Scott Ferguson is the new general manager and works with 14 other team members at the new location. A 12-year veteran of the automotive and retail sales industries, Ferguson recently joined the Advance Auto Parts team.
The new store offers customers a range of parts and recognized national brands as well as several free services, a news release announcing the store’s opening states. Employees will provide free installation of windshield wipers.

The store offers delivery to local commercial customers. During store hours, customers may drop off used motor oil and batteries for recycling.
