On Monday, Feb. 15, Josh and Kate Oldenburg became the new owners of NAPA Auto Parts - River Valley Parts Supply LLC in Belle Plaine.
Josh Oldenburg started working for the car parts and auto accessories store at 20-years-old and spent the last two decades working his way up through the company.
“I enjoy it. I just kept learning more and more as I went along,” said Oldenburg.
His first move as owner was to expand the hours.
Now the store is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m, Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“I’m hoping to grow it and make it bigger and keep expanding,” he said.
He said he is excited that the business is now locally owned, after many years of out of town management.
“We’re all from here, we all grew up here, we all work here,” he said.
NAPA Auto Parts - River Valley Parts Supply LLC is located at 727 E. Main St.
