MPEC | NAPA purchases the NAPA Auto Parts stores based in Waukegan & Zion, Illinois

Rockford, July 12, 2021 – MPEC—

MPEC | NAPA is pleased to share that we have acquired the NAPA Auto Parts stores located in Waukegan and Zion, Illinois.   These markets are a strategic geographic fit for MPEC – they are located on the shores of Lake Michigan between our Kenosha and Highland Park stores.  Mark Palmer and his family have owned these two NAPA Auto Parts stores for more than four decades.  They built a track record of excellence in these markets, and we are honored to have the opportunity to build upon those successes.

This marks our fifth acquisition of 2021 and it brings us to 86 stores across the company.  Strategic acquisitions such as this continue to be a significant part of our growth strategy, and we know that teams in Waukegan and Zion will make immediate contributions to MPEC | NAPA.   Please join us in welcoming the entire team to the MPEC | NAPA family.
