JAR Performance, 121 E. Sutherland St. in McPherson was nominated for and won AutoCare Center of the Year for the Southwest Division. The division is comprised of six distribution centers in five states, a total area with around 2800 total AutoCare Centers.

The nomination for this award is not based solely on sales numbers (as there are many much larger shops in the cities) but it is based on growth rate, and most importantly, community involvement. The nomination was accompanied by many recommendation letters from people in our community, including customers, vendors, a member of the McPherson fair board and others.

The representatives from the NAPA Kansas City Distribution Center, Will Ciaramitaro and Mario Garibay came onsite to present us with the award and a book that was put together with all of the recommendation letters that were submitted in request of our nomination. Also in attendance was Chris Albright, Manager for the McPherson NAPA Auto Parts Store, and John Scott, Owner of our McPherson NAPA Auto Parts Store, as well as the NAPA stores in Salina and Abilene.
