Federated Accepting Nominations for Shop of the Year

STAUNTON, Virginia – December 14, 2015 – Nominations are now being accepted for the Federated Auto Parts Shop of the Year contest. The Federated Shop of the Year award recognizes a top shop with a demonstrated track record of excellence in such areas as customer service, quality repairs, knowledgeable staff and community involvement. 


"The Federated Shop of the Year is considered a very prestigious honor by our membership,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president for Federated. “Federated members do business with so many outstanding shops that it is always a tough decision to name just one as the best of the best. We are accepting nominations now and can’t wait to see which shop will be honored as the next Federated Shop of the Year.”

Federated Shop of the Year nominations must be received by January 26, 2016. Shops may be self-nominated or nominated by others and will be evaluated on a set of criteria established by Federated and found on the nomination form.

Last year’s Federated Shop of the Year, Freddie Kish’s Complete Car Care Center of Waco, Texas, was nominated by Federated member Arnold Oil Company of Austin. Other past winners include Brighton Auto Service of Brighton, Mich. and Weathers Motors, Inc. of Media-Lima, Pa.
