parts store making major changes

Plumas Motor Supply in Quincy is undergoing a facelift. Owner Ed Cammack tells us that that means a new layout, new look and some new products. Some of his inspiration came from a recent four-day trip to Orlando, where he spent time at a convention and trade show meeting reps from all of his top vendors. Among the many things that caught Ed’s attention was the new LED lighting technology for cars and trucks that makes for brighter lights with a longer life. But the most interesting partof the convention —besides the many classes on marketing and computers — was focused on Advanced Auto Parts’ recent acquisition of Carquest and what it ultimately means to member stores and their customers. Ed is convinced that this will be a great change for his business and of great value to the community and his customers.
