STAUNTON, Va. — Federated Auto Parts is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Federated Shop of the Year.
Nominated shops will be evaluated on a set of criteria established by Federated and found on the Shop of the Year nomination form. Shops may be self-nominated or nominated by others. The winning shop owner and guest will be awarded a three-night, four-day all-expenses paid trip to Phoenix as Federated’s guest at the 2014 Federated National Meeting, receiving special recognition during the Federated awards banquet.
“The response to the Federated Shop of the Year program has been terrific from the start and we are looking forward to selecting our next winner,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president for Federated. “Choosing only one shop is a real challenge since there are so many highly qualified shops around the country. If you know of a shop with knowledgeable, professional service technicians, superior service and repairs that result in very satisfied customers, and active community involvement, that shop could be the next Federated Shop of the Year.”
Last year’s winner, Weathers Motors, Inc. of Media-Lima, Pa., was nominated by Federated member Berrodin Auto Supply. As the winning shop owner, Larry Weathers III accepted the award on behalf of Weathers Motors.
“There are worthy shops nationwide and the Federated Shop of the Year program is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the best of the best, like Weathers Motors,” said John Berrodin, president of Berrodin Auto Supply. “I encourage anyone who has experience with a shop that meets the Shop of the Year program criteria to nominate that shop for this prestigious honor.”
