P&F Automotive Warehouse Partners with NAPA, Buys Kennewick and Richland NAPA Stores
One of the oldest companies in Central Washington, 76-year-old Yakima Grinding and P&F Automotive Warehouse, is pleased to announce that it is changing suppliers and linking up with the nationally known NAPA Auto Parts organization, a move it says will propel the family-owned company into the future.
Under the arrangement announced September 12th, 2021, P&F Automotive will become Vic’s Auto & Supply. Why VIC’s Auto & Supply? Yakima grinding was founded back in 1922 and Vic Pitzer purchased Yakima Grinding in 1945. Pete and Fred Pitzer were the 2nd generation owners through the 70s, 80’s & 90s. Then came the third generation Jon Pitzer, Kevin Pitzer and family friend John Ibach. All three have worked their way up running stores under Pete and Fred learning the business. Changing our name to “Vic’s ‘Auto & Supply” is a name that honors our past and a tool to help us move forward into the future.
