“It’s hard to believe we’ve been here 29 years already” said Art Templeton, the store’s owner. When asked what it’s been like doing business in this bustling part of town for so long, he said “The time just flew. There have been local business changes over the years in this part of town, which is called Baychester, but it’s remained basically the same. And the people are still as nice as ever.”

Things haven’t always been perfect, of course. The “big box” auto parts stores have moved in close by and created a challenge for the family-owned business. Still, the store is a vital part of the automotive aftermarket auto parts business in the Bronx. It sells everything from exhaust systems, to brakes, tune-ups, wiper blades, anti-freeze and everything in between.

The aftermarket automotive market in New York has seen gradual yet steady growth over a five-year period.
