Ontario Parts Manager Wins APA Contest

Terry Sutherland, parts manager with Welland Nissan became $10,000 richer on July 31.
About 2 months ago, Terry scratched off a ticket he received from his sales representative from
Young Automotive Professionals, Frank Nava. While Terry wasn’t an instant winner of gift certificates, he did fill in his name on the card and gave it to Frank, who submitted the ticket for the $10,000 grand prize.
“When Frank first called me to inform me that I was the winner of the grand prize, I was virtually speechless,” said Sutherland, who has worked at Welland Nissan for fifteen years.
John Grandilli & Claudio Sceppacerqua, owners of the Young Automotive Professionals, located in Port Colborne, ON, Canada are members of Bestbuy Distributors Ltd, who in turn are members of Automotive Parts Associates (APA).
“Welland Nissan has been a loyal customer of ours for many years and it is a pleasure for our shops to be able to participate in this contest.” said Bob White, sales representative for Young Automotive.
APA’s WD shareholders conducted the sweepstakes at nearly 300 locations across the United States and Canada between April and June.
Each time a product was purchased from one of the sponsoring manufacturers, the installer received a scratch ticket.
Thousands of dollars in instant winning gift certificates were distributed and tens of thousands of completed entry forms were returned for the chance to win the $10,000.
“We would very much like to thank our sponsors, who make this sweepstakes possible.” said Dan Freeman, president & CEO of APA.
Sponsors of this year’s sweepstakes included Airtex Engine Management, ASC Industries, Airtex Fuel Delivery Systems, Autolite, Beck Arnley, Bendix, Bosch, Cardone, Coni-Seal, Denso,
Dorman, Exide, Fram, Four Seasons, Remy, Loctite, KYB, Standard and Permatex.
