Are you tired of looking at those scratches on your car but don't want to fork out the cash to pay for a full-on paint job? NAPA Samoa has got you covered.

The company now has available, car paint that can be customized and sold in spray cans, making quick touch-ups a breeze.

This is the perfect  — and most inexpensive — way to get your ride looking new.

What was once known, as Samoa NAPA is now NAPA Samoa, following a take over in mid-January 2014.

The new management team continues to work on not only increasing their product line but, emphasizing the importance of customer service.

In addition to car paint, NAPA Samoa also makes hydraulic hoses, fit to any size, and the inventory now also includes windshields.

General manager Iusitino Williams told Samoa News yesterday that the one thing that sets NAPA Samoa aside from other companies that offer the same products, is the customer service.

He said half of their staff members are women, and three are of different ethnicities, which provides "that balance" needed in order to cater to all members of the community.

The company carries parts for all vehicle makes and models, and if they don't have it in stock, special orders can be made for anything from heavy equipment to tractor and truck parts.

There is a four-day wait for special orders on parts for small trucks and cars, and it takes a week for heavy equipment.

NAPA Samoa, at the Tafuna Industrial Park, carries the largest inventory of auto parts on island and they are open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 7:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.

This year, the company will play a part in the MASI 25th Anniversary celebration/ Miss American Samoa pageant, when they sponsor store supervisor, 23-year-old Sharane Smith from Aua, as she competes for the 2017-2018 Miss American Samoa title next month.

Smith loves working on cars but more important — she is one of the many friendly faces you will see during your next visit to NAPA Samoa.
