Indy Promo

Andrew Murray spent Friday May 24th from 10am till 1:30pm doing a promo for NAPA at the NAPA D.C. center in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Promo was cut short due to rain but it went exceptionally well with numerous people coming up to talk with Andrew and take pictures with him.`On Saturday May 25th Andrew did another promo for NAPA in Newcastle, Indiana from 10:30am to 1:30pm. Even though the store in New castle is set back from the road we still had a great number of people who came to meet Andrew. The manager at the store who just took over the store several months ago said she knew several people in Newcastle didn’t even know there was a store in the city. To overcome this we set Andrew up on the edge of the road so as people drove by they could see our setup. The promo went better then expected and was a great experience for all in attendance.

May 10th Napa Promenade Mall Promotion

Andrew Murray spent Saturday May 10th, doing another successful promotion for Napa Auto Parts, at the Promanade mall in Temecula, CA. It was the opening weekend for the new movie "Speed Racer" and as the promotion was held outside the entrance to the Edwards theater, the crowd was beyond expectation. Andrew signed autographs and hats, showed off NAPA parts and products. The team also had a camera setup so that kids could have there photo taken in one of his winning karts. At the busiest times we had so many people at the booth it was impossible for us to take pictures of the crowed around the booth. During these busy times, even with two photo printers, we were only just able to manage the large number of kids wanting to get a photo in Andrews kart, with some of them wanting two photos, one for their parents and one for their grandparents, a photo that futures NAPA's logo that will for sure stay with them for years to come. The promotion was a hugh success for Napa. Literally hundreds of people either took a part of Napa home with them, or were given discount promotional packets for future use.
