Graffigna Bros. Auto Parts is the oldest parts store in Lodi, or maybe in California, on site. This old store has serviced its customers for 106 years — through World War I, the great depression, World War II, the Korean War, and so on and so forth.

After 69 years with NAPA, the corporation wanted a change in looks, inventory and location. I refused, and they exercised their right not to sell me parts. A new supplier was found overnight. Performance Warehouse and Factory Motor Parts stepped in and covered all our lines that we had from NAPA. Now we have the best of both worlds — original factory parts and a full line of WIX, GATES, and everything we had from NAPA.

I would like to thank all the people who wrote letters of support to keep NAPA as a supplier — it was not meant to be. We are open and selling parts as we have for the last 106 years.
