Automotive Parts Associates Welcomes Things N Things

Charles Appertey founded Phoenix-based Things N Things in 2004.

Automotive Parts Associates (APA) announced that is recently welcomed its newest TruStar member to the APA family: Things N Things LLC.

After years of being a tax accountant, Charles Appertey decided to take the plunge into his next chapter. In 2004, Appertey founded Things N Things in Phoenix, where he operates a warehouse for distribution.

“I wasn’t in a group at the time and was told about APA and their offerings,” Appertey said when asked asked why Things N Things chose to join APA. “After researching, APA was the group to join.”

APA President Steve Tucker added: “We are proud Charles Appertey chose APA as their partner for the future. Growing together is not just a slogan for us – it’s why we’re here. TruStar members get access to data solutions, marketing programs and other tools that they did not have access to as an independent. We are glad Things N Things decided to join us.”
