NAPA Auto Parts Groundbreaking

KENDALLVILLE—Very soon, Jenkins Automotive Inc. will have a new location for its NAPA Auto Parts retail store.

A groundbreaking event will take place on November 7 at 10:00 a.m., at the new site located at 501 West North Street.

Company President Rick Jenkins, the NAPA staff, and leadership from DJ Construction Company will be in attendance to answer any questions the public might have about the upcoming new facility.

NAPA’s current location is 960 Harlash Street, where Jenkins has owned the business for one year.

Said Jenkins, “We are excited to build a new facility on U.S. 6, as our growth of the wholesale market and acceptance in the Kendallville community has been remarkable in the past twelve months. And the next step in our business plan is to build a new, larger, more customer friendly and accessible location to help us attract more retail business.”

Once built, the new facility will consist of 6,000 square feet of retail and back room space.
