The Brush location adds to the NAPA store’s six Colorado locations in Boulder, Broomfield, Sterling, Yuma, Wray and Frederick
Boulder, Colo.—Cole Shaffer, president of University Auto Parts, said his NAPA Auto Parts business has expanded to another location in Brush, Colo., on Monday.
“The store has a great crew and awesome customers. We are also going to be doing a little hardware as part of this one-stop shop,” Shaffer said in a Linkedin post. “Excited to see what the future holds here. Big thanks to the team at NAPA Denver for helping us get the deal done.”
The Brush location adds to the independently owned NAPA store’s six area locations in Boulder, Broomfield, Sterling, Yuma, Wray and Frederick.
Shaffer started University Auto Parts in 2006 at 2125 32nd St. in Boulder. Since then, the business has seen strong growth in the state. In 2012 it added a second location in Broomfield, and following year, Shaffer expanded for the first time to Northeast Colorado and opened a Sterling location.
In 2017, the business further expanded its Northeast Colorado footprint adding stores in Yuma and Wray. Both stores were owned for a long time by Bruce Hall. In 2019, a sixth store was added in Frederick, Colorado, which had been owned by Jeff Ewing.
