian region north of Montreal have joined the NAPA banner.
Pièces d’auto Ste-Agathe and Pièces d’auto des Sommets are now NAPA Auto Parts associate stores.
This partnership will allow NAPA to consolidate its position as a leader in the Laurentian region. NAPA now serves the entire territory between Montreal and Mont-Laurier.
Established in 1994, Pièces d’auto Ste-Agathe has an enviable regional reputation and a well-established customer base. The same can be said for Pièces d’auto des Sommets, which opened in 2017 to meet growing local demand.
In a joint statement, the stores’ co-owners, Yanik St-Jean and Ghislain Millette, said: “We’re delighted to be joining the NAPA banner as we enter the next stage in our growth.
“The strength and range of NAPA’s programs will allow us to provide our customers with exceptional service while developing our partnerships with them. Our entire team at both stores is thrilled about the new direction we’re taking today.”
For NAPA, these additions will strengthen the company’s presence in the Laurentians.
“We wanted to partner with a market leader in the Laurentians to increase our coverage in the region,” said Dominic Baribeau, Vice President, NAPA, Quebec Region.
“Yanik and Ghislain’s two stores represented a prime opportunity for NAPA to make its mark north of Montreal. What’s more, their corporate culture mirrors NAPA’s in terms of customer service, quality, team spirit, and dedication. There’s no doubt that we’re now in a terrific position to succeed in the Laurentians.”
Pièces d’auto Ste-Agathe is located at 1250 rue Principale Est in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, while Pièces d’auto des Sommets is located at 390 rue Principale in Saint-Sauveur.
