Aaron’s Repair Center Wins A $50,000 Shop Makeover In The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance’s Garage Overhaul Promotion

The Whitefield, New Hampshire, shop is the second winner in the Alliance’s spring sweepstakes


Aaron Belanger thought something was up when, as he put it, “…two big wigs from Bond Auto Parts were coming to see me. I thought it meant something was serious, but no way did I figure it was about that!” The “that” Aaron was referring to was winning a $50,000 shop makeover in Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper’s Garage Overhaul Sweepstakes.

The “big wigs” in question were Mark Mast, vice president of marketing and Patrick Marshesseault, regional manager of Bond Auto Parts, who presented Aaron with the check for $50,000.

When asked about how he might put the money to work, Aaron didn’t hesitate; he knew exactly how he planned to use the money.

“Winning the money couldn’t come at a better time. I just finished making some improvements, and this will allow me to really elevate my shop to the next level.”

Belanger started with the shops exterior and plans to improving his signage, installing an exterior lift along with some landscaping and repairs to the driveway. For the interior he plans to update his waiting room and customer service area with fresh paint, new moldings, flooring and furniture. He also wants to freshen up the office with new paint and shelves as well as updating the bathroom and installing a work sink for the shop techs.

Belanger’s shop is already fairly advanced in technology tools, but he plans to install an upgraded security system and add security cameras to the outside.

Aaron’s Repair Center is a valued customer of Auto Value shareholder Bond Auto Parts. He participates in many of the programs Bond offers and is a devoted user of the Auto Value’s e-commerce tool, MyPlaceforParts.
