Napa in Preston to relocate

Posted in Preston Features

Napa's New Location coming soon

The Napa Store in Preston, Minn. which is currently located at 108 Mill Street, will soon be revving up its engine for a big move. Owners Mike and Sylvia Steien recently expanded the business and began selling hardware items in the Preston store and say, “We are fast outgrowing our current location with the addition of Root River Hardware.” They will be moving to a more visible location which will offer the expanded room the business desperately needs.

The new location will be the old BP One Stop building located at 613 Spring Avenue NW in Preston. The move will not be immediate as “there is still a lot of work to do to get the building ready,” stated Mike. The Steiens hope to have the move completed by the end of summer 2013. Once the building is ready and filled the Napa store of Preston will be easily accessible and will have plenty of space for customers to walk the aisles and find what is needed.

Mike and Sylvia own Chatfield Napa as well as Preston Napa/Root River Hardware and say, “Preston is our main hardware location,” and explain, “it is where we receive all of our hardware store freight weekly,” which is another reason more room is needed.

Items are shipped back and forth between the two stores two or three times daily, plus Mike states that “we go to our NAPA warehouse in Owatonna five days a week so if we don’t have something we can usually get it for the customers the same day,” which is a great service to the customers of Napa.

Preston Napa currently employs three full-time people. The hours at Napa in Preston are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m., Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., and Sunday - closed. To contact Napa of Preston phone (507) 765-2101, visit www.napaonline.com, or email napachatfield@aol.com.
